With 635hp and 750Nm torque the first ever M5 CS makes a powerful statement
The BMW M5 is now in its sixth generation, since the first variant launched in 1985 the M5 badge has signified a blend of high performance and luxury. For the first time this model designation is being paired with the exclusive CS letters. Standing for Competition Sport these two letters symbolise the purest driving experience and the pinnacle of M. The M5 is no exception following in the footsteps (or tyre marks) of the M2, M3 and M4 CS models.
As with previous models the M5 CS receives an increase in power with the familiar M TwinPower Turbo V8 now delivering 635hp with a Max torque of 750Nm. Helping to deliver this power is a set of Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres whilst a bespoke suspension system lowers the car by 7mm to improve handling. Carbon-ceramic brakes come as standard and offer not only confident stopping power but a weight saving of 25kg.
Overall the BMW M5 CS reduces its weight by a total of 70kg over the Competition model. As with other CS models this is achieved thanks to the use of carbon fibre components. One of the biggest weight savings comes from a re-designed carbon fibre bonnet which feature bold new vents to assist with cooling. The features a host of carbon details such as a new front splitter, rear diffuser, spoiler and wing mirrors.
Complementing the dynamic performance is a unique aesthetic with a choice of three paint colours; Brands Hatch grey, Frozen Brands Hatch Grey and the new Frozen Deep Green. As standard the M5 CS features a series of Gold Bronze finishes on the kidney grills, side scuttles and 20” Y Spoke M Wheels. This special model also has a bespoke headlight set up that uses a motorsport inspired yellow tint for the daytime running lights.
The unique details continue once you step inside the M5 CS with the most noticeable element being the lightweight carbon fibre bucket seats that are also found in the new M3 and M4 Competition. Take a closer look and you will notice that the outline of the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife is engraved into the headrests highlighting where the development of this iconic BMW took place. Passenger capacity has been reduced to four in a 2x2 configuration with the addition of carbon bucket seats in the rear passengers. The steering wheel is now clad in Alcantara with revised carbon fibre shift paddles, CS badges completes an interior cabin that feels like a luxury racer.
