Yes similar to the M3/M4 Carbon Bucket seats. Not sure about the rear seats.

They should have increased the hp to 670 or so. 154 lbs weight loss is very solid.

Curious how it will fair against competing similar cars on a track, I understand the target audience are probably not the track rats or at least they have more than 1 car but for some of the few ones who want an all around do it all kind of car It could be a nice competitor to the amg's and RS cars.

Pointless car.

What's this going to cost? $130k? Lol who is buying this at that price point ?

This is going to sit around just like the 200+ M8's for sale. I don't get why BMW hasn't figured out no one wants to pay that kind of cash for a Bimmer.

They'd be better off making an $80/90k m3 estate/wagon

Yes, in fact, they were specifically mentioned by Markus Flasch in the Instagram video as "motorsport-style yellow headlights", which some of you may remember mirror the style seen on the G82 M4 GT3.

So while not a performance highlight, it's a styling highlight that will be specific to the M5 CS

Why is this awkward?
Because bmw dropped the weight and somehow thought it was a good idea to spend time on an M5 Cs w ccb's and more track focus while not telling us a word about the new G80 M3 that many will track because they awkwardly increased the weight and spent 0 effort on what mattered.

This is clearly the easier thing to do... money grab plain and simple.

Cool news... Like 1.2 years ago. So much for a pre-lci CS.

https://f90.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1663130

Wouldn't most of the weight be lost in the seats alone though? G80 life ain't easy at birth XD
