The latest BMW M5 has slowly but surely been getting more powerful and more aggressive since its introduction in 2018. The M5 became M5 Competition, but now there’s a new king in town – the M5 CS.
CS is now reserved for the top of the tree versions of BMW’s M/// range, and has been seen on the M2, M3 and M4 as harder, more track-focused versions. So does it work on a near-2tonne saloon?
Well, to start with it’s now 70kg lighter thanks to some weight saving measures like the rather gorgeous carbon fibre bonnet with nostril vents. And the 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 now puts out 626bhp, 10 more than the Competition. These add up to a 0-62mph time of just 3.0 seconds, a 0-124mph time of 10.4 seconds and a top speed of 189mph. Speedy!
Add in a few other visual tweaks like matte green paint, gold lightweight wheels, larger rear spoiler, titanium exhaust and lots of exclusive CS trim parts inside and this new M5 model looks to be a formidable beast!
And you can win one right here only in the BOTB Dream Car Competition!
