BMW has just unveiled its most powerful production car yet: the 2022 M5 CS supersedan.

Carrying a hefty 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, the 2022 CS variant is not only more powerful than the current M5 Competition model but also significantly lighter. The engine can push a staggering 627 horsepower, 10 horsepower above its sibling, and weighs 230 pounds less thanks to a whole host of carbon fiber bodywork, which translates to a five percent decrease in weight. Combined together, the new specs can churn out a 0-60 mph time of just 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 190 mph.

On the inside, the CS comes in a standard four-passenger configuration but all seats have been swapped out with M carbon sports seats up front and bucket seats in the back, emphasizing the car’s performance-driven design. All four are heated and power-adjustable and feature a map of the Nürburgring Nordschleife track embroidered on the headrests.

BMW will begin deliveries for the M5 CS in the second half of this year, and prices start at $142,995 USD. Unfortunately, the German automaker says it’ll only be producing this model for a year, so those interested should definitely act fast.
