Following a leak earlier today, BMW has officially unveiled the 2022 M5 CS.
Billed as the “quickest and most powerful production BMW car ever,” the M5 CS features a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine that has been tuned to produce 627 hp (468 kW / 636 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque.
The engine is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a rear-biased all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds faster than the M5 Competition. If you keep your foot planted on the accelerator, the car will eventually hit a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
Sticking with the performance theme, the M5 CS features an Active M Differential and a selectable all-wheel drive system just like the standard M5. The latter has 4WD and 4WD Sport modes as well as 2WD mode for tire smoking antics.
