[Video] BMW M4 CSL Runs at Full Speed in Autobahn

The M4 CSL is not just about setting a new record for the fastest production car. However, an electronically governed 191 mph (307 km/h) is more than respectable for a vehicle whose primary purpose is to be quick around a track. It has the record for the fastest lap time around the Nürburgring by a production BMW, clocking in at 7 minutes and 20.207 seconds. Nevertheless, people are interested in seeing high-performance vehicles driven to their limits in the YouTube era.

Since AutoTopNL has access to the newest gadgets, it can provide such material. His turn had finally come to pilot one of only 1,000 BMW M4 CSLs that will ever exist worldwide. Metallic Frozen Brooklyn Grey paint is standard, as seen in all promotional photos and at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, but clients can also choose between Alpine White and Sapphire Black. On an open stretch of the Autobahn, the two-seat Competition Sport Lightweight was pushed to its limits.

It can go from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (62 miles per hour) in 6.84 seconds, making it almost as fast as the M8 Gran Coupe, which has a more robust and expansive V8 engine. The top speed of the M4 CSL was 192 miles per hour (309 kilometres per hour), slightly faster than BMW claims. While technology has improved, current speedometers sometimes occasionally exaggerate speeds. The Munich-based brand claims the M4 CSL can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 10.7 seconds, or 1.8 seconds quicker than the M4 Competition Coupe upon which it is based.

The driver, also the proud owner of an M3 G80 acknowledges that the car’s suspension is noticeably firmer than that of an M4 Competition. He goes on to gush over the car’s carbon ceramic brakes, saying they’re on par with those of an M5 CS but don’t add any unnecessary bulk. Remember that BMW M engineers shaved 100 pounds off the M4C and boosted its power by 40. Eventually, in 2023, BMW will use the CS badge again, this time on both the M4 and the M3. In the meantime, the 3.0 CSL, a throwback among M’s performance coupes, will include a manual transmission and increased output.
