With the BMW 3.0 CSL, M GmbH has given itself a 560 hp gift for its 50th birthday. The new edition of this legendary car is the most exclusive vehicle ever to be produced by BMW M, with only 50 units available for sale. The premiere of the model was preceded by the release of the “Vehicle 0”, which went down a storm in June 2022 with its spectacular M Heritage wrap. This vehicle will only exist once, and Hans Winkler, test engineer and body coordinator at BMW M, has a very special relationship with it. He found the design of the Erlkönig so charming that he dedicated a unique miniature to it. It is so true to life that you could mistake it for the real one in photos taken with the right camera angle. We met up with the passionate model maker for an interview.
