BMW’s legendary M division celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. To celebrate its longevity, the performance division of BMW released incredible cars, like the XM, M’s first exclusive car since the M1 supercar, the 3.0 CSL that revived one of the earliest hallmarks of M’s prowess, and the M4 CSL, a car that took the baton from the E46 BMW M3 CSL by introducing weight saving measures and increased power that take an already-formidable performance car into being a certified and brutal track weapon.
What’s the difference between the M4 and M4 CSL?
BMW made the engine of the M4 CSL more powerful than the standard M4 in the name of 40 additional horsepower, bringing its total power figure to 543. In addition, the rear seats are removed, components are replaced with carbon fiber, and other measures are taken to bring the weight down by a total of 240 pounds. It’s able to get from 0-60 in just 3.6 seconds, reach 191 mph, and lap the Nordschleife in just 7 minutes and 20 seconds, the fastest of any BMW.
How many BMW M4 CSLs will be made?
Only 1,000 of them will be made, and each, priced at $139,000, is a performance icon.
What does CSL stand for?
An important designation in the BMW M tapestry, CSL indicates a high level of track-focused performance, standing for Competition Sport Lightweight.
Why should you buy a BMW M4 CSL?
As a complete package, the BMW M4 CSL is one of the most track capable and performance-perfected cars that the brand has ever made, and in addition, it is a chapter in the very long legacy of powerful and world-changing CSL cars from BMW. In addition, with only 1,000 being made, it will undoubtedly cement its place as an icon in the performance and collector car world.
