It’s only with the benefit of hindsight you can see how truly special the E46 M3 CSL was and still is. It’s only when you fit yourself snuggly in the Recaro seats and place your hands on the alcantara trimmed wheel do you get an inkling of what a beast this car still is.
The modifications required to earn an M3 a CSL badge are legion. Alongside that engine and carbon air box comes carbon-fibre roof, carbob-fibre bumpers, revised suspension, modified brakes, quicker steering and a paddle-operated gearbox capable of swapping one cog for another in 0.08sec or, to put it another way, three times faster than you. Inside, racing seats ensure your body can withstand 1.5G of lateral acceleration without depositing you on your passenger.
The CSL is one of the most hard-core supercars ever sold. Various buttons allow you to choose the speed of the gear change, sharpen the throttle response, disable the stability control or programme it for the race track. Like many things that are bad for you, the CSL is addictive — it possesses a focus that, of its ilk, only Porsche’s more expensive GT3 would recognise. Its non-negotiable demand for your undivided attention can make every departure an occasion, every journey an adventure, every arrival an event. It’s also rare, beautiful and FANTASTICALLY engineered.
This particular car will suit the most fastidious of collectors. With no evidence of track day use whatsoever and an impeccable service history with servicing only ever carried out by BMW main agents. The paintwork is original to the car with only the carbon front bumper having been previously painted.
