The M4 CSL is lighter, more powerful, and quicker than the M4 Competition, and costs $140,000!

Following the footsteps of the M3 CSL from almost two decades back and the M4 GTS that came out six years back, BMW has launched its latest special edition model, the M4 CSL.

It makes 40 extra horses, features an aggressive suspension tune, carbon-ceramic brakes, ultra-high performance tires, and is 240 pounds lighter. The M4 CSL is limited to just 1,000 examples worldwide and costs $139,900; nearly twice as much as the M4 Competition. Is it worth the extra price?

Birth of a Legend - This First-Year 1969 Nissan Skyline GT-R Kickstarted Godzillas Legacy

A rare opportunity to own an original, 1969 Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R just popped up. Can this be the ultimate JDM investment?

The story of the Nissan Skyline GT-R dates back to 1969, and even the first model featured hardware taken straight out of motorsports. For over 50 years, the GT-R badge has been responsible for most of Nissan’s proud racing heritage, and it all started with this car, which was recently listed on Bring a Trailer for a relatively reasonable price.
