A Spicier BMW M5 Is On The Way For An Early 2021 Debut

Aside from more power and weight reduction, the M5 CS will also sport a stylish exterior


  • 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine to produce 635PS, 10PS more than the M5 Competition.

  • Will be 70kg lighter than the trim below it.

  • Gets gold-bronze accents all over, motorsport-style yellow headlights and forged aluminum wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes.

  • Cabin will receive carbon bucket seats from the M3 and M4.

  • Expect the facelifted M5 Competition in India well after the facelifted 5 Series’ launch in 2021.

The BMW M5 Competition is already quite the zippy sedan with a mighty 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine that develops 625PS and 750Nm. 0-100kmph is achieved in just 3.3 seconds while topping out at 305kmph. But BMW has revealed that there’s more room for improvement and has teased the spicier M5 CS for a 2021 debut.

A short teaser video reveals that the M5 CS’ 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine will now push 635PS of grunt, 10PS more than the M5 Competition. What’s more is that it’ll get a weight reduction of 70kg which should certainly aid its handling prowess. Expect the 8-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel-drive system with a choice of a 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD drive modes to be retained.


While the exteriors have yet to be fully revealed, the teaser video showcases some nice add-ons like gold-bronze accents around the kidney grille, motorsport-style yellow headlights, forged aluminium wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes and red calipers. The M5 CS is also shod in a nice black body shade that complements the gold-bronze accents.

Cabin shots are yet to be revealed, but it's been revealed that the M5 CS will get carbon bucket seats like the M3 and M4. Expect the rest of the cabin to remain relatively similar aside from ‘CS’ badging all over.

The BMW M5 CS will make its global debut around January 2021 with a launch expected soon after. There is currently no word as to when BMW will bring the facelifted M5 to India, but is likely to show up only after the carmaker brings the standard 5 series facelift to the country next year.
