The BMW M3 CSL (Coupe Sport Leichtbau, meaning 'Coupé Sport Lightweight') is a limited edition version of the M3 that was produced in 2004, with production totalling to 1,383 cars. It was available in two colours: "Silver Grey Metallic" and "Black Sapphire Metallic". As its name suggests, an emphasis was put on reducing weight. The CSL has a curb weight of 1,385 kg, 110 kg lighter than the regular M3. The engine used in the CSL had increased output over the regular S54 by 17 hp and 4 lbf⋅ft over the European M3. This is due to the use of sharper profile camshafts, a bigger air intake with carbon fibre manifold, a refinement of the exhaust manifold, and slightly different exhaust valves. The top speed was electronically limited as standard, but buyers with a current motorsport licence could order the CSL with the speed limiter removed. The sole transmission available was the 6-speed SMG II automated transmission, with revised software resulting in shift times of 80 milliseconds.

This stunning E46 CSL is finished in Black Sapphire Metallic with an Amaretta Reflex Cloth Interior and has the following specification:
