A test conducted by a YouTube channel not only confirms BMW’s 190mph claim but proves the M5 CS is faster… by 1mph.

T​he BMW M5 CS is the latest car to have received BMW M’s ‘CS‘ treatment which essentially consists of taking an already fast ‘M‘ car and making it even faster.

A​s a result of its ‘CS’ treatment, the M5 CS‘s 4.4-litre V8 engine produces 627 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque making it the most powerful production M car to have ever been produced by BMW.

R​ecently, German automotive YouTube channel AutoTopNL put the M5 CS to the test by taking it to the Autobahn. They tested the car’s acceleration and top speed.

B​MW claims a top speed figure of 190mph along with a 0-60mph time of 2.9 seconds. During its test, the M5 CS got from 0-60mph in 2.98 seconds and managed to hit a GPS-verified top speed of 191mph. The acceleration may appear to be worse than the official figure from BMW however this test was not conducted in a professional manner, therefore some leeway must be given.

P​riced at over $140,000, the M5 CS certainly isn’t cheap. In fact, it costs $40,000 more than the already expensive M5 and almost $90,000 than the standard 5 Series. However, one could argue that the car’s mind-boggling performance justifies its price.

    • I would say a regular M5 makes more sense because it has more comfortable suspension and it doesn't have bucket seats.
