BMW 1M CSL rendered

BMW is stroking its long, bushy and diabolical Moustache of World Domination and considering rolling out a hotter 1M Coupe, apparently.

In an interview with website, a BMW ‘source’ said a CSL-type 1M Coupe would depend on reaction to the M-powered 1-Series, set for a Detroit Motor Show unveil in January.

The last CSL was, of course, the E46 M3 CSL; a car which Jeremy described on Top Gear telly as “BMW, at its absolute best”. There’s also the recent and quite sold out BMW M3 GTS. Should the moustached rulers of M decide to sip from the same bottle, the 1M CSL could be a natty bit of kit.

Of course, they could also decide to build a four-door-coupe-estate version of the 1M Coupe, as well as a version running solely on the hopes and dreams of BMW fanboys. Rumours of a BMW 1M Coupe blimp capable of outgunning a Zonda around the ‘Ring are unfounded, and entirely speculative.

Until then, Mr has decided to imagine how a CSL 1-er could look (above). Remind yourself why you should be interested in the 1M Coupe here, watch a mini-lap video below, and then let us know below how your 1M CSL would look like…
