BMW celebrates 50 years of its M racing division with incredible limited-edition creation | The Sun

BMW has revealed a stunning new model in celebration of 50 years of its M racing division.

The new BMW 3.0 CSL harks back to the original 3.0 CSL 'Batmobile' first launched in 1973 that won multiple races.

The radical new car will be limited to just 50 units, meaning there's a very good chance it'll be worth a fortune in the future.

If you getting a small sense of déjà vu, that's because the new 3.0 CSL is based on BMW's M4.

No performance figures have been released, but given all that power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual, you can expect it to be a handful.

There's also a lot of carbon fibre – the roof, bonnet, boot lid, front and rear aprons, side sills, rear diffuser and rear spoiler are all made of it.

On top, is an iconic white red and blue racing livery inspired by the old 1973 3.0 CSL.

Keeping the kilograms down further is a set of lightweight alloy wheels with tyres specifically designed for the car.
