    I want a CSL :(

    This one in particular

    taken from http://www.petrolheads.com/news/defa...?storyId=17133

    Remember, remember the 5th of November. Pagani might.

    With the ink barely dry on the timesheets confirming that their Zonda F Clubsport holds the fastest production car lap time around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, a Swedish tuning firm lowered the bar again yesterday. And by quite a considerable margin too.

    In a specially tuned M3 CSL, touring car driver Richard Göransson lapped the track in 7 minutes 22.9 seconds, shaving just shy of five seconds from the Italian supercar’s record set by 'Ringmeister Marc Basseng.

    The CSL used has certainly received plenty of attention in preparation for the run. The interior was discarded, and replaced with a roll cage and race seat, while windows and various items of bodywork were exchanged for lighter equivalents.

    The exterior also gained some go-faster fins on the wheelarches and a GTR-alike wing. More importantly, the car rides on a bespoke K&W, suspension set-up with big Performance Friction brakes.

    Oh, and did we mention the small matter of the supercharger which boosts the CSL’s already healthy bhp figure to around 600bhp.

    What’s more, the car is also up for grabs in a lowest unique bid auction with money raised going to charity, but not before another effort to beat the 7 minute 20 mark has been attempted.

    Looking at the picture of this CSL it’s hardly the sort of thing that you could use for anything other than assaulting European track days. While we do like the idea of the continuing war on the Nordschleife, it does beg the question just what the definition of a production car actually is?
