BMW M will celebrate 50 years of Monterey Car Week with a number of BMW M cars, this will include the new limited production M4 CSL, the new 2023 M8 Competition Coupe and Convertible, Gran Coupe and more.
BMW will also be showing some of its original M vehicles including the 1973 3.0 CSL to the 493 hp 2016 M4 GTS and more.
The new BMW M4 CSL combines old-school racing passion with innovative technology to create a unique performance experience. Its unique character stems from two key mission statements: lightening, and strength. An increase of 40 hp over the current BMW M4 competition to 543 hp and a weight reduction of 240 lbs. plots with the DNA of the original motorsports chassis, and the results speak for themselves. At the Nürburgring Nordschleife, which is the ultimate standard for the agility and handling precision of all BMW M cars, the M4 CSL posted a lap time of 7:20.2, the fastest ever for a serial production BMW. Global production of the M4 CSL began in July and is limited to just 1,000 units, with a base price in the US of $139,900 plus $995 for destination and handling. The BMW M4 CSL will make its public debut at the Legends of the Autobahn on Thursday, August 18, at Pacific Grove Golf Links in Pacific Grove, CA. The new M4 CSL can also be seen in action at the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion Hillclimb event on Sunday, August 21.
For 2023, the BMW M8 has received subtle but meaningful improvements. Now exclusively available in 617-hp Competition specification, the M8 Coupe, convertible and Gran Coupe receive a new double-bar grille, new and larger 12.3-inch Center Control Displays, and new colors and trimmings inside and out, including on the racetrack.
