BMWS MOST POWERFUL STREET-LEGAL STRAIGHT SIX
BMW 3.0 CLS 50 YEARS OF RACING HERITAGE CELEBRATED IN ONE VEHICLE
Produced in a strictly limited edition, only 50 consecutively numbered units of the special model will go on sale, giving the BMW 3.0 CSL the status of a rarity that will surely be at the top of the list for any loyal and enthusiastic fan of the BMW M brand.
Featuring a manual, rear wheel drive, 3.o litre straight six engine, the BMW 3.0 CLS is built as an ode to the companies most successful period of racing history, delivering ‘….an emotional encounter with the history and the present of the world’s most powerful letter – M.’
The historic references continue throughout the design. Distinctive body contours and striking rear spoiler are unmistakably based on the design of the legendary coupe from the 1970s.
More subtle touches, such as headlights shining in yellow, both during the welcome scenario after unlocking the doors and when the low and high beams are activated, reference to successful GT racing cars.
The BMW 3.0 CSL features the most powerful straight six-cylinder engine ever used in a road-legal BMW M automobile. The version of the drive system with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which was developed exclusively for the BMW 3.0 CSL, delivers a scorching maximum output of 412 kW/560 hp, capped at 191 mph.
Likely to cost around £750,000 but with no immediate release date, you had better prepare the piggybank for a future raid.
