On May 22, BMW will unveil the new BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
The Hommage is the BMW Design Team’s tribute to the 3.0 CSL, a timeless classic and iconic coupe from the 1970s. It is a nod to the engineering achievement exemplified by the BMW 3.0 CSL in its lightweight design and performance. The Hommage draws on the character of the earlier model and endows it with cutting-edge materials to translate it into the present in a new and exciting guise.
BMW’s 3.0 CSL Hommage exudes sheer dynamics, with the body framed by striking air deflectors, powerful wheel arches and a prominent roof and rear spoiler. The stretched flanks serve as an elegant counterpoint to the distinctly sporty front and rear end. Subtle and finely sculpted surfaces convey dynamics and exclusivity, while the extensive use of carbon fiber for the lower section highlights the car’s lightweight design concept.
The rigorously pared-down interior of the Hommage renders its lightweight concept not only visible but tangible as well. All the elements in the cabin are absolutely essential and each constituent has a high-quality structural or driving-related function. In its materials and detail solutions, the Hommage displays technical supremacy and formal sophistication. It reflects the special character of the unique tribute, embodying as it does a consummate combination of lightweight design, sportiness and elegance.
