BMW plans to launch the M4 CSL, which will be designed primarily for the track. When the latest generation of the M4 (code G82) was introduced in 2020, the big kidney grilles in particular sparked much debate. Of course, they will also be available in the CSL (coupe, sports and lightweight) modification – but with a slightly different design. We also expect a new light signature and a new front bumper with a large splitter. There will be a new spoiler at the rear, as well as another bumper, in which two centrally located exhaust pipes will be integrated. A lot of carbon will be used to reduce weight, and lighter wheels will play a role in that. Serial carbon brakes will be installed behind them.
Power at least 550 hp
Of course, there will be more than exciting changes to the body. And since the M4 Competition has 510 hp, the 3.0-liter in-line "six" in the most powerful M4 will probably generate no less than 550 "horses." In order to reduce the weight, the drive will probably be rear wheel only. The start of sales should be given in 2022.
Auto Trendy’s take:
The BMW M4 CSL edition, another car for the petrol heads which is also designed for the track. We, at Auto Trendy, believe that this might be the reason for the car to be with an internal combustion engine under the hood. What is more, building cars with fossil fuel engines for the track might be another trend to procrastinate the introduction of electric drivelines in the sports car sector. We must wait and see, and you should stay tuned!
