THE MotoGPᵀᴹ BMW M AWARD 2017.

THE MotoGPᵀᴹ BMW M AWARD 2017.

It’s highly sought after: the BMW M Award. This year, the award for the best qualifier in the MotoGPᵀᴹ season goes to Marc Márquez. 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. 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 handed over to Marc Márquez during the last round of the 2017 season in Valencia, where the 24 year old local hero secured also the MotoGP™ Championship.


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.

BMW M, MotoGP, M Award, M4 CS, Marc Márquez

The winner of the BMW M Award 2017: Marc Márquez with his new BMW M4 CS.

For Marc Márquez, the handover of keys has become something of a ritual. The five-time MotoGPᵀᴹ world champion has already received five BMW Award Cars – from 2013 to 2017 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 2017: a BMW M4 CS.
