3.0 Coupe Sport Leicht (Light)

Creative homologation at its best.

The BMW engineers solution to the marketing departments requirements was to develop a limited production run ‘homologation special’ to meet the constrictive framework of the group 2 racing class regulations.

By removing the trim, using thinner steel for the main body-shell, aluminium alloy for the doors, bonnet and boot lid; and perspex for the side windows, a valuable 300lbs (136kg) in weight was saved – ‘Leicht’ indeed.
