Late last year, BMW unveiled a limited edition of its new racing car, the BMW M4 CSL. It is a track monster, a powerful car, and everyone was waiting to see its capabilities on the most famous race track, the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The BMW M4 CSL is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder engine with 550 hp (404 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via an 8-speed Auto Steptronic transmission. It reaches 60 mph in 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h).
Testing on the Nürburgring Nordschleife was done by the German magazine Sport Auto. Behind the steering wheel was journalist and magazine test driver Christian Gebhardt, who completed the 20.6-kilometer course in seven minutes and 17,080 seconds. As a reminder, on the same track last year BMW team driver Jörg Weidinger achieved a lap time of 7:15.677. This means that the M4 CSL currently holds the best lap time at the Nürburgring among BMW’s road-legal models.
The car will be produced in only 1,000 copies. Now the question is, what answer is the BMW 3.0 CSL preparing, which will be produced in 50 copies, in honor of its 50th birthday.
BMW 3.0 CSL is powered by a 3.0 L inline-six engine with 560 hp (412 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.
