635hp BMW M5 CS

0

The new BMW M5 CS is its most powerful M car ever! The CS version of the M5 super saloon is a limited-run special edition powered by a tuned 635hp, 4.4-litre, V8 engine. The 4.4-litre V8 with M TwinPower Turbo technology develops 635hp at 6,000rpm, and peak torque of 750Nm is produced from 1,800 – 5,950rpm.

The engine’s characteristics can be altered at the touch of a button from the basic EFFICIENT mode to SPORT and SPORT+, the latter two further quickening the engine’s response to accelerator movements.With 10hp more than in the BMW M5 Competition the M5 CS can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds. BMW says the CS fuses exceptional track performance with luxury and everyday usability.

The BMW M5 CS builds on the established presence of the BMW M3 CS, BMW M4 CS and BMW M2 CS. As the flagship model in the range, the BMW M5 CS represents the highest rung of the BMW M ladder and sets new standards, combining standout performance attributes with an exclusive and luxurious appearance. (We won’t talk about its C02 emissions but let’s just say they significantly contribute to its high price).
The M5 CS arrives in Ireland in the Spring and is priced at €241,415.
