2022 BMW M5 CS: 627 HP and Rear Bucket Seats for the Most Powerful Production BMW Ever

The M5 CS is lighter and more powerful than the M5 Competition, but we reckon it's worth buying for the gold-on-green paint alone.

BY CHRIS TSUI JANUARY 26, 2021

There was the M3 CS, then the M2 CS, and now there's this: the 2022 BMW M5 CS, an even super-er super sedan that continues BMW's tradition of capping off an M car's production run with a lightened, tightened model. And this one just so happens to be the company's most powerful production car to date.

To create the CS, BMW took the 617-horsepower M5 Competition and tuned its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 to make 627 horsepower. Torque remains a more-than-healthy 553 pound-feet but all of that is now available over a rev range that's precisely 90 rpm wider (1,800 to 5,950 rpm versus the M5 Comp's 1,800 to 5,860 rpm). More significantly perhaps, the M5 CS is 230 pounds lighter thanks to less soundproofing and increased use of carbon fiber-reinforced plastics.


As a result, zero to 60 mph is dealt with in 2.9 seconds, 0.2 seconds quicker than the Competition model and quicker than any other production BMW that's come before. The top speed is, appropriately, 190 mph.

To cope with the increased pace, BMW has fitted stiffer engine mounts, springs that are 10 percent firmer, more negative front camber, and lowered the ride height by 0.2 inches. The rear anti-roll bar and tow-link ball-joints have been made stiffer still. The lighter M5's suspension has been fine-tuned to deal with both the car's decreased heft and stickier Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires which are fitted to what might be our favorite of all the CS's enhancements: 20-inch gold wheels.................................

........................... Limited to just one model year, the 2022 BMW M5 CS will arrive in the U.S. in the latter half of 2021 and will cost $142,995. ...............
