The M3 CSL needs very little introduction. The CSL is one of those rare cars where the driving experience matches the expectation, a car that is not just useable but highly addictive, with subtle looks which almost play down the anything-but-subtle performance. The noise of the 360 bhp engine greedily sucking air into the carbon fibre intake has become the stuff of legends – for those who are in any doubt of this car’s appeal, one drive will usually suffice. BMW threw huge amounts of technology at the CSL – this was no run out model or trim-based special edition. Bringing together everything they were learning on the Formula One circuits, BMW created a car that arguably has never been equalled in terms of all round ability and appeal. Using state of the art weight saving technology the team at BMW M shaved a colossal 110 kilos from the standard M3 which, let’s remember, was already hugely capable – and not heavy at all. Adapting the exhaust, steering, brakes, suspension, gearbox and engine management, the CSL actually feels very little like the standard M3 that it is derived from. The CSL is not just a road racer, enthusiast’s car and technological masterpiece, it is also a highly collectable, appreciating, rare machine. Values have risen steadily and continue to rise today, as the numbers of good cars dwindle – out of the original run of only 422 RHD cars sold in the UK we estimate that less than half remain as truly collectable examples.

This excellent CSL is in the popular silver grey (the only other option being black) and is very well known to us. Having covered only 64,400 miles with an impeccable service history both the physical and mechanical condition are every bit as good as you would expect from a car we have seen in our showroom twice. Our technical team have carried out a rigorous inspection, revealing only a tiny handful of niggles – and notably none of the ‘Achilles heel’ items such as boot floor fractures – all of which will be taken care of during the preparation process for the new owner. This beautiful CSL will be delivered with a brand new MOT, serviced completely up to date, and prepared to our famously high standards.
