BMW M4 CSL limited coupe coming next year – DRIVE

So far, the most advanced “em-fourth” can be considered the execution BMW M4 Competition M Performance Parts with carbon package from the M Performance catalog, forged wheels and a lightweight titanium exhaust system.

A member of the Bimmer Post forum, citing insider data, assures that in July 2022 BMW will begin assembling a limited edition M4 CSL. And this information is encouraging, given that this abbreviation (Coupe Sport Leichtbau, that is, a lightweight sports coupe) was last used on serial Bavarian sports cars in 2004, on the model M3 CSL (concept 3.0 CSL Tribute 2015 does not count).

The two-door M3 CSL based on the E46 E46 with an inline-six 3.2 had increased efficiency (360 HP, +17 HP to the conventional M3 and 370 N • m, +5 N • m), while 110 kg lighter than her. The car also relied on a stiffer suspension and sharpened steering.

They talked about the return of the index in the BMW M back in 2017, but this did not happen in the last generation of the “um-fourth”. In 2020 itself fourth series passed into the second generation. The M version immediately appeared in the usual modification and variation of the Competition with an inline biturbo-six 3.0 (480 HP, 550 N • m and 510 HP, 650 N • m). We will build on them, outlining the parameters of the version, whose circulation will hardly exceed a thousand pieces.

In the first generation of the M4 coupe, the CSL version did not exist, but there was a limited edition CS with reduced weight and increased efficiency of the 3.0 engine (460 hp, +10 hp to the then Competition version, 600 N • m, +50 N • m).

The recipe should be similar to the previous M3 CSL or the ancestor of the line, the coupe 3.0 CSL 1973 – more lightweight body panels, less noise insulation, stiffer suspension, more power. New aerodynamic components are likely to appear. The de facto revived CSL will replace the most extreme M4 GTS last generation. In the successor, we foresee an increase in power by ten “horses” in comparison with the M4 Competition (up to 520) and a decrease in weight by 25-50 kg (up to 1650-1675 kg without a driver). The spread also depends on which gearbox and drive the engineers will take as a basis in this case.
