The BMW Blog, citing sources internal companies, stated that the 3.0 CSL will be introduced in November. This fits with what we already know about the BMW M timeline for 2022.
The XM SUV is expected to launch before the end of this month, with the G87 M2 block debuting on the eve of October 12.
The BMW 3.0 CSL
BMW plans to manufacture only 50 units of the model in Germany globally, but none officially arriving in the United States, due to homologation problems in the country.
The BMW Blog reported that 30 units are aimed at European buyers and eight are aimed at Asian buyers and it is unclear where the remaining 12 would be destined.
The car's design will be based on the 3.0 CSL Hommage and 3.0 CSL Hommage R concepts which, as the name implies, was inspired by the iconic veteran, which is a positive point.
This concept car surprised fans, who instantly begged BMW to build it.
The BMW 3.0 CSL will be clad in lots of carbon fibres, slimmer body-hugging seats and even a reduced starter battery.
The track-focused machine will reportedly weigh 1,550kg following a draconian diet that will include a rear seat exclusion and a streamlined instrument panel.
BMW will offer 20-inch and 21-inch wheels, front and rear respectively, with a unique paint job more likely to form part of the overall package.
While the S58 engine already produces 503 horsepower in the M4 Competition, it will be boosted further in the 3.0 CSL.
In fact, the engineers are going to extract even more oomph for the retro-flavored special edition.
Experts say the model will have up to 560 hp and the additional engine is expected to catapult the 3.0 CSL to 62 mph (100 km/h) in three and a half seconds.
The price of this limited model is estimated at 750,000 euros and its production is expected to begin shortly after its presentation in November, with the first deliveries scheduled for early 2023.
