Drag race: BMW M8 Competition vs BMW M5 CS vs BMW M5 Competition

January 26, 2022 by

What do the BMW M8, BMW M5 CS and BMW M5 all have in common?

Well, aside from appearing in today’s carwow drag race, quite a lot.

All three share mechanical bits. That includes a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged engine, an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.

With the BMW M8 Competition and M5 Competition, that engine kicks out 625hp and 750Nm of torque.

The M5 CS gets a little more oomph though, with 635hp — though retains the 750Nm of torque.

It gets some weight-saving measures though that makes it the lightest of the three here, coming in at 1,825kg, while the normal M5 Competition comes in at 1,895kg.

Though both are a lot lighter than the BMW M8 Competition – here in four-door Gran Coupe form — which weighs 1,980kg.

On paper then, you’d guess the M5 CS beats the lot. Will that come to fruition, though? You’ll need to watch to find out…
