BMW announced the quickest and most powerful production BMW car ever, the 2022 M5 CS Sedan. Available only for the 2022 model year, the new limited production super sedan builds on the immensely capable M5, itself recently updated for model year 2021, by delivering more power, greater performance, lighter weight and exclusive interior appointments making the new BMW M5 CS truly a one-of-a-kind vehicle in its class. For the first time, the M5 features a four-passenger seating configuration with M carbon sport seats up front and two individual bucket seats for the rear passengers. The combination of increased power and a rigorous weight-reduction program through the extensive use of CFRP materials improves the power-to-weight ratio to elevate the performance and dynamics further enhancing the M5’s already very high street and track capabilities.
The BMW M5 CS builds on the very high dynamic abilities of the M5 Competition Package’s chassis and suspension tuning. This means stiffer engine mounts (5,139 lb/in vs. 3,312 lb/in) than the standard M5 Sedan, 10% firmer springs, 0.2-inch lower ride height, increased front negative camber, a firmer rear anti-roll bar and tow-link ball-joint mounts. The M5 CS receives further spring and Dynamic Damper Control tuning over the M5 Competition to take advantage of the lower vehicle weight and of the optionally available (no-cost) Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Standard mixed-size non-runflat high-performance tires measure 275/35R20 at the front and 285/35R20 at the rear and are fitted to Gold Bronze 20-inch M forged Y-spoke wheels – 9.5 J x 20 in front and 10.5 J x 20 in the rear. Pirelli P Zero Corsa high-performance tires are available as a no cost option and make full use of the M5 CS’s enhanced handling capabilities for those looking to experience their new sedan in a closed track environment.
Pressing the SETUP button positioned takes the driver to the 12.3-inch central display’s menu for programming an individual configuration for the powertrain and chassis options. This allows drivers to tailor the car’s setup to the driving situation at hand and to their personal preferences. Simplified operation using the touchscreen display or iDrive Controller makes it easy to choose different settings for the engine, suspension, steering and M xDrive system.The standard Dynamic Damper Control and M Servotronic steering offer a choice of electronic drive modes – COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+. COMFORT focuses on everyday usability combined with standout dynamics. SPORT mode reduces wheel and body movements to create more direct contact with the road, but still has sufficient comfort dialed in. This setting is suited perfectly to sporty driving on twisty roads and offers the ideal handling balance for laps of the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife. SPORT+ mode maximizes dynamic performance on smooth asphalt allowing the driver to sense the connection with the road surface acutely, making it the best setting for dedicated closed racetracks.
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 rear-biased M xDrive all-wheel drive system distributes the available 553 ft-lbs. of torque between front and rear axles via an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch while the Active M Differential further optimizes power between the rear wheels for maximum grip and lateral dynamics. The eight-speed M Steptronic transmission provides extraordinarily short shift times and fast, precise responses to every input of the accelerator. The Drivelogic switch on the gear selector lever allows three modes – efficient, sport or track with extremely rapid gearshifts. A transmission oil cooler ensures the transmission operates within its best temperature range even when the car is put through its paces on a closed track.
The S63 4.4-liter M TwinPower turbo V8 has been tuned to deliver 627 hp at 6,000 rpm, an increase of 10 hp over the Competition model. The torque band delivers its full 553 lb.-ft from 1,800 to 5,950 rpm, 90 rpm wider than the M5 Competition. The eight-cylinder’s engine redline is 7,200 rpm. The high-pressure direct fuel injection ensures precise fuel atomization and fast engine response. The liquid-to-air intercooling for the two turbochargers and oil system with two pumps make sure that the M5 CS is as competent on track as it is on the street. Combined with the reduced vehicle weight, the high levels of power and torque and working through the 8-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic and the M xDrive all-wheel drive system, the BMW M5 CS reaches 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, 0.2 seconds quicker than the M5 Competition model. Top speed with the standard M Driver’s Package is 190 mph. The M Driver’s Package also includes a voucher for BMW driver training.
