G-POWER with 550 hp V10 for BMW M3 CSL E46 !
spectacular modification for BMW M3 V10

perfectly tailored to higher performance tuned suspension
new SILVERSTONE wheel in 20 Zoll
G-POWER, the guarantor of three decades of high-value BMW tuning,
once again demonstrates their expertise in the field of motor design
modifications. Current modification is for no less a figure than the
BMW M3 E46 CSL! It receives a G-POWER revised V10 motor out of 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 sheeps
Heart transplant brings a quantum leap!
With the BMW M3 CSL, northern German refiners G-POWER present a
further exemplar for BMW series vehicles equipped with V10 motors.
First time vehicle presentation was held June 2007 at the
Salzburg-Ring in Austria during the M Drivers Club meeting; official
partners of G-POWER. 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-POWERs 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 its
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 coup, 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
cars power and is suitable for race track and road use as well.
Wheel SILVERSTONE for CSL
G-POWER equips the otherwise externally unaltered M3 CSL with its
newest wheels. G-POWERs affinity to racing sports is clear to
anyone by name alone: SILVERSTONE.
The new G-POWER SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheel is provided a concave
rim contour design specially developed for the latest BMW vehicle
generation but suis older models such as the M3 E46 CSL perfectly as
well. With this new, for G-POWER protected design, a pure BMW wheel
was generated exclusively adjusted to the BMW brake outlines.
Through this optimized spatial relationship, G-POWER improves
additional brake ventilation. The special interpretation of
multi-spoked design SILVERSTONE rims instantaneously makes the
entire wheel unit exceptionally unique!
In addition, this wheel already more than satisfies the exacting
safety requirements imposed by Bavarian manufacturers. They feature
BMW stipulated run-flat capabilities in conjunction with approved
tires! Furthermore, they are lighter in weight than the BMW factory
Mwheels. The reduced unsprung weight has a noticable positive
impact on comfort, even in conjunction with ultra low profile tires!
The new wheel, with ist striking appearance due to its unusual
shaped 10-double spoke design, is manufactured in OEM quality.
Naturally, they are made in Germany! Immediately eye-catching are
the extravagant screw fittings that seem to signify a multiple
pieced structure. Completely on the contrary though as its a
one-pieced wheel that through its characteristics, is quite
exquisite. The latest G-POWER technique of surface coating
SILVERSTONE DIAMOND wheels effectively prevents brake dust and dirt
from baking onto the wheels. This makes the wheel particularily
easy to care for. The silver-graphite-coated spider with its
brightly shining diamond cut face, creates a fascinating and
dynamic effect, blending harmoniously with all BMW exterior colours.
Customers acquire a wheel with a classic and stylish appearance.
The SILVERSTONE program is available in sizes 18 through 21 in
widths from 8.5 to 10.5. Presented here, M3 CSL rolls on
SILVERSTONE 21-inch wheels.
