It is officially announced that the debut of BMW M4 CSL Coupe will be held at the Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este, Italy, from May 20 to 22. For now, there are only two teasers of the new car, which will be the most extreme variant of BMW M4.
Judging by the pictures, outside this coupe will be distinguished by additional aerodynamic bodykit and new taillights (most likely, made by OLED technology) with the original pattern.
BMW hasn’t used the historical prefix CSL, which stands for “Coupe Sport Leichtbau” (“lightweight sports coupe”) for a long time. The last such model in 2003 was the BMW M3 CSL generation E46. Information about the new car is still unofficial. It is expected that the coupe will have an forced 3.0 biturbo engine (about 550 hp instead of 510 hp in the M4 Competition model), improved automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive, and curb weight will be reduced by about 100 kg. For example, the rear row of seats will be removed. More details will be available soon, and a BMW M3 CS sedan similar in concept is expected afterwards.
