BMW E46 M3 and CSL version Versus Porsche 911 and GT2. post #1  quote:



Following BMW's production of its fantastic E46 M3 and it being able to beat anything in the field [including the long reigning 911], they decided to build a CSL version [Coupe Sport Lightweight]. This is a lighter, faster and overall a more aggressive version of the original M3.
For years BMW hasn't built a CSL version of one of its models until now. The last model to have the honour of such a title wasnt even an 'M' car. It was the 3.0 CS. The 3.0 CSL was a racing version of the 3.0 CS that featured wider tires, suspension tweaks and lightweight body components. The new E46 M3 CSL will have just the same tweeks and add-ons, but better one. Mwahahahaha.
The beauty of low curb weight, lots of power and a balanced chassis cannot be under-estimated by those whose televisions are constantly tuned to Speedvision and who would rather challenge themselves in an autocross event than watch a football game in some crowded stadium.
These new modifications mean that BMW [with the porsche Boxster and 911 out of the way thanks to the standard M3] can now compete with Porsche's 911 GT2 [arguably one of Stuttgart?s finest creations some say...but not me].

Following the prototype of the CSL M3, BMW took it for a few laps round Gremanys [and if not the worlds] most demanding circuit: The Nurburg ring racetrack. It took UNDER 8 minutes, a time that beat the already impressive production M3 by nearly 30 seconds. Or, to put it into highly technical racing terms, the standard M3 got caned [and so did the Porsche 911 GT2 might i add].

So ladies and Gentlemen, those of you who are so in love with your yun-off-the-mill 911's and GT2's, just think: M3 CSL + Nurenburg ring = Under 8 mins and bye bye reign of Posche.

Regards.
