NEW – Having become the most powerful model in the history of the Motorsport division, this road will be launched in small series.

In a story where it is as much about prestige as it is about satisfying the passion of a few amateurs, the builders are overflowing with imagination. This is how we must understand the latest version of the BMW M5 which uses for the first time in its history the designation Clubsport (CS) until now reserved for the M2 and the M3 / M4 duo. More horses, less kilos: such is the poster of this super M5. Developed from the recent M5 Competition, the M5 CS Special Edition sees its 4.4-liter V8 with direct injection of biturbo gasoline gain 10 horsepower to display the impressive power of 635 horsepower and a comfortable torque of 750 Nm, constant of 1,800 to 5,950 rpm. At the same time, at the cost of a systematic hunt for extra pounds, engineers managed to reduce the mass by 70 kilos.

This program is based on the adoption of carbon-ceramic brakes and the intensive use of composite materials, plastic reinforced with carbon fibers. Besides the roof, the front hood, the rear diffuser, the engine cover, the intake silencer, the mirror caps but also the aerodynamic lips and the trunk spoiler are made of this lightweight material. The exclusive character of the M5 CS is also based on the grille contours and 20-inch bronze-tone rims, on a yellow LED light signature and Naca air intakes in the front hood.

The interior presentation is that of a sports car with the large carbon paddles on the steering wheel and the four monobloc bucket seats highlighted with a red stripe and embossed the layout of the north loop of the Nürburgring on the headrests. The chassis has been completely redesigned to accommodate the increased performance of the M5 CS and to meet the demands of circuit getaways.

Top speed is limited to 305 km / h and 100 km / h is reached in 3 seconds, an improvement of 0.3 seconds compared to the Competition version. The first deliveries of this exclusive version of the M5 will begin next summer at a price of 199,900 euros.
