The new BMW M5 CS is not only the fastest version of the M5 available, it is BMW’s fastest and most powerful M production car ever. Move over M8.

How BMW got there is easy: add power and reduce weight. The 4.4-litre V8 now puts out a crazy 626hp and 750nm of torque

Over 70kg of weight has been saved thanks to carbon fibre exterior panels and carbon fibre bucket seats. Yes, even the rear passenger seats are bucket seats.

Performance has therefore been improved. 0-100km/h now takes just 3 seconds, which means it’s only a tenth of a second slower than a Ferrari F8. 0-200km/h takes 10.3 seconds, which is impressive for a four-seater saloon. Top speed is electronically limited to 305km/h.

Power is nothing without control so the BMW M5 CS has a lower 7mm ride height for a lower centre of gravity, retuned spring bearings, bespoke engine mounts, and dampers from the M8 Gran Coupe.

Large carbon ceramic brakes are standard and all M5 CSs will come with the funky gold wheels that you see here.
