    Nothing more than a day dream: 1M coupe CSL

    JonSibal did a rendering recently after an interview with an unnamed source at BMW (why unnamed?). Sibal asks his "source" if a CSL 1M coupe is a possibility. The source replies that "anything is possible." Well, based on that, just about every blog has picked this story up. Why? We don't know, with nothing to substantiate it and an answer that isn't an answer this is making the rounds simply due to the rendering. If anything is possible, maybe an AWD V8 twin turbo 1M coupe is on its way? Hey, it's fun to dream. Check the usual quality rendering.

    Wouldn't a CLS have a carbon roof?

    Most likely, it is just done the way it is to look cool, no real accurate basis of how the car would look or be.

    Then this is actually just a picture of a 1M in M colors...
    Beautifull picure, but nothing more.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    We aren't going to see 450 hp from it. They won't leapfrog the E92 M3.

    According to the pussies at 1addicts, 451hp is an idiotic amount of power for the 1M to make, and anyone who thinks otherwise does not understand ///M cars.

    Its definitely not going to make 450HP. They should release it with 380HP and Bump the M3 to 450.

    I think they should release it with the magical 451HP rating. SCOTT26 said the modified N54 in the 1M has that potential, but they won't do it because the M3 sucks. Click here to enlarge
