Here we have the highly collectable BMW M3 CSL. Its finished in Metallic Silver with the Black Suede Race Seats. Its travelled just 52,441 miles its last owner garaging the car for the last 7 years.
This CSL is truly excellent throughout, the essential running In service was carried out at 1,301 miles followed by visits to the workshop at 12,859, 23,402, 33,416, 42,110, 44,005, 44,781, 47,745 and 52,413 Miles. It is complete with a large history file, It has the must have Air-Conditioning, BMW ICE , Bi Xenon’s and Top Tint Screen options.
This example also benefits from having the well known Subframe work completed by BMW in September 2013 at 44,500 Miles.
I guess that If you are reading this advert you know what a very special car the CSL is, but if not BMW took a regular M3 and started an aggressive weight reduction campaign, more power and sharper handling characteristics than the standard M3, courtesy of larger anti-roll bars, stiffer spring rates with wider front and rear track and larger cross drilled bakes. From the exterior, the CSL is distinguished from its standard sibling with a different wheel design manufactured In magnesium , larger integrated rear spoiler and a large air intake hole on the left side of the front bumper. Weight loss was achieved through use of a Carbon Fibre roof, trunk lid made of sheet moulding compound, lighter exhaust system, thinner rear glass, carbon fiber front bumper, rear diffuser, interior door panels and console, lightweight racing seats, removed sound insulation, lightweight boot floor cover and the removal of side air bags. The M3 CSL’s engine differs from the M3 with different camshafts, valves, carbon-fibre intake manifold and alpha-N engine management system and the M division coxed 360 bhp from this benchmark powerplant.
Just 422 RHD models were produced DVLA show just 175 Registered in 2017 (many of which have left the UK to go to collectors) The CSL as acknowledged by Evo magazine and many others as one of the true greats alongside the 360 Stradale and Porsche GT3 models yet with the versatility of a 4 seat saloon!
“It is, by any yardstick a quite astonishing powertrain: and raw performance data doesn’t properly convey how much more it offers over the standard car. Working in conjunction with a modified SMG paddle-shift gearbox, it will happily knock out the 4.8sec 0-60mph and 10.9sec 0-100mph runs we recorded all day.
In operation, the combination of thinner exhaust walls, enormous air intake, optimized exhaust valves and revised camshafts perfectly amplifies the engine’s finest characteristics: instant throttle response and straight-six music. The noise is something else – as loud as it is delectable – trumpeted up through the single intake nostril and snarled out of the bespoke carbon airbox inside the engine bay.
On a dry road it is nearly impossible to reach a point of under- or oversteer, but factor in some precipitation and that situation changes. But then, road cars just don’t come much more exciting than this”
