The BMW M5 CS will be the most powerful car in M history
Last year, BMW gave us a teaser of the highly anticipated M5 CS. It was enough to get all BMW fanatics drooling over the concept and after much wait, BMW has finally revealed all the juicy details about the M5 CS. The CS will become the most powerful car in BMW M history.
The M5 CS is packed with a twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine that will produce 467kW and 750 Nm of torque. The M5 CS will get paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.0 seconds flat.
The M5 CS will be much lighter than its M5 Competition sibling, as it loses 70kg worth of curb weight. The M5 CS will also get fitted with an all-carbon-fibre bonnet as well as a special lightweight interior centre console. The M5 CS will come with an exclusive stainless-steel sports exhaust system that features four tailpipes. Much like the recently launched M2 CS, the M5 CS will get a redesigned front bumper, and vented hood for improved cooling. The L-shaped light tubes of the BMW Laser headlights will now illuminate yellow instead of white when low beam, high beam or the welcome light is switched on.
The cabin of the M5 CS can be enjoyed by four passengers. The driver and front passenger seats will come in M Carbon while the two other passengers will come as an individual rear seat. Black Merino leather covers on the seats with contrasting panels and decorative stitching in Mugello Red, easily make the interior of the M5 CS stand out. The front seats will benefit further from illuminated M5 logos on the headrests. The M5 CS will get an M Alcantara steering wheel as well as carbon fibre gearshift paddles.
As it stands only a limited number of BMW M5 CS models will make their way to SA and will arrive in the third quarter of 2021.
