Arrow Bavarian S-class fighter anyone?

Even though I am a BMW fan all across the board I do have a soft spot for some of M-B products, specifically the S63-65. With the recent announcement that the BMW CS will be built I can't help but think that the title of "above the 7-series" will put it in S-class territory. 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

7er > S class.

i love the S class, my dad has one. but his friend has a 7er... omfg. and, shes italian, so she looks bad ass when she drives it. she let me drive it... i creamed myself. it had SO MUCH more personality compared to the S class.

CS is aimed at the CLS for sure. no doubt about it. and i think the CS is going to rip the dick off the CLS and make the CLS eat its own cumm.

CLS has the chasis and everything from E-class except the body. It might cost a little more to build different body but MB can sell the car much more expensive and making profit. So, I guess CLS stays in 5-series range like the E does.

the concept CS is designed to be positioned above the 7 series in the BMW model line up. Thus its not a CLS competitor....more likely to compete against AM Rapide and possible Porsche Panamera.

exactly....me and my dad's bmw salesman always tells us that the cs is going to be 95-100 or possibly more and will be aimed at the porsche panamera except it will be bigger and more luxo than the porsche.
