NOSTALGIC GRAINS' RESTO-MOD BMW 3.0 CSL RACE CAR
but this is actually pretty neat. In 2013, Hondada introduced Miimo, an autonomouss compact lawn mower. Think of it as a Roomba of sorts for your grass.
For the 25th anniversary of Honda's Type R division, Honda UK came up with an idea that is equal parts awesome and hilarious. Finished in Championship White paint, red “H” badging, black “bumpers”,
What started out as a factory 1973 BMW 3.0 CSL has gone under the knife over the past year, building up to a full blown replica of the famous 3.0 CSL Race Car – with a bit of a modern twist.
The original motor just wouldn't cut it for what Izaguirre was after, so he sourced an S50 out of an E36 M3. With the addition of a Precision 6266 turbocarger and a trunk radiator setup, the “race car” moniker isn't just some fluffed up title – this thing is built to battle. Carbon fiber will be used liberally in the dashboard, seats, and aero, and some 17-inch center-lock BBS wheels will finish off the look at ground level.
The car is still under construction, but we're told it's almost ready to go. Keep an eye out for this nostalgic racer at SEMA 2017. and sporting a cute little black and white spoiler, the newest Miimo prototype is modelled after the newest Civic Type R. It's the perfect yard and garage accessory for any enthusiasts who already own a real Type R. Unveiled alongside the Miimo Type R was another edition modeled after Honda's CBR Fireblade, complete with an accurate livery.
Rolling autonomously around your lawn, the Miimo Type R is designed to trim blades of glass so lightly and often that you won't need to collect dead grass when it's done. The tiny clippings simply scatter back into the lawn acting as a natural fertilizer. When almost out of battery, the unit will return itself to its charging point and refuel. Honda, please put this into production for the sake of neglected car enthusiasts' lawns everywhere.
