Split grill is a mark of a fast car. It denies to go slow if it has one. No one can explain it better than the 2023 BMW M4. Holding many of the specifications as its sibling, the M3, this has to be a faster one. Why? Because this 2-doored M3 doesn’t let you carry on more weight than there is room for in it.
BMW adds the CSL limited-edition track-focused model to the Bavarian company’s M4 lineup. The M4 CSL gains 40 horsepower over the M4 Competition—for a whopping 543 horsepower—and loses a claimed 240 pounds compared to the Comp version. Part of that mass-reduction effort sacrifices the coupe’s rear seats. Other weight savings come from a titanium exhaust system; carbon fiber roof, hood, and trunk; lightweight carbon fiber seats; and carbon ceramic brakes. Many of the suspension bits have been replaced with stiffer pieces, including the engine-and-transmission mounts, and the lighter 19- and 20-inch staggered wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R track tires.

Engine, Performance, Mileage, 0-60 mph
The M4 is motivated by a brilliant twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that comes in three potencies. The standard version makes 473 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. It pairs with rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission, whooping to 0-60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. With 503 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque, the Competition model is even quicker, but the lone transmission choice is an eight-speed automatic. And the lastly, the CSL variant all up with 543 horsepower, and 240 pounds lighter, the power delivered by this is immiscible to others.
All of the M4s is rated at up to 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway by the EPA.
