"CSL" has a high status for a BMW model. CSL stands for Coupe Sport Lightweight. All models that can use CLS are BMW classics. The M4 CSL of G82 is a new era CSL model. Although it has worked hard to reduce weight by 108.8 kg, its own weight is still over 1.6 tons, which is clearly not light enough. The release of BMW 3.0 CSL is best modern interpretation of CSL, which not only pays homage to classic "Batmobile" in appearance, but also features most powerful L6 "King of Cars" to date, and also provides only a manual transmission. A tribute to 50 year old E9 3.0 CSL.
There are almost no M4 elements on exterior, except for yellow laser headlights from CSL, front end is redesigned, and all parts are completely new, except for headlights. The large grille is very eye-catching and pays homage to design of 1972 E9 3.0 CSL.
The classic 3.0 CSL is also called "Batmobile". The 3.0 CSL's wide body isn't as prominent as E9's, cleverly using bumps to create an outward ejection effect, but it's actually a solid piece.
Also reproduced are fender flares of E9 3.0 CSL. The size is more civilized, of course, and carbon fiber is used to provide a degree of aerodynamic efficiency. The roof spoiler also appears on 3.0 CSL, both in design and position, has a high degree of restoration.
The side profile could better reflect effect of this wide body kit. The parts that seem stitched together at a later stage are really natural. The details, including rear fender, are just right, and classic BMW logo is used on the C-pillar. After all, a modern five-claw rim with a central locking mechanism, fitted with custom Michelin tires, with a 50th anniversary mark.
Only taillights of M4 CSL remain at rear of car. The design of entire back is very simple. The most obvious is huge Batmobile-like rear wing. Feeling of wholeness. The lower part of bumper is made of carbon fiber, with four exhaust systems on both sides, which is more impressive than M4 in terms of dynamics.
There is a competitive atmosphere in salon. The treatment of entire interior is basically same as previous M4 CSL. The use of a large number of suede and carbon fiber materials makes interior richer. Equally important as a limited edition model, however, is ubiquitous 3.0 CSL logo, and a white shift knob with BMW M tri-color accents is finishing touch to entire interior.
In terms of performance, maximum output of 3.0 CSL has been increased to 553 horsepower, most powerful of any current BMW L6 engine. The reason why it is considered most powerful is that maximum torque has been reduced by 100Nm, and maximum torque on 3.0 CSL is 550Nm. Foreign media speculate that this is due to carrying capacity of a manual transmission. Personally, I have reservations about this statement. Indeed, for a manual transmission, even a torque of 650 N m is not unbearable. Lowering torque is also unreasonable. component strength indicators. I personally assume 3.0 CSL is same as Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Blackseries. By reducing torque, overall power management is more controlled, more in line with performance of manual transmissions.
There's no doubt that this new car, commemorating 50th anniversary of birth of CSL, reflects value of limited edition car, inside and out, whether it's a 50-unit production or a custom look and power system. , this car This car is as special as its predecessors. But interestingly, it seems that 3.0 CSL did not implement a true Lightweight and no official data has been made public at this time. Based on current data, 3.0CSL is unlikely to lose any more weight, and being able to maintain weight of M4 CSL is a boon. For a model here, it doesn't seem to make much sense to obfuscate absolute performance. As models with a lot of collectible value, most of them can sit in garage for a long time.
