At the moment, many fans of the German brand have the impression that engineers are paying all their attention to SUVs. The brand has announced several new cars in this class, but work is underway on classic sedans. Recently, the M235i Gran Coupe has appeared on sale, which will compete with the Audi S3 Sedan and AMG CLA 35. There is also an M5 Competition in the lineup, but the BMW M5 CS model may be released in 2020. It is already being tested, the experts were able to make first impressions of it.
The car received recognizable body elements, but in general it has a classic design. The main novelties are hidden from the eyes of strangers. The engineers managed to make the suspension even more rigid, improving the handling and stability of the chassis. In addition, for a long time, it was possible to reduce the mass, which has been constantly growing for several years. The dynamic performance has also been improved. Under the hood is the 4.4-liter V8 turbocharged power unit familiar from previous cars, but its power will be raised to 650 horsepower, increasing performance by 33 units. The downside of the novelty is only the sound that has changed for the worse, but this happened due to the installation of a new particulate filter aimed at reducing harmful emissions.
The exact date of the debut on the market of the BMW M5 CS is not yet known. It is possible that the sports car will be produced in a limited edition, 32cars reports.
