The new BMW M4 CSL will hit the market in the first quarter of 2023, with a world premiere in just over a year. The German brand is already preparing one of the most radical models with which they will celebrate the 50th anniversary of BMW M. A coupe with such special characteristics as its design, of which we present this recreation.
In mid-September, when the BMW M4 was about to be unveiled, more radical-looking BMW M prototypes appeared, equipped with the original ‘M Performance Parts’ accessories, but also with even more gross aesthetics. A clear foretaste that the 2022 BMW M4 CSL was on its way.
And it is that the bulging arches of the wheels had been inflated more, a consequence of that the width of both axles had been increased. A fact that is exceptional and that does not fit with some accessories, since they do not imply modifications of that draft, so we were already before the first dawn of the M4 CSL that BMW will have ready in 2022. The deadlines indicate its presentation by the end of spring next year, with a more delicate aesthetic that we anticipate in this recreation, along with some of its novelties.
The new BMW M4 CSL 2022 will be one of the great novelties of the 50th anniversary of BMW M
The heir to the old M4 GTS is presented with a more radical image, with details painted in gilt bronze. In addition to the 21-inch forged alloy wheels from M Performance, the decorative inserts on the front side gills are added or the horizontal bars of the new grille will be decorated in this color, the distinctive detail in front of the M5 CS, together with the new M headlights debuted on this version of the sports saloon. The rear-view mirrors and the aerodynamic lip of the front bumper will be exposed carbon fiber, as will the roof panel and the slim spoiler on the boot lip.
Great use of lightweight material to cut as much weight as possible, inside and out, since the dynamic configuration of the frame and the aerodynamics will be special to experience extreme sensations on the track. The suspension will have new springs and shock absorbers, the steering will be revised and the brakes will be carbon-ceramic as standard to reduce unsprung masses.
The future BMW M4 CSL will be based on the rear-drive M Competition version, lightening weight but ensuring traction with an electronic differential. The German brand will apply changes to the six-cylinder 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine, contemplating an increase of 40 hp in maximum power to reach 550 hp. Enough increase to set a new record, which will be transferred to the asphalt via the 8-speed automatic transmission.
