Legends Of The Autobahn West, scheduled for Saturday, August 14 during Monterey Car Week, is billed as the premier concours event for German cars, and will feature a wide array of the best from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. This year, in addition to the new M3 and M4 Competition xDrive models, the upcoming all-electric i4 and iX, and the exceptional Alpina B8 Gran Coupé, the fastest and most powerful BMW yet will also be displayed. This will be one of the first production examples of the M5 CS to reach the U.S., and Legends Of The Autobahn West is one of the first places to see the new super sedan in the flesh.
With 627 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque on tap courtesy of its S63 M twin-turbocharged V8, the M5 CS is the fastest and most powerful BMW of all time. Based on the M xDrive-equipped F90 M5 and its Competition derivative, the M5 CS is the undisputed performance leader of the lineup, and weighs 230 pounds less than its stablemates. The M5 CS has a top speed of 190 mph, can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in a breathtaking 2.9 seconds, and has numerous interior and exterior visual enhancements including model-specific paint options, lighting, trim, seats, upholstery, and more. Production of the M5 CS is limited to the 2022 model year, and the unit to be shown at Legends Of The Autobahn West is among the first to be imported to the U.S.
