BMW M3 CSL gathering

BMW M3 CSL gathering
On the eve of its tenth birthday, fifty BMW M3 CSL owners from all over Europe to mark the occasion at the BMW Welt in Munich.

For many BMW enthusiasts the hardcore E46 M3 CSL (Coupé Sport Leichtbau) is the ultimate M model, with Sport Auto taking one around the Nurburgring in 7:50 minutes – two seconds quicker than the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4.

The deletion of electric seats, navigation system, air conditioning and stereo system, and the use of carbon fibre in such areas as the roof, front bumper and rear diffuser, along with a plastic boot lid and cardboard boot floor, sees the CSL undercuts its regular sibling by 110 kg (240 lb), while the slightly improved output of 265 kW (360 hp) and 370 Nm is thanks to an optimized carbon airbox, revised software, camshafts and exhaust valves.
