Racing homologation has given us some of the greatest cars of all-time. Here is one of them, the BMW 3.0 CSL. Built for competition in the European Touring Car Championship, the ultimate version of the car arrived in 1973 with a 203 hp 3.2-liter straight-six engine and all the aerodynamic bodywork one could ask for.
Up front there was a large air dam and fins running along the fenders. In the rear was the famous ‘Batmobile’ wing that actually came from the factory uninstalled, stored in the trunk since driving with it on public roads was a big no-no. But did that stop people from mounting it themselves? Thankfully not.
