The Autenzell, Bayern-based tuning specialist will soon start taking orders for its new G-Power BMW M3 CSL E46 V10 M5 extensive upgrade program for the one of the most popular coupes in BMW’s recent history. There are too many acronyms and numerals in the title, so I feel obliged to explain what they mean.




They mean that German tuning studio G-Power has taken a mighty 5.0-liter engine from current BMW M5 E60, souped it up to 550 hp and implanted it in the BMW M3 CSL sports coupe in the E46 body. Something like that.

O.K., with the M5’s V10 installed, the M3 CSL’s power to weight ratio drops from 3.9 kg/hp to more impressive 2.7kg/hp and its zero to 100km/h acceleration time improves from 4.8 to 4.2 seconds.

It will take you 7.4 seconds more to break the 200km/h barrier and some more time to reach the maximum speed of 335km/h.

The G-Power BMW M3 CSL E46 comes equipped with new hi-performance suspension from KW Automotive and gets fitted with 21-inch 10-double spoke Silverstone Diamond wheels.
