BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Revealed

Concept car tribute to the 3.0 CSL coupe from the 1970s breaks cover at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este

BMW revealed the 3.0 CSL Hommage design concept at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este today. The model pays tribute to the 3.0 CSL coupe from the 1970s, inheriting obvious design cues from its predecessor while maintaining a strong yet lighter body.

Up front, the design concept features circular openings and elongated slots that harken back to the original model. The resemblance continues with a long horizontal chrome accent line running through the body. The bold rear spoiler, as well as the V-shaped bonnet, are also borrowed from earlier BMW coupes.

Instead of aluminum, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage uses carbon fiber reinforced plastic on elements like the diffusor. The interior also is full of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, creating an unusually minimalistic look. Thanks to a number of changes, the model is 440 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Powering the coupe is a "powerful" inline-six engine with eBoost, which could signal some form of electrification.

The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage features a Golf Yellow exterior, the original color of its spiritual predecessor. Topping off the look are black 21-inch alloy wheels, LED lighting stips, and a completely different interpretation of the brand's shark nose grille. Check out the gallery for more pictures of the 3.0 CSL Hommage.
