    New BMW M3 CSL is coming

    Hell yeah !! it was confirmed by Dr.Segler that a lightweight BMW M3 E90 is coming , "a special design model focusing on lightweight construction" said Segler.
    it will use 4.0 V8 but with higher HP!
    and it's not an April joke

    Take it with a grain of salt.

    Segler is leaving BMW for Mini so he will no longer be involved.

    Additionally, why an E90 and not the E92? This isn't a CLS necessarily. Let's wait for some kind of official info.

    From what has been said, this is just a lightweight car they are bringing to the M festival as the 24 hours of Nurburgring later this year. No details on if it will be produced and it certainly isn't a CSL, at least not yet.

    2 more doors , less displacement , less HP and probably less weight.

    Best news I've heard all week! $#@! that clown! He sure didn't last long at M division, I guess the bosses decided his retarded decisions were generating too much negativity.

    This would just have less weight but still the same S65 V8 with 420 hp.

    any lightweight M cars were house projects including E46 CSL , E36 M3-R ...
