Nothing can beat a E36 M3 CSL! Who would believe that a 2003 coupe with 360 PS and manual tranny would be so competitive even today?

The Ultimate 3er. One of the best BMW ever made.

I really hope the upcoming F32 M4 arrive with the almighty CSL version.

Almost as fast as the much newer Alpina B3? Driven by Horst von Saurma?
