BMW M was born as a project of car fanatics who wanted to prepare a car to compete and have fun. What they did not know is that their passion would lead them to lay the foundations of one of the most iconic and respected high-performance branches in history, BMW Motorsport. 50 years after its foundation and dozens of historical models, the Bavarians celebrate half a century of life of BMW M with the BMW 3.0 CSL 2023. The 1972 3.0 CSL was born as a homologation model for European passenger cars, and in fact thanks to that car, BMW began to dominate on the tracks, so the tribute to it is more than justified. For the 2023 model, the brand used an M4 CSL as a base, although it is more than obvious that they have transformed it visually and mechanically. It has a sports differential lockable up to 100%. It will have adaptive suspension tuned by BMW M, as well as carbon-ceramic brakes as standard. The initials CSL mean: Coupé, Sport Leichtbau, the last word meaning: light. Precisely for this reason the 3.0 CSL undergoes extensive treatment that allows it to drop to 1,624 kg, 111 kg less than an M4 Competition. BMW confirmed that only 50 2023 3.0 CSLs will be built. What they also did not announce was its price, but given its rarity, changes and what it represents it will be far from the label of an M4 CSL.
