For the record, BMW's 'Competition' trims are the spruced-up versions of the regular models, while the 'CS' versions are a different ballgame altogether with their ground-breaking performance.

The new BMW M5 CS will be driven the same 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol which is now tuned to deliver a higher 635 hp of maximum power. While the bump of 10 hp may not seem enough, the car has also gone through a weight reduction treatment as it now stands lighter by 70 kg, aiding in overall power-to-weight figures. The transmission option includes an 8-speed M Steptronic automatic unit and there is BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system which allows for 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD drive modes.

While the teaser shows only limited info but it does reveal some interesting bits such as the golden-colored forged aluminium wheels sporting carbon-ceramic brakes and red calipers. In addition to that, the car could also be seen sporting some more gold-bronze accents surrounding the iconic kidney grille. It also sports fresh-looking motorsport-style yellow headlights and its new black body shade contrasts its gold-bronze accents.

While the official performance figures aren't known at the moment, it will be quicker than the current M5 Performance which has a 0-100kph sprint timing of 3.3 seconds.
