THE NEW BMW M4 CSL HAS BEEN REVEALED AS PART OF THE BRAND’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS BLENDING OLD-SCHOOL RACING PASSION WITH INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY.
With its next-level power and lightweight design, two-seater configuration and model-specific chassis upgrades, the special edition BMW M4 CSL has track driving as its raison d’être. The genes it shares with its competition-spec sibling, the BMW M4 GT3, are also reflected in its performance attributes. CSL stands for ‘Competition, Sport, Lightweight’, referencing the critical role of weight-minimised design in achieving success in motor sport.
In test runs on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife circuit, the vehicle posted the fastest lap times ever for a series-produced BMW car, with acceleration figures of 3.7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and 10.7 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 200 km/h.
The body is painted in the exclusive Frozen Brooklyn Grey metallic as standard with exposed carbon-fibre surfaces and red accents.
The optionally available BMW Laserlight headlights illuminate in yellow, bringing to mind the retro look of successful GT racing cars. The LED rear lights are equipped as standard with technology making its debut in a series-produced car.
The model-specific power unit is based on the same highrevving, six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology found in the BMW M4 GT3 racing car. Its substantial performance reserves enabled a major hike in power without concessions in terms of stability or durability.
Model-specific equipment features give the BMW M4 CSL a distinctive balance between sports car purism and everyday usability. ✤
