The BMW M4 CSL painted in Sapphire Black is again after we first noticed it at a seller in The Netherlands earlier this week. This time round, we get a extra immersive expertise courtesy of a walkaround video displaying the black beast from all angles, in and out. Not solely that, however we even have the chance to listen to the mighty roar of its inline-six engine.
Restricted to just one,000 items, the Competitors Sport Light-weight is in some good firm because it shares the seller’s showroom ground with its predecessor, the M3 E46 CSL. For good purpose, the video is all about essentially the most potent model of the G81 with its placing crimson accents and the traditional Motorsport emblem. The 2-seat coupe is a type of automobiles that appears quick standing nonetheless. We recognize BMW made the trouble to tweak the graphics within the digital instrument cluster to match the automobile’s actual coloration.
With this being a automobile for the Dutch market, we should level out The Netherlands is without doubt one of the most costly markets for the M4 CSL because it prices an eye-watering €215,243. An M4 Competitors retails for €132,644 in the identical nation the place high-performance automobiles are extraordinarily costly. For the sake of comparability, the M4 CSL is about €50,000 cheaper at residence in Germany the place the M4 Competitors will be had for about €38,000 lower than in The Netherlands.
As for the automobile itself, the black paint makes the outsized kidney grille much less obtrusive, whereas the built-in trunk lid spoiler harkens again to its predecessor we talked about earlier. This stealthy look fits the M4 CSL fairly properly, however BMW can be promoting the automobile in Frozen Brooklyn Gray or Alpine White.
Talking of colours, the video additionally exhibits the yellow daytime operating lights we additionally noticed on the M5 CS as a tribute to race automobiles of yesteryear. With the automobile being all black, the quite a few carbon fiber upgrades don’t stand out as a lot as they do on the M4 CSLs completed in both of the 2 different paints, due to this fact making it much less flashy.
With right now’s stricter emissions and sound rules within the European Union, we’re pleasantly shocked by how loud and aggressive the engine soundtrack is, even at idle.
