The first G82 M4 CSL prototype test vehicle has been spotted!

According to our future models info, production may start July 2022 for a very short production run.

Two separate test cars are seen here and an insider source indicates that their plate numbers point to them being CSL prototypes.

Updated April 15, 2021

Added video of M4 CSL looking fast and sounding mean on the Nurburgring!





Updated April 14, 2021

M4 CSL has been spotted in Frozen Portimao Blue.

Wait where's the wing ? It appears that they just added a front splitter and a bigger lip spoiler appearance-wise. Given the CSL is the same tier as the GTS I was expecting something more than that aesthetically?

Why? The E46CSL had an integrated trunk lid spoiler exactly like this. If this G82 shall resemble a CSL, it is spot on.
Btw. the tacked on wings of the E92 and F82 GTS imho never looked good ... compared to a 911 GT3, where the wing fits perfectly.

What's the difference between CSL and GTS? Just whatever marketing says tests best with fans?

Interesting, the lower spoiler and new stance takes away from the hideous front and makes it acceptable. I wonder what the actual Nurburgring time is for the G80. All hush hush so far. Old one did it in like 7:45 and GTS in around 7:28.

I won't be fooled twice. As soon as they take that camo off it's going to somehow be uglier than the standard M4.

Why are M3/M4s so slow around the ring. With the engineering teams they have Munich they should constantly be getting trashed by the guys over at GM. The M4 has got to be able to keep pace with the Camaro.

Once again, an add-on front lip of afterthought.

How costly and difficult would it be to make a whole new exclusive integrated bumper for the mighty CSL model?

These don't seem on appearance alone to be very ambitious changes. No doubt early prototypes and you'd expect/hope for some more dramatic styling differences.

Unless M is focusing predominantly on weight savings right now with aero and other differences to become more obvious later? Other than plates how do we know this just isn't a LCI or even a CS mule?

Thankfully they didn't stack the exhaust outlets in the center like the MP exhaust!

Looks like a step in the right direction for a CSL (Coupe Sport Lightweight).

G8X is already rapid. Some drastic lightweighting and a focus on experiential should make for an awesome product.

You can add touring, pure and LCI for all of the above.
