BMW Announces the M5 CS - most powerful BMW M CAR ever.

January 27th, 2021

BMW M has unveiled the much anticipated M5 CS, a sportier, more luxurious and even more exclusive BMW M5. Delivering 635bhp from its TwinPower Turbo V8, the M5 CS is the most powerful production car in the history of the company.

Otherworldly performance seen only in supercars (0-60mph takes just 3.0 seconds), makes this incarnation of the definitive super-saloon the best yet. The M5 CS maintains its predecessors 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' split personality, feeling right at home on the road or racetrack.

At the heart of the M5 CS is BMW M's most powerful engine ever, the 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8, developing 635bhp, matched with the M xDrive system and highly tuned chassis, the M5 CS looks to be a true track weapon, as well as a luxurious, long distance cruiser.

The stainless steel exhaust system delivers a distinct, low rumble V8 soundtrack (skip to 6:09 in the video above to listen), which under load produces a symphony that highlights its power and appetite for revs.

Much like the M8 Gran Coupé, the M5 CS features BMW's Laserlights - as daytime driving lights and side lights, they shine in the familiar white, but when low or high beam is activated, they switch to a distinctive yellow tone that BMW M5 CS drivers can also see from the outside.

The M5 CS seems to be a real gem in BMW's line up - with its mind bending power output and raw, unadulterated performance, the M5 CS looks like it will build upon the M5's legacy as a wolf in sheep's clothing, a tradition first started by the original E28 M5. Having driven the M5 Competition, it's fair to say that the CS will need to impress in order to ensure it can justify the step up not only in price, but also in performance.

What is for sure, however, is that BMW M's engineers have created a very special iteration of the M5 saloon. As we move into the age of electric power, cars like the M5 CS are becoming evermore rare, so we should definitely applaud BMW M for producing such a feral, explosive vehicle.

Who knows, perhaps this will reinstate the Bavarian's crown of 'The Ultimate Driving Machine'?
