Let's hope an S63 competeing M variant shows up!!! plus if BMW cram the same amount of toys in the CS as M-B do in the S I will be hooked.
What do you guys think the CS will turn into a luxo only saloon or an AMG pounder with a touch of class?
I wouldn't say it puts it in the S-class because the 7-series is right now as big if not bigger (the LI) then the S-class and handles better. What it does give up is straightline performance to the AMG variants of the S-class. Even then, the 760 LI is close to the S63.......I think the CS concept is more aimed at competing with the CLS, then the S. Just my .02 though cause I don't work at BMW
