A rare and magnificent example of the legendary M3 CSL in silver grey. Very few examples are left from the original 422 UK RHD cars in such original and unmolested condition. With just 18000 miles showing and with a full service history (including all MOT certificates), this CSL is one of the best examples available in the world. This particular CSL has been known to Munich Legends since the second owner, and has been cared for without thought to cost by all the subsequent owners. This particular CSL has Xenons, PDC, and the Hi-Fi options. M80 CSL (plate comes included in price) has always been a collector’s car, not a track toy, as can be immediately seen from the incredible condition. The exterior is unmarked, the paint looks as good as the day it left the production line, and the carbon fibre roof, trims and wheels are perfect. The interior is completely original and is in superb condition. Only the steering wheel suggests even the slightest sign of use, corroborating the 18000 miles shown on the odometer. M80 CSL will come supplied with a brand new MOT and fully serviced up to date. The whole car, including the boot floor has been fully inspected by our technical team and has been given a fully clean bill of health, with only the smallest list of items needing attention, all of which will be taken care of during delivery preparation. Given the cult status and desirability of CSLs, this is a rare and fortuitous opportunity to own one of the best examples of arguably the most exciting M car ever made.
Producing 360 bhp and an incredible sound from the 6 cylinder 24v 3246 cc engine and CSL-only air intake, this ultimate M3 accelerates from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, reaching a potential (de-restricted) top speed of around 161 mph (on the track, of course).
The BMW E46 M3 CSL is the car reckoned by Munich Legends to be the most symbolic of the modern M-Power BMWs (see poster on our gallery page), and without doubt a supreme future Legend. Only 422 E46 M3 CSLs where made in right hand drive, and values have risen steadily in recent years, a trend set to continue as the number of good examples dwindle.
The lightweight roof and body panels, adjustable gearbox and throttle response, track mode, CSL only lightweight one-piece seats and semi-slick Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres make for an incredibly exciting and highly addictive driving experience. In the words of BMW DTM and Touring Car champion Steve Soper, the M3 CSL “feels and sounds so much like a race car, I’m surprised it’s road legal”. Rest assured though, this CSL is both road legal and available to test drive now at Munich Legends (appointment only please).
