Spy Shots: BMW M3 CSL hits up the Nurburgring?


Latest spy shots from the Nurburgring in Germany show a very mysterious BMW M3 circling the Nordschleife track, hinting that BMW may be working on a new CSL-badged M3. The spy shots show a lower front spoiler, wider tracks, new wheels and tires plus a huge rear spoiler.

Sources suggest that the new high-performance model could shed over 100kg over the standard BMW M3 with thinner glass and a carbon fiber bonnet. Power will come from a 4.0L V8 wit new valves, a carbon fiber airbox, larger intakes that will take output up to 470-hp.

BMW has previously denied working on a new M3 CSL; however, the Munich automaker is unlikely to let the Audi RS5 hit the market without a true competitor.
