Must read

2022 will be an unforgettable year for BMW and especially for the M sports department, which celebrates its 50th anniversary with the presentation of countless models. The BMW 3.0 CSL honoring the legendary 1973 3.0 CSL “Batmobile”.

Throughout the year, the M brand delighted us with the BMW M3 Touring, the new BMW M2 and the very special BMW M4 CSL, which became the starting point for this a few months after its release. Special edition inspired by the BMW 3.0 CSL “Respect” Concept introduced in 2015.

That’s why the new 3.0 CSL starts from the M4 CSL, but the appearance changes radically and becomes more sporty and aggressive compared to the coupé we know well. At the front, the grille is changing, which no longer develops vertically while maintaining the generous shapes. Also noticeable in the wheel arches wing-like aerodynamic profiles A clear reference to the 3.0 CSL generation E9.

The front light clusters are also derived from the M4 CSL, which now adopts the color yellow. remembering the race cars of the past but also the current M4 GT3 racing car, and at the back, the imposing wing that gave birth to the name “Batmobile” in the 70s draws attention. The wheels, on the other hand, have a new Y-spoke design and are 20 and 21 inches for the front and rear axles, respectively, and the tread Michelin tires specially made for him on the shoulder of the tire it is completed with inscriptions showing the number 50.

Under the hood we find the most powerful 6-cylinder inline engine ever assembled by BMW: The 3.0-liter twin-turbo is capable of 560 bhp and 550 Nm of torque.. More observers will notice that the torque is 100 Nm lower than the M4 CSL, and the reason for this choice is simple: the 3.0 CSL, 6-speed manual transmissionand this unit cannot handle the same peak torque as its derived sibling.

In a dynamic sense, the car will know its business thanks to the M differential, the brake system made of carbon-ceramic material and the adaptive M suspension using electronically controlled shock absorbers. The car also uses carbon fiber extensively to further reduce weight, especially in the cabin. Finally we remembered BMW will produce only 50 units From 3.0 CSL.
