Concorso d’Eleganza: BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage Photos

BMW took the world by surprise with the reveal of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage at the 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza. “Our Hommage vehicles not only demonstrate how happy we are of our heritage, but also how vital the past can be in determining our future,” states Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

The other day we brought you unique pictures of the 3.0 CSL Hommage and now we have a new set of high-resolution pictures showing the automobile from multiple angles.

The Hommage Idea sticks out with its muscular front end and upright grille are reminiscent to the original CSL and its muscular racing design. There are ‘X’s designed into the twin-circle headlights, to evoke memories of the stickered ‘X’s on the headlights of long range racing cars of yore. The size of the kidney grille is exactly what bothered everybody after seeing the automobile, however we believe this is a design exercise to highlight a future design language where the front-end of the vehicles ends up being more huge — — simply not as massive as this one.

Right here is how our own Nico DeMattia described the front and rear-end design:

From the front end, a constant horizontal line runs the sides of the vehicle. In profile, this line is seen throughout the whole length of the long wheelbase, offering the vehicle a long, low and streamlined look. Dark CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic) sideskirts lend a visual gap between the intense yellow color of the bodywork and the pavement below. While the low hood and roofline, combined with the enormous 21″ wheels give the CSL Hommage an extremely low looking position. You’ll likewise notice the side-mounted exhaust pipes mounted just in front of the rear wheels. The CSL Hommage even has BMW Roundels installed at the base of the C Pillars, a throwback to the exact same design on the initial CSL.

The rear end is where the CSL Hommage truly comes alive, as the aerodynamic rear fenders form upward to create a rear wing between the both of them. An LED light bar runs the length of the wing down into the back of the car and is a spectacular piece of design. At the bottom, a CFRP rear diffuser lends a racing seek to the back of the Hommage. From above, the CSL Hommage shows off its curves, and you can clearly see how the vehicle forms a ‘V’ at both front and rear ends.
