THE BMW M5 CS.

The BMW M5 CS is the top-of-the-range high-performance model from BMW M and, with its 4.4-litre V8 engine generating 467 kW (635 hp), is the most powerful car in the company’s history. The new BMW M5 CS sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 10.3 seconds. The top speed is an electrically governed 305 km/h. With the BMW M5 CS, BMW M has focussed on rigorously lightweight design, with many components made from carbon-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The chassis has also been adapted to the weight of the car, which is lighter than other M5 models, with retuned bearing springs on the front and rear axles, and further refined damper control. Many details of the new BMW M5 CS are a tribute to the close association between BMW M GmbH and motorsport.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    Official data on power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the NEDC take into account differences in the selected wheel and tire size; figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. WLTP values are used for assessing taxes and other vehicle-related charges that are (also) based on CO2 emissions, as well as for the purposes of vehicle-specific subsidies, if applicable. Where applicable, the NEDC values listed were calculated based on the new WLTP measurement procedure and then converted back to the NEDC measurement procedure for comparability reasons. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see https://www.bmw.com/wltp.
