BMW M6 CSL Axed Before Production


BMW reportedly considered creating a stripped-out CSL version of its M6 luxury coupe, but ended up axing the project after the company could not justify a business case for the car.

The CSL would have had an active aerodynamics package, 220 lbs stripped from the car and upgraded power levels, but BMW ended up nixing the car, along with a prototype X5M that featured a rear-drive layout, SMG transmission and an unspecified V8 engine. BMW revealed the cars on Monday, as part of a collection of classic M vehicles.

While an M6 CSL sounds great on paper, the M6 was always more of a Grand Tourer, with an emphasis on luxury and rapid pace rather than outright performance. A CSL version would have run counter to the car's mission, and judging by the amount of convertible M6s in existence, would likely have found few takers.
