G-POWER, with nearly three decades of BMW tuning, has demonstrated their expertise in the field of performance modifications with the BMW M3 CSL powered by a modified V10 engine from the current BMW M-Series. With considerably more than 500 hp, the CSL is promised more significantly improved driving performance, yet remains practically unchanged in appearance: a wolf in sheep's clothing.
The modulation of the larger V10 aggregate to the significantly smaller M3 CSL engine compartment is mastered by G-POWER with flying colours. Directly consequential to the V10 series aggregate from the M5 is a substantial increase in performance alone, yet G-POWER would not be G-POWER if there wasn't more to be had. Pertaining to engine tuning, G-POWER's customers benefit from 26 years of collected experience. Balancing this experience, the V10 elicits 550 hp and catapults to an acceleration of guaranteed 580Nm. In contrast to the original six-cylinder in-line engine with 360 hp and 370 Nm, the results are really quite impressive. The remaining facts are no less spectacular. Despite a somewhat higher vehicle total weight of 1550kg, G-POWER with it's 'heart tranplant' sank the power to weight ratio from a good 3.9 kg/hp to a superior 2.7 kg/hp. Instead of 4.8 seconds from 0-100 km/h, G-POWER CSL V10 reached this mark in a breath-taking 4.2 seconds. Even more important in reference to super sports cars, is the speed acceleration to 200 km/h. With 11.6 seconds, the G-POWER CSL V10 leaves all others with scarcely a chance. Often the top speed of this bolide surpasses even those more powerful engines from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen or Maranello, Italy: 335 km/h is a quantum leap versus the 285 of the original M3 CSL!
This V10 'operation' from G-POWER is available for the complete palette of the BMW models. Whether the current 3-series coupé, Z4, X5 or new M3, G-POWER rises and meets each challenge. Additionally, G-POWER is already working on a bi-compressor kit for the V10 engine and shall be setting further milestones in the higher divisions of the distinguished BMW refinement segment. The targeted performance of the first level lays by approximately 640 hp and for those especially power hungry, further levels can liberate up to a possible 750 hp.
Clearly, for more security even further alterations on the CSL technology are necessary. Based on brute performance, G-POWER took on the suspension as well. Working closely with suspension manufacturer KW automotive, which is very succsessful in racing at Nuerburgring-Nordschleife, the northern Germans compiled an extensivey tested suspension system. It is perfecty adjusted to the car´s power and is suitable for race track and road use as well.Source - G-Power
