Based on the current G82 edition of the BMW M4, the BMW 3.0 CSL pays homage to the legendary 3.0 CSL ‘Batmobile' from 1973, which won the European Touring Car Championship four years in a row.

The 3.0 CSL's straight-six engine produces 552bhp and 405lb ft of torque, the most ever in a road-legal BMW M vehicle. Six-speed manual transmission drives the rear wheels.

BMW says the crankcase is more robust, the crankshaft is lighter, and the cooling system is optimized for aggressive driving.

Alpine White paintwork and carbon racing stripes are part of the 3.0 CSL's racing livery. Yellow lighting honor the 2022 driver and team DTM champion BMW M4 GT3.

The automobile is the first major series model with a carbon roof, bonnet, bootlid, front and rear aprons, side sills, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler.

BMW says it's improved aerodynamics and handling. The model has chunkier wheel arches, a huge rear spoiler, and a thicker rear end, with a BMW M3 bonnet and headlamps.

Its fenders have been redesigned to mimic the original 3.0 CSL's, and the huge rear spoiler boosts downforce and traction.
