The high-ranking official did not reveal more details about the mysterious model, but the report strongly suggests that it will be the rumored BMW 3.0 CSL. The spiritual successor to the E9 CSL “Batmobile” from the 1970s will be based on the M4 CSL but feature a completely redesigned chassis, likely to borrow styling cues from the cool 2015 BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Concept.

Furthermore, the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine can be tuned to produce around 600 hp (447 kW / 608 hp), along with less weight and a more aggressive suspension setup.
