Compared to the M4 Competition Coupé, the M4 CSL is 100 kg lighter thanks to carbon bucket seats (-24 kg), the removal of the rear bench seat (21 kg), carbon ceramic brakes, but also special alloy rims and struts (-21 kg), minimal use of sound deadening materials (-15 kg), use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic components for the roof, bonnet and trunk (-11 kg), titanium muffler (-4 kg), not to mention several other modifications affecting the grille, taillights, floor mats and removal of automatic air conditioning (-4 kg).
Under the bonnet, the engine of the BMW M4 GT3 benefits from an increase in the boost pressure of the two turbochargers from 1.7 to 2.1 bar.
It delivers a maximum torque of 650 Nm from 2750 to 5950 rpm, and a maximum power of 550 hp at 6250 rpm.
Everything is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed M Steptronic gearbox with Drivelogic.
Obviously, the running gear (adaptive M suspension) has also been extensively modified for greater efficiency, while the M Traction Control function allows the driver to define individual intervention thresholds for limiting wheel spin.
During its testing on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring, the BMW M4 CSL set the fastest lap time for a production BMW Group car (7 min and 20.207 s).
Its acceleration capabilities (3.7 s from 0 to 100 km/h and 10.7 s from 0 to 200 km/h) are just as impressive.
The new BMW M4 CSL will have its world premiere at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este (May 20-22, 2022).
This special edition will be produced in a limited series of 1,000 copies.
