Report: BMW 3.0 CSL debuts in November at €750,000

The XM and Z4 facelifts will debut this week, followed by the M2 in October. 2022 also delivered the 3 Series and X7 LCIs, new 7 Series, and electric i7 variant. The Bavarians also launched the X1/iX1, so it's been a busy year. The 3.0 CSL's debut is nearing.

BMWBLOG's Munich sources say the special edition will debut in November. The Competition Sport Lightweight won't be the model M fans expected to follow the mid-engine M1. Instead, it'll be a modified M4 CSL costing €750,000.

The 3.0 CSL will be marketed exclusively with rear-wheel drive, like the M4 CSL. A manual gearbox is a big distinction between the two. The ultra-exclusive sports automobile may only come with a 6MT.

The S58 engine is estimated to produce 560 hp, outperforming the M4 CSL's twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six by 10 hp and the M4 Competition by 50 hp.

The modern-day 3.0 CSL E9 will have greater power and weigh 1,550 kg (3,417 pounds). It's 75 kg (165 lbs) lighter than the M4 CSL, which shaved 100 kg (220 lbs) from the M4 Competition Coupe.

The superfast coupe will reportedly go from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds, two-tenths of a second faster than the M4 CSL. That may not sound spectacular, but we're comparing a manual automobile to an automatic.

BMW will make 50 cars, with 30 staying in Europe and 8 going to Asia, according to the report.

The United States won't get any of the remaining 12 cars. First automobiles should arrive early next year after production begins in November.
