2. Model History

The BMW M3 Made Its First Appearance In The October Of 2000 At The Geneva Motor Show And Was Designed & Built In The M Department Of The Regensburg Factory In Germany. This Fabulous New Model Was To Take Over From The Much Loved E36 Model That Had Served The Motor Manufacture Well, But Like Many New Cars Would Offer A New Introduction Of Extreme Power, Mixed With Unrivalled Technology And Stunning Design Detail To The Interior & Exterior. The Third Generation M3 Was Fitted With The Three Point Two S54 Engine And Also Came With The Option Of The SMG II Automatic Transmission, With This Perfect Collaboration Of Both Box And Engine Offering Clients The Ultimate In High End Performance With A Staggeringly Quick Gear Change, All Of Which Made This Model One Of The Most Successful Vehicles And Still Today Is Viewed As Being An Important And Integral Part Of The Company's History. After The First Steady Influx Of Eager Buyers Venturing Into BMW Dealerships During The First Four Years, The M Division Wanted To Offer An Improved Limited Edition Onto The Scene, So With This The BMW E46 M3 CSL Was Created And With Just 1383 Vehicles To Be Produced Worldwide, With Only 422 Of These Cars Destined For The UK With An Unequal Split Of 316 Silver Grey Examples And Just 106 Black Sapphire Vehicles, Rarity Was The Name Of The Game And Still If We Fast Forward To 2018, These Stunning Powerhouses Are Now Acquired By Private Collections/Investors From All Corners Of The Globe. The CSL Or Coupe Sport Lightweight Gave A Combination Of Intelligent Construction And Formula One Technology, Which Gave Irrepressible Power, Fascinating Agility And Extra-Ordinary Precision, A Concept Which Had Bought Numerous Victories For The Legendary BMW CSL During The Early Seventies In The Touring Car Races. The Exterior Design Offered Subtle Detailing To Include A Large Intake Air Opening On The Left Side Of The Front Apron, A Carbon Fibre Roof, An Integrated Sculptured Boot Spoiler, A Thinner Glass Rear Screen, Distinctive 19" Lightweight Cast BBS Alloy Wheels, Various Further Carbon Fibre Valances And An All New Lightweight Interior With Unique Alcantara Glass Fibre Reinforced Hard Shelled Bucket Seats, Which Reduced Weight From The Original M3 By 110 kg. Power Was Also Increased From 343 BHP To An Astonishing 355 BHP, Thanks To The Use Of Sharper Profile Camshafts, A Bigger Air Intake With Carbon Fibre Manifold, A Refinement Of The Exhaust Manifold And Slightly Different Exhaust Valves, Which Meant 0-62 MPH Could Be Achieved In 4.9 Seconds And Then Would Further Climb To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 155MPH. The BMW Factory Tested Their Car Prior To Launch At The Nurburgring Nordschieife Track, Which Was Able To Complete A Lap In A Remarkable Time Of Just Eight Minutes Flat And Those Familiar With One Of The Worlds Toughest Race Tracks, Should Fully Understand This Impressive Time And The Astonishing Efforts Made By The M Division In Order To Get This Sensational Lap Figure.

The CSL Myth: Coupe - Sport - Lightweight.....
