We always wondered what the CS, in the BMW CS Concept name, stands for and we were never able to get an official answer or figure out on our own. Well, today, we finally have our answer. CS=Counter-Strike. It seems like this "latest weapon" built by BMW is trying to take over the luxury automobile market by knocking out, literally, its competitors. I know, I know, it sounds a little confusing, but I'm getting there :)

The Dubai Auto Show is one of those car shows where all the luxury cars are shining on the floor ready to impress all the rich players in the area. This year was no different from others, so all the luxury brands were present there, including Ferrari and BMW. The BMW floor was assigned right next to Ferrari's, so a CS Concept model was parked right in front of one of those $200,000 Ferrari pearls (the price was just a guess).

So, here is where the CS decides to "strike" and show its muscles. :) Ok, leaving the joking part aside, what actually happened was that the BMW driver was trying to drive off the CS Concept out of the show's floor and while reversing, it managed to hit the Ferrari parked behind it. Look at the guy in the photo, not a very good helper.

Outcome: just a scratch on both cars' bumpers.

Witnesses say that, as people gathered around, the BMW driver was actually the one that was mad and he was blaming the Ferrari driver for this incident.
