The BMW 1 Series M was in competition with BMW M3 CSL E46

The BMW 1 Series M coupe was in competition with the BMW M3 CSL E46 and we know this from a video that surfaced the web today.
The race took place on the Nurburgring Nordschleife race track in Germany and everything was caught on tape.
The camera was situated inside the 1 Series M trying to find out more on the CSL. Apparently the M3 CSL had racing bucket seats, big brakes and a very lightweight exhaust system and it had Michelin PilotSport Cup tires.
The 1 Series M has nothing modified, or at least nothing we could see or hear in the video.
So that means the model features a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine that can develop 335 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque and it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds.
