The M5 CS is priced at €241,415 on-the-road, while deliveries will begin in spring 2021

BMW has officially revealed its new M5 CS- the most powerful production car in the history of the brand. The BMW M5 CS is the first special edition of the iconic model, and it boasts supercar-level performance, with 0-100km/h achieved in only 3.0 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 304km/h. The M5 CS is priced at €241,415 on-the-road, while deliveries will begin in spring 2021.

The BMW M5 CS is the flagship model in the CS range which includes the BMW M3 CS, BMW M4 CS and BMW M2 CS. Power is provided by a 4.4-litre V8 engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology that develops 635hp – 10hp more than in the BMW M5 Competition. It is well-suited to the track with a lightweight design, bespoke chassis tuning and centralised intelligent control for the Active M Differential.

Equipped with the M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, the BMW M5 CS accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.0 seconds. The special edition needs just 10.4 seconds to reach 200km/h from rest and is electronically limited to a top speed of 305km/h.

The new BMW M5 CS builds on the chassis of the BMW M5 Competition and has a seven-millimetre lower ride-height plus shock absorbers developed for the BMW M8 Gran Coupé. These dampers reduce fluctuation in wheel loads, improving on-the-limit handling. The bearing springs at the front and rear axle of the BMW M5 CS have been retuned and damper control has also been refined to consider the lower vehicle weight and the tyres’ increased performance potential.

The BMW M5 CS rides as standard on Pirelli P Zero Corsa track tyres, which are fitted to 20-inch M forged wheels with a stunning Gold Bronze finish. The V8 engine features a bespoke BMW M Power cover made from exposed carbon fibre and a full-colour M logo. The sports exhaust system is a dual-branch, flap-controlled system and the sound depending on which of the various modes affecting engine characteristics – EFFICIENT, SPORT or SPORT+ – is selected. The driver can use the M Sound Control button at any time to soften the car’s acoustic presence – for example when driving through a residential area.

M Carbon ceramic brakes for the BMW M5 CS deliver superb stopping power and are fitted as standard. The bonnet of the BMW M5 CS is made entirely from lightweight CFRP. The front splitter and the exterior mirror caps - taken from the BMW M8 – together with the additional rear spoiler on the bootlid and the rear diffuser are also made from CFRP. In addition to aiding aerodynamics, these parts also contribute to a near 70kg weight reduction over the BMW M5 Competition.

The kidney grille surround on the BMW M5 CS is finished in Gold Bronze, as are the M gills on the front wings and “M5 CS” badges on the kidney grille and boot. The door sill finishers come with illuminated “M5 CS” badges, while extended high-gloss Shadowline trim features on the exterior mirrors, window frame surrounds and B-pillar. The M5 CS is also equipped as standard with BMW Laserlight,

The BMW M5 CS is available in three different paint shades – Brands Hatch Grey metallic or exclusive BMW Individual matt paint finishes Frozen Deep Green metallic and Frozen Brands Hatch Grey metallic. Inside, it features four individual M Carbon bucket-style seats with integral head restraints and illuminated M5 logos. An outline of the legendary Nürburgring circuit is imprinted on the head restraints. The gearshift paddles are made from carbon fibre and the steering wheel spokes have black chrome trim.
