New 627hp BMW M5 CS is the fastest and most powerful BMW ever
When it appears in the dealer showrooms later in 2020 what you will see is the BMW that BMW engineers in the ‘M’ section would create if let alone to do their thing.
The 4.4litre V8 engine delivers 467 kW (627hp) making the BMW M5 CS the most powerful car in the history of BMW M. Standard features include the 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which also offers a 2WD mode for pure rear-wheel drive.
The company has also managed to reduce the weight by 70kg compared to the standard M5 which certainly assists in the 0-100kmh sprint time of just 3 seconds and 0-200kmh in a smidge over 10 seconds. The bonnet, front splitter, exterior mirror caps, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, M Power engine compartment cover and intake silencer are made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The top speed is limited to 189mph (305kmh).
The L-shaped light tubes of the BMW Laser headlights illuminate yellow instead of white when low beam or high beam, supposedly to hint at GT racing cars.
Standard specification for the M5 CS includes its stainless-steel sports exhaust system with four unadorned tailpipes and the M Carbon ceramic brakes, whose callipers are painted in Red as standard or Gold as an option.
The M5 CS is priced at £140,780 on-the-road.
