- bmw has announced specifications for the upcoming 2021 m5 cs.
- it'll make 626 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque from a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter v-8.
- the cs will be 154 pounds lighter than the 617-hp m5 competition, and it'll be revealed next month.
the 2021 bmw m5 sedan is getting a more powerful lightweight cs or "competition sport" model based on the 617-hp m5 competition that will join the existing m2, m3, and m4 cs in the competition sport lineup. it'll be 154 pounds lighter and the most powerful m5 to date, producing 626 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged v-8.
bmw hasn't shared full details on the car yet—more info is coming next month—but we now know it'll have bronze trim on the grille, wheels, and badging as well as motorsport-inspired yellow headlights. carbon-fiber bucket seats from the new m3 and m4 are also on board. the cs will come standard equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes with red calipers, and the bronze wheels will be wrapped in pirelli p zero corsa rubber in a staggered setup with 275-width front tires and 285-width rear tires.
the m5 cs will be the most powerful 5-series of all time, producing 626 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque from a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter v-8. we assume the m5 cs will have the same standard all-wheel-drive system with a rear-wheel-drive drift mode and eight-speed automatic transmission as in other models. in our testing, a 2019 m5 competition launched to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds on its way to a 10.9-second quarter mile at 130 mph, making it one of the quickest sedans we've ever tested.
we'll know more details about the most powerful m5 next month, and it should arrive in the u.s. by the end of 2021.
