This year, the BMW M division is celebrating its own 50th anniversary, so the Germans have prepared many gifts for themselves and their fans. As it often happens, the main highlight was left for the finale – and it is the newest BMW 3.0 CSL coupe, which is based on the legend of the 1970s with the same name.
The new car imitates not only the name but also the style: extended wheel arches, a giant anti-wing at the back (“batmobile”!), yellow headlights, and branded stickers. And also – pay attention – the shape of the “nostrils” has been changed, which is clearly different from the design of the BMW 4-series coupe, on the basis of which the BMW 3.0 CSL 2023 model is built.
In addition to the appearance, the car also received many technical changes. Under the hood is a 6-cylinder 3-liter turbo engine that produces 560 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. Next, the classic 6-speed mechanical transmission and rear-wheel drive are included in the game, but with an electronically controlled differential. In addition, the BMW 3.0 CSL super coupe can offer adaptive suspension and 400mm ceramic brakes with 6-piston calipers. The latter are hidden behind wheel rims with a central locking nut and special Michelin tires decorated with the number “50”: in honor of the anniversary!
By the way, only 50 such cars will be produced. And each of them will be marked with its own number, which is placed on a plate in the cabin. Which is distinguished by sports seats, “3.0 CSL” markings, and numerous carbon details – a real exclusive!
Realizing that the car will immediately become a collector’s item, the BMW company decided not to miss out and once again emphasize the symbolism of the 50th anniversary of its own M division. How did they do it? It’s very simple: they set the price of the new BMW 3.0 CSL coupe at 505,050 euros.
