BMW M3 CSL, year (July) 2003. Colour Sapphire black metallic with a ‘Amaretta Reflex’ (anthracite) fabric interior. The BMW M3 CSL was built in a limited series from June 2003 until December 2003. As a light weight edition of the M3 the CSL was given a carbon fibre roof and boot lid. Furthermore the suspension and the steering were adapted to give the CSL an even sportier handling. BMW Motorsport also up-rated the powerful 3.2 litre six cylinder engine to 360 bhp, 17 bhp more than the ‘standard’ M3. The BMW M3 CSL is just like all the ‘M’ models ‘Born on the circuit and at home on every road’. The M3 CSL sports an automatic six speed SMG gearbox with shift ‘paddles’ on the steering wheel.
