The car’s debut is planned for only a few hours from now.
No one is surprised that the “leak” has occurred.
BMW M CEO Markus Flasch gave us a sneak peek late last year.
As with any other big reveal, images and details will inevitably leak before the actual premiere. And this is how we have these few pictures of the new 2021 BMW M5 CS. The official details will be shared in a few hours however we can already say with certainty that the new M5 is a stunner.
The M5 features some of the new M3 and M4’s highlights, specifically the bonnet with its indents and creases, as pointed out by the BMWBlog. The comparisons end there, thankfully. The highlights, many of which were pointed out by BMW M CEO Markus Flasch in late December, are easier to appreciate now that we can see the entire car.
The Gold-Bronze accents are upscale touches that will mark this new M5’s place in history. We’ve been staring at the pictures for a little while now and we can honestly say that this M5 is the most visually-sorted M5 since the E39 and the best-looking M car available at BMW today. The fenders, the bumpers, rear spoiler, bumper, and diffuser all tell a tale of speed but in a wonderfully subtle way. This is very much like BMW M cars of old.
We already know that the M5 CS will tip the scale at more than 70kg (155lbs) less than the regular M5 and be more powerful. With up to 635-horsepower and carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, it will be quite a road and track beast.
