The 2022 M5 CS isn’t just the ultimate version of BMW‘s sports sedan but some think it is one of the finest M models ever created. Powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 tuned to deliver 627 hp (468 kW / 636 PS) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque for a 0-60mph (96 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds, it’s the quickest and most powerful BMW to date. It’s pretty rare too as only 1,000 will ever be made. As such, seeing an extensively damaged one like this is particularly disheartening.
This M5 CS was recently listed by Copart in Pittsburgh and has clearly been involved in a very bad crash, leaving it with extensive damage and no doubt meaning it will be extremely expensive to repair.
It seems apparent that the M5 CS that is powered by a tuned twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 pushing out 627hp and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque
didn’t suffer from just a single impact but was either hit multiple times or hit something multiple times. The damage starts at the front end where the bumper and headlights have been completely removed and damage is visible on the hood. This could be because the fascia was destroyed in the crash or because it has been removed by the auction house. Whatever the case may be, it doesn’t look pretty.
Elsewhere, you will notice that both of the BMW’s front quarter panels are missing and that the driver’s side passenger door has been caved in and the window shattered.
Interior photos show that much of the cabin has been stripped. This includes the removal of the front and rear seats, the floor mats, and some parts on the transmission tunnel. Most of the dashboard, though, appears to have been left untouched.
The listing doesn’t state if the M5 CS still runs nor does it specify how many miles it has on the clock. It’s certainly possible that the car could be repaired but we wouldn’t be surprised if someone instead decided to strip it for parts and recoup their investment that way.
