New BMW M5 CS Teased, Debuts Next Month With 626 HP


Spy photographers have caught the BMW M5 CS on numerous occasions, but now the company is finally gearing up to unveil the highly anticipated model.

In a new teaser video, BMW M CEO Markus Flasch showcases the model ahead of its debut next month.

As you can see the clip, the super sedan is based on the M5 Competition and features a unique grille with a gold bronze surround. The model has also been equipped with motorsport-inspired yellow headlights and forged aluminum wheels, which are backed up by carbon ceramic brakes with red calipers.

While the video doesn’t provide a peek inside the cabin, Flasch said the M5 CS will have carbon fiber bucket seats from the M3 and M4. He went on to say the model is a “true four seater” so we can expect something special in the rear as well.

Flasch was coy on specifics, but confirmed the car will produce 626 hp (467 kW / 635 PS). That’s a slight increase over the M5 Competition which has a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 developing 616 hp (460 kW / 625 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.

Besides the power boost, the M5 CS has gone on a serious diet as the model has dropped 154 lbs (70 kg.) This means we can expect a DIN weight of 4,023 lbs (1,825 kg).

With more power and less weight, the M5 CS should easily outperform the M5 Competition which runs from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and can hit a top speed of up to 190 mph (305 km/h). Of course, we won’t find out how fast the car is until this dreadful year comes to a close.
