While we’d argue that the current BMW M5 is fast enough, today’s super-sedan customers always want more. Hence the 2022 BMW M5 CS. Following the CS formula established by the M2 and M3/M4, the M5 CS and will bring more power and less weight to the table. Today, BMW M CEO Markus Flasch teased the M5 CS on Instagram, giving us another preview of the super super-sedan.
The new M5 CS will have 626 horsepower from its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8, an increase of nine hp over the current M5 Competition Pack. Torque remains the same at 553 lb-ft, but before you get disappointed about these small engine changes, know that BMW claims the CS will be over 150 pounds lighter than the regular M5. That’s thanks in part to a carbon-fiber hood, and the crazy carbon bucket seats from the new M3/M4.
In an Instagram Live story, Flasch also revealed the M5 CS’s bronze kidney grill trim and yellow headlights. The car also sports very tasty gold forged wheels, with standard carbon-ceramic brakes behind them. Those wheels are wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires measuring 275/35 up front and 285/35 at the rear. We already know the CS is fast around Hockenheim, and we can’t wait to see what it can do at one of our local haunts.
