The BMW M2 CS, M3 CS, and M4 CS have had an older brother with very bad ‘milk’. It was a matter of time before BMW M GmbH, the sports division of the Bavarian brand, expanded its range of ultra sports models with the arrival of the BMW M5 CS, a special and limited edition of the legendary BMW M5 that becomes,
Suddenly, in the most powerful car in the history of BMW Motorsport, which is saying a lot. BMW M5 CS: a beast of 635 hp heart of the new sports saloon is a 4.4-liter V8 engine with 635 hp (467 kW) of gross power paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which also features the 2WD model to offer rear-wheel drive pure. Such a beast accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.0 seconds and from 0 to 200 km / h in 10.4 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 305 km / h.
The consumption figures say it all: 11.3 l / 100 km with the M xDrive all-wheel-drive and 10.9 l / 100 km with the rear-wheel-drive 2WD mode. In terms of CO2 emissions, the M5 CS homologates figures of 257-248 g / km in the WLTP combined cycle, so it is not the best car to circulate in Central Madrid or get stuck in a traffic jam on the way to work.
Its natural habitat, logically, is the road, the more remote, clear of traffic and winding the better. Although the best and safest place to race is always on the racetracks, let no one forget it.BMW says that the design of the M5 CS has allowed a weight saving of 70 kilos compared to the BMW M5 Competition, which was already a bad beast with its 625 hp and 750 Nm that allow it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km / h. As the M5 Competition marks 1,970 kg on the scale, that means the new M5 CS would weigh exactly 1,900 kg

BMW M5 CS: four individual seats in the BMW M5 CS, up to four people can travel in sports seats: the driver and front passenger in the M Carbon seats and two other passengers in the rear bucket seats.
The black Merino leather upholstery (fine grain for the front seats) also features eye-catching contrast upholstery and decorative stitching in Mugello Red. Integrated headrests (with illuminated M5 logos on front seats) depict the outline of the legendary Nürburgring circuit.
The L-shaped light signature of the BMW Laser headlamps glows yellow instead of white when the low beam, high beam, or welcome light are turned on, reminiscent of successful racing GTs.
BMW M5 CS: Maximum Equipment
standard equipment of the M5 CS includes a stainless steel sports exhaust system with four real tailpipes and M carbon-ceramic brakes, whose calipers are painted red as standard or, optionally, with a Gold finish. 20-inch forged Y-spoke M wheels are also standard.
The bonnet, front apron, mirror caps, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, M Power engine cover, and intake duct/silencer are made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), although some elements come in exposed carbon fiber. Along with the Brands Hatch Gray metallic paint, the BMW Individual Frozen Brands Hatch Gray Metallic and Frozen Deep Green Metallic matt paint finishes are also available.
The M Alcantara upholstered steering wheel is adorned in the center with red stitching, a classic racing car detail, while the spokes have Black Chrome trim and the shift paddles are made of carbon fiber. A light fixed cover on the center console replaces the usual armrest with an opening cover. Its black Merino leather is complemented by red double stitching. Red is used again for the CS badge on the dash and between the bucket seats at the rear.
