2022 BMW M5 CS Sedan

  • The quickest and most powerful BMW production vehicle ever.
  • 627 hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • 230 lbs. lighter than M5 Competition.
  • 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Top speed of 190 mph.
  • MSRP of $142,000 plus $995 Destination.
  • Limited to one model year only. U.S. arrival 2nd half of 2021.

The new limited production super sedan builds on the M5 with more power, greater performance, lighter weight, and exclusive interior features. The use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) materials improves the power-to-weight ratio to elevate the performance and to enhance its high street and track capabilities. And, for the first time, the M5 features a four-passenger seating configuration with M carbon sports seats up front and two individual bucket seats for the rear passengers.

Power & Performance

The S63 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 has been redesigned to produce 627 hp at 6,000 rpm, which is 10 hp more than the Competition model. The model delivers 553 lb.-ft from 1,800 to 5,950 rpm, which is 90 rpm wider than the M5 Competition. The eight-cylinder’s engine redline is 7,200 rpm and the high-pressure direct fuel injection ensures precise fuel atomization and fast engine response.

The 8-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system allows the M5 CS to reach 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than the M5 Competition model. The top speed with the standard M Driver’s Package is 190 mph. The driver can select from three xDrive modes including 4WD, 4WD Sport, and 2WD. The Dynamic Stability Control system can be adjusted between three settings to further enhance driver control – DSC ON, MDM (M Dynamic Mode), and DSC OFF.


The 2022 M5 CS is designed with exterior carbon fiber reinforced plastics to help reduce its weight. CFRP components include the roof, hood with vents (in unpainted carbon-fiber), front splitter, mirror caps, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler. A special Gold Bronze finish is applied to the BMW kidney grille surround, to the model badging, and to the 20-inch forged light-alloy wheels.

The engine cover with full-color M logo and stripes is also made from CFRP. The Adaptive LED headlights feature L-shaped light tubes that illuminate in a racing-inspired yellow instead of the standard white and include BWM Individual Shadowline trim.

Exterior Colors

The M5 CS is available in a standard Brands Hatch grey metallic paint with two optional BMW Individual colors – Frozen Brands Hatch grey metallic and Frozen Deep Green metallic.

Standard M Carbon Ceramic Brakes

For the first time, red six-piston fixed front calipers and single-piston rear floating calipers with M logos and carbon-ceramic brake discs are standard on the M5 CS. Gold calipers are also available as a no-cost option. The M Carbon ceramic brakes reduce the model’s weight by 51 lbs when compared to the standard M Compound brakes found on the M5 Competition model.


The most notable design inside the M5 CS Sedan is the seating-for-four configuration in black Merino leather with Mugello red accents and contrasting red stitching. The front seats feature new lightweight, heated, and electrically adjustable M carbon bucket seats. The two rear passengers each have their own individual seats. The headrests of all four seating positions are imprinted with a map of the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife which was integral to the M5 CS’s development.

The M Alcantara steering wheel includes a perforated section with red background in the 12 o’clock position and lightweight carbon-fiber shift paddles with matching red trim in the cut-outs and on the back panels. The M seat belts are designed with BMW M tri-color stitching and the “M5” badge also appears on the velour M floor mats with bespoke piping and in the illuminated “M5 CS” badge on the door sill finishers.
