Coupé, sport, lightweight construction. CSL: three letters that give every sports car fan goose bumps. The BMW M3 CSL is regarded as an icon and the crowning achievement of the third M3 series. What's more, the M3 CSL still occupies the same unrivalled position amongst the various models in that series as it did when it was first launched. With it, BMW M took everything the top echelons of motorsport had to offer in 2003 and once again raised the sports car to a new level.
RADICAL. LIGHT. AGILE.
By the time you’re sat behind the wheel, it becomes clear to every driver just how special the M3 CSL is. An even lower centre of gravity due to subtle lowering, shorter springs on the front axle, more powerful stabilisers, an increased camber at the front and rear wheels, a track width extended from 1,508 to 1,518 millimetres and the semi-slick tyres fitted as standard all ensure extremely sporty handling and unexpectedly rapid acceleration. Incidentally, anyone who presented a C racing licence when purchasing the M3 CSL could have its standard 250 km/h speed limit raised to 280 km/h.
