BMW M5 CS v BMW M Superbike: Drag Race

For the first time, the BMW M5 receives a CS model, which serves as the market’s most hardcore M5 and is only available for the 2022 model year. It can accelerate from a standstill to 60 miles per hour (97 kilometers per hour) in 2.9 seconds, making it the fastest production BMW money can buy.

But can the M5 CS compete with the M 1000 RR, BMW’s first M superbike? Another superbike versus sports car drag race, courtesy of Carwow in the UK.

While previous motorcycle versus car battles involved MotoGP bikes, the M 1000 RR is a race-ready superbike.

It’s worth noting that this is the outgoing M 1000 RR, which means it still lacks the longer, lighter Pankl titanium connecting rods. This Beamer, on the other hand, already produces 212 horsepower (158 kilowatts) and 83 pound-feet (113 Newton-meters) of torque from its 999cc inline-four engine while weighing only 423 pounds (192 kilograms) without the rider.

Needless to say, even before the arrival of the newer 2023 model year version, the M 1000 RR is at the top of the BMW Motorrad lineup.

Of course, the BMW M5 CS is far more powerful than the bike, with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 producing 626 hp (467 kW). Despite the weight savings over the standard M5, it’s also a lot heavier, weighing in at 4,023 lbs (1,825 kg). (clubdeportestolima)

By numbers alone, you can tell that the Beamer has a power-to-weight ratio advantage over the Bimmer. Is this true in the actual competition? The video above should help you determine your standing start, rolling start, and brake test scores.
