Gaze in wonder at this astonishing BMW CSL render

Digital wizard cooks up a road-going IMSA 3.0 CSL, and our brains have stopped working

  • Vehicle artist Khyzyl Saleem recently posted how the IMSA 3.0 CSL ‘Batmobile’ is “one of the most beautiful racecars ever created".

    It is this that inspired his render of a road-going version, and we’d proffer that this is one of the finest, most lust-worthy BMW renders ever created.

  • You know the CSL's history, especially the IMSA version. BMW's then motorsport director Jochen Neerspach was tasked with developing a factory team to run the CSL in the States (it had, after all, won a European Touring Car championship and class win at Le Mans before). Long story short, it worked. Tremendously.

  • Almost as tremendously as this render works.

  • Look at the gri... nope, not going there. Let's just say this is pretty much perfect.

  • Side-exit exhausts, BBS wheels, huge rear wing. Check, check and very check.

  • To paraphrase 1989's Batman (what, you thought we'd go a whole article without referencing it?), it wants you to do it a favour. It wants you to tell all your friends about it.

  • Those toys. Where does he get those wonderful toys?

  • On a scale of 'I must have it immediately' to 'really, I must have it immediately', we're guessing you're at 'no, seriously, I must have it immediately'?
