[Video] Get a Closer Look at the 2023 BMW 3.0 CSL Here

The one-of-a-kind luxury automobile was unveiled today and will be available in 2023. Some units may make it to the U.S. market, even though the car hasn’t been homologated. Check-out the video below of the 2023 BMW 3.0 CSL from the BMW Welt.

This BMW 3.0 CSL, a hand-built, limited-edition driver’s car is based on the BMW M4. The 3.0 CSL has a nearly completely carbon fibre body. Six days are spent on the painstaking hand-painting of each of the CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) body panels. Eight separate procedures, including sanding and many paint coatings, make up the painting process. CSL carbon body panels were built on a dedicated production line. Fibreglass is used for aerodynamic components, such as the tail wing. The combined weight is 1,624 kg, which is lighter than the BMW M4 CSL.

In honor to the original race livery of the 3.0 CSL, all new 3.0 CSLs will be painted in Alpine White with the BMW M stripe. It comes with the same high-performance racing bucket seats as the M4 CSL, carbon fibre door panels and additional carbon fibre trim. Even the 6-speed manual transmission has a novel shifter.

The 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged inline-six found in the M4 CSL is modified for the BMW 3.0 CSL. It generates 560 hp, which isn’t much of an increase over the M4 CSL but is enough to make it the most powerful six-cylinder BMW ever made. At 7,200 rpm, the engine reaches its peak torque of 550 Nm. It has 560 horsepower and a comparatively low curb weight, giving it a kg-to-hp ratio of just 2.9 as opposed to the 6.2 of the original automobile.
