Khyzyl Saleem Turns BMW’s 3.0 CSL ‘Batmobile’ Into A Sinister Street Racer

Released as a homologation special in 1972 for the purpose of campaigning in the European Touring Car Championship, the BMW 3.0 CSL — an L-spec (denoting “liecht” meaning “light”) of the earlier CS — is one of the Bavarian brand’s most celebrated and sought after models, with production limited to only 1,265 units. And while the 3.0 CSL is already a beautiful piece of German engineering and automotive design, Khyzyl Saleem has taken the elite Bimmer to the next level, applying his signature customization treatment to the CSL in a series of drop-dead gorgeous renders.

Khyzyl happens to be a big fan of the track-only IMSA (International Motor Sports Association) version of the 3.0 CSL, which was one of the race variants affectionately referred to as the “Batmobile” due to the appearance of its full aero kit so the idea for this project was to create a street-legal version. The result is nothing short of stunning, with a menacing and thoroughly modern appearance that boasts a full wing and wide body kit while retaining key traits from the original BMW such as the iconic kidney grille and 2002-esque headlights.
