The 2023 model BMW M4 CSL has finally been introduced. Only 1,000 units of the light, high-powered coupe will be produced.
The 2023 model BMW M4 CSL, which has been eagerly awaited by car enthusiasts, has finally been introduced. In lightweight, high-powered coupe form, the car will be BMW’s last M model to go on sale as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
The new M4 CSL is a special model with which BMW plans to produce only 1,000 units worldwide. The M4 CSL has made improvements to the M4 Competition model, making it the fastest BMW ever to complete the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife track. The M4 CSL took just 7 minutes and 20 seconds to complete one lap.
Here are the features of the BMW M4 CSL
From a design point of view, the design team, which did not stray too far from the classic BMW M4 image, made most of the visual improvements based on performance. The front of the car shows us that BMW has optimized the design to create maximum cooling potential and downforce. The new M4 features high and low-temperature cooling elements to ensure that various components of the car maintain optimum operating temperatures during street and track driving.
The BMW M4 CSL uses the brand’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six engine. The CSL has 543 horsepower, an increase of 40 horsepower over the M4 Competition. The engine pumps out 649 Nm of torque, available from 2,750 to 5,950 rpm.
BMW directs the power of the CSL to the rear wheels via the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. The transmission can be switched to manual mode by tapping the carbon fiber paddles behind the steering wheel. BMW has announced that the M4 CSL will reach 96 kilometers per hour in 3.6 seconds. It takes only 10.5 seconds to reach 193 km/h.
Inside the M4 CLS there are only two seats. But these are no ordinary BMW seats. BMW has specially designed the M Carbon fully retractable seats with racing in mind. The seats do not have features such as lumbar support or heating. However, instead of the standard seats in the car, BMW also offers seats with heating and lumbar support as an option, free of charge.
The car’s braking power comes from six-piston, fixed-caliper 15.7-inch front brakes and single-piston, 15.0-inch rear brakes with floating caliper. These brakes are housed in matt black M light-alloy wheels available in 21 and 22-inch options , wrapped by BMW with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires.
