2003 BMW M3 E46 CSL COUPE SMG (MY04)
One of only 27 CSL's to be delivered in Australia, a very rare and highly collectable BMW.
Presenting in Silver Grey metallic with grey alcantara interior trim, one of only two colours available, the other Black and a total production of only 1383 units worldwide.
Released in 2000, BMW’s third generation M3 was the last of the series powered by the classic in-line naturally aspirated six, the 3.2-litre unit offering the highest specific output of any naturally-aspirated car on the market at that time. With individual throttle-bodies, VANOS variable valve-timing, forged steel conrods and crankshaft plus graphite-coated cast aluminium pistons, the S54 motor gave almost instant response and revved all the way to the 8200rpm cut-out, developing a peak 252kW at 7900rpm.
Performance was quoted at the time of 0-100kph in 5.0 secs and a top speed near 250kph.
This vehicle follows the heritage of the legendary BMW 3.0 Litre CSL from the early 70's and so features a lot of light weight material to reduce body weight, as well as suspension and engine enhancements. At some 110kgs less than a standard E46 M3, it has every chance to out perform its brothers and competitors.
M engineers went through the CSL from back to front, using a thinner-walled exhaust system, aluminium rear control arms, thinner rear glass, a lighter boot lid (with elegantly-incorporated up-sweep to reduce lift) and fixed-back glass fibre front sports seats.
The use of carbon fibre as a light a very strong material features in the roof, frontal area and interior centre console and door trims.
The final touch features special light weight CSL 19" alloys wheels and flared arches to give the whole car a very competition stance.
A rare and collectable vehicle that has been kept in excellent order throughout its 18 years of use.
