The BMW M5 CS may very well be the model’s most attention-grabbing vehicles. There are a whole lot of manufacturers that declare to have excessive, high-performance sedans however the M5 CS is the true deal. Not solely is it lighter, sharper, and extra dynamic than ever earlier than nevertheless it has two sports activities seats carved into its backseat, reasonably than a conventional bench seat. It is perhaps the primary ever car the place individuals will wish to journey within the again whereas on the monitor. So when Joe Achilles was given the possibility to drive it for a second time, he needed to benefit from the chance to overview it once more.
Are you able to blame him? The BMW M5 CS is just not solely probably the most highly effective manufacturing BMW in historical past, it’s the quickest, too. Its 627 horsepower 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 helps rocket the M5 CS from 0-60 mph in a Joe Achilles-recorded 2.75 seconds. It’s not my job to fanboy over something however candy tapdancing Jebus, that’s quick. The one different sedans that may beat which are all electrical and have lots extra energy. Both BMW is being overly conservative in regards to the M5 CS’ energy figures or Bavarian horses are lots stronger than regular.
One other massive Achilles mentions is simply how way more alive it feels that different fashionable M vehicles. The truth is, regardless of it being an enormous, heavy automotive, it has extra really feel and engagement than even his G80 BMW M3 Competitors. If that’s true, I can’t wait to drive one as a result of the G80 is a mighty factor.
But, regardless of being quicker and extra participating than some other M5 variant, it’s additionally extra comfy. The staff at BMW M is getting actually good at tuning suspension for CS vehicles. Hopefully that knowhow interprets to straightforward M vehicles quickly.
The BMW M5 CS is well one of the crucial thrilling and most particular — if not the very most enjoyable and particular — vehicles to put on a BMW Roundel not too long ago. I can’t wait to get behind the wheel.
