THE MotoGPᵀᴹ BMW M AWARD 2017.The year’s prize: a BMW M4 CS.

It’s highly sought after: the BMW M Award. BMW M GmbH will be giving the award for the fifteenth time this year to the best qualifier in the MotoGPᵀᴹ season. This year’s prize is a real highlight. The newly launched BMW M4 CS (combined fuel consumption: 8.4 l/100km; combined CO2 emissions: 197 g/km) is currently the fastest four-seat M Automobile on the racetrack. This exclusive, limited edition special model is available as of July 2017, and literally brings motorsport to the road. That makes the new BMW M4 CS the perfect winning car for the fastest qualifier at the MotoGP™, the supreme class of motorcycle racing. The 460 hp high-performance automobile was unveiled during the Spanish Grand Prix in Jerez de la Frontera.

 

In every sense, the BMW M4 CS brings motorsport to the road, with 600 Nm of torque. In addition to the excellent driving dynamics of the new BMW M4 CS, a number of additional high-performance components also add to the mix, such as the Active M differential, an especially sporty alignment of the M double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic for extremely fast shifting among the seven gears without loss of power, plus the Cup tyres. The consistent use of lightweight materials inside and out has led to a reduction in the vehicle weight as well as to an optimisation of its agility and responsiveness. The exclusive light alloy wheels of the BMW M4 CS are inspired by motorsports, and the innovative OLED rear lights add new design accents. In the interior, the sporty look of the BMW M4 CS is convincingly continued – from the lightweight construction of M sport seats in Alcantara leather Anthracite, to the M Alcantara steering wheel, as well as many other exclusive details. So it’s certainly worth it to put the pedal to the metal in the race against the clock at the MotoGPᵀᴹ.

The winner of the BMW M Award 2016: Marc Márquez with his new BMW M2.

For Marc Márquez, the handover of keys has become something of a ritual. The four-time MotoGPᵀᴹ world champion has already received four BMW Award Cars – from 2013 to 2016 he dominated the qualifying rankings and scored the most points. The Spaniard is proud of the BMW M Award – as are former award winners like Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, Jorge Lorenzo, Sete Gibernau and Nicky Hayden. And it’s also no wonder, considering Márquez’s catch in 2016: a BMW M2 Coupé (Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 8.5 to 7.9. CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 199 to 185) in Metallic Blue. This season is also looking good for Marc Márquez. Yet the unveiling of the BMW M4 CS as this year’s BMW M Award Car will certainly spur on his competition. As always, the MotoGPᵀᴹ will be exciting to the very end.
