Master & the Protégé: The CSL & the 1M on the \’Ring

Let ‘s get the week started right. The video above features the recently released 1M doing battle with the famous M3 CSL around the track that has defined all M cars for years: the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Sport Auto has tested both at the ‘Ring and the times are 7:50 and 8:15 respectively. But the 1M looks pretty impressive. Yes there are a lot of variables (too many to mention really) that keep a direct comparison from being valid, it ‘s hard to imagine the 1M not being close to the CSL in the right hands.

Hat tip to Steve for the link.

    The CSL can pull away pretty easy, they both look to have similar handling and looks like the 1M has better brakes. Still would choose a CSL hands down as one of the best cars BMW ever made. The video does prove one thing definitively. A Porsche Turbo will eat both, the red one that past them did not look like it was sweating and then walked away out of site though the corners. Agreed though a lot of variables.
