2002 BMW CS1 Concept

BMW unveiled the innovative CS1 concept car, a departure from its traditional focus on larger vehicles. Designed by Chris Chapman, this compact offering represents an independent line within the BMW family, embodying the brand's signature traits of elegance, dynamism, and sculptural purity of lines.


At the heart of the CS1 concept lies a potent 1.8-liter gasoline engine, delivering 115 horsepower and 175 Nm of torque. This engine incorporates BMW's cutting-edge Valvetronic valve control technology, developed by the company's engineers to optimize performance and efficiency.


Power is transmitted to the wheels through a Sequential Manual Gearbox (SMG), offering seamless gear shifts for enhanced driving dynamics. The clutch operates automatically, adding convenience to the driving experience.


The CS1 concept rides on large 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels fitted with 215/45 tires at the front and 235/45 tires at the rear. This wheel and tire combination ensures optimal traction and stability, complementing the car's agile handling characteristics.


With its innovative design, advanced technology, and dynamic performance, the BMW CS1 concept car sets a new standard in the small car segment, reaffirming BMW's commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive innovation.
