Whenever we talk about high-end sports sedans, the first vehicle that comes into our mind is BMW M5 that has always been considered as the standard for high-end sports sedans. It was back in June 2020 when BMW updated the M5 but hasn’t truly made much of a modification. However, the more hardcore M5 CS is upping the game in a true sense with even more efficiency and less bulk to carry around.
Lighter, Faster, Stronger
As far as the formula for all BMW CS cars is concerned, it starts with a diet. To amaze the driver at the very instant, the 2022 BMW M5 CS is 104 kg lighter as compared to the regular model; credit goes to the excessive use of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic used for the bonnet, front splitter, rear spoiler, mirror caps, engine cover, and rear diffuser. From the inside, you can easily spot carbon fibre on the M Carbon seats.
The rear bench is exchanged for yet another pair of captain seats that are separated by a major centre console. In addition, there is also a fixed armrest up front that replaces the opening type while saving some pounds meanwhile. Besides, a 12.3-inch touchscreen system handles the infotainment duties.
Highly efficient engine to give the ultimate speed
The next main area of improvement is its engine bay where the 2022 M5 CS houses the strongest M engine of its kind. The twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 is fettled with to churn out 626 hp. This is then efficiently handled by an eight-speed gearbox and the xDrive all-wheel-drive system with a rearward bias. With all these improvements, the 2022 M5 CS can rush from 0 to 100 kph in merely a smidgen over 3 seconds. Besides, the top speed is 306 kph and which is similar to a regular M5 if there is anything regular about a four-door sedan that is keeping up with hypercars on the track.
Truth be told, it will never be a proper CS model if it has not been able to change directions like a gazelle. The BMW M5 chassis is an amazing solid base to start with, however, BMW has tweaked it even further with returned bearing springs and more updated dampers to handle the lighter bodyweight. Besides, the special 20-inch wheels finished in gold are shod with sticky Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres for optimum grip.
As far as the price is concerned, the 2022 BMW M5 CS will be offered only for one year as a limited edition model. You can also expect prices to be north of Dhs 700,000 in the UAE.
