BMW M-badged cars to soon to get the revived CSL badge

BMW M-badged cars to soon to get the revived CSL badge

- BMW to revive CSL moniker
- Last seen in M3 which was out of production in 2004
- M-badged SUVs and crossovers will not get the new badging

Remember the good old times from the 1970s when the BMW racecars carried the CSL badge? Well, the good news is that the German car manufacturer is considering reintroducing the popular moniker for its M-badged cars and will also replace the GTS versions of various appropriate cars. The CSL badge was last seen on the M3 which went out of production in 2004.

For those who are unaware about what CSL stands for – it stands for Coupe, Sport, Lightweight; which also clearly means that M-badged SUVs and crossovers will not get the new badging. The new revision in badging will mean upgrading will mean we can expect to see the M2 being rebadged as the M2 CSL and the M8. The traditional CSL cars featured less mass and sharper package which was first seen on the stunning 3.0 CSL built to compete in the European Touring Car Championship. The car was popularly nicknamed as the "the Batmobile”.
