First M4 CSL Looks Dashing in Sapphire Black

Check-out the dashing M4 CSL as the owner picked up his new car and drove it home. Spending six figures on a shiny new car might also give you the privilege of asking the automaker to provide a special delivery. BMW  delivered this stealthy coupe straight from BMW Welt in Munich.

BMW’s M4 CSL production began at the end of July, and customers may expect to get their vehicles shortly. Alpine White and Frozen Brooklyn Gray are the additional exterior colours available to the world’s 1,000 purchasers. The latter was utilised extensively for the public debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed and in the accompanying press photos.

BMW’s first CSL since the M3 E46 CSL in 2003 is a two-seat, rear-wheel-drive M4 Competition with plenty of carbon fibre to save weight (220 pounds). It has a 40-horsepower advantage over the previous top-of-the-line M4 model and the quickest Nurburgring lap time of any production BMW at 7 minutes and 20 seconds. Some fans might not like the lack of a six-speed manual transmission, as BMW will soon offer something even more track-focused for those who can afford it. The M4 CSL will be taken to the next level with the release of a new 3.0 CSL that includes a clutch pedal and around 10 more hp. 

BMW wants the M4 CSL to get all the attention, therefore the 3.0 CSL won’t be released until the end of the year. In honour of its 50th year in business, the M division is releasing a plethora of exciting new items, including the recently unveiled M3 Touring and the forthcoming new M2. Although a plug-in hybrid SUV isn’t as desirable as a low-slung coupe or a quick waggon, the XM can now be added to the same list.
