Watch BMW M5 CS surpass 190mph on Autobahn
A test conducted by a YouTube channel not only confirms BMW’s 190mph claim but proves the M5 CS is faster… by 1mph.
The 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.
As 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.
Recently, 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.
BMW 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.
Priced 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.
