More powerful, and lighter than the Competition model, the 2022 BMW M5 CS Sedan is impressive by most measures.

The 2022 BMW M5 CS Sedan is here, and it packs a S63 4.4-liter M TwinPower turbo V8 that makes 627 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Yet it weighs 230 lbs less than the M5 Competition. All of that power is sent to the wheels via an eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel drive system.

According to BMW, it can run 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph. Altogether, this makes the 2022 BMW M5 CS Sedan the quickest and most powerful BMW production vehicle ever. As an added bonus to the new owner, the M Driver’s Package also includes a voucher for BMW driver training.

The 2022 BMW M5 CS is available in a standard Brands Hatch grey metallic paint with two optional BMW Individual colors. Those colors include: Frozen Brands Hatch grey metallic and Frozen Deep Green metallic.
