Carving A Corner Through Time And Glory

In 1975, BMW decided to participate in races across United States and built themselves a racer based on the 3.0 CSL BMW's best sports car at the time. It went on to etch its name on prestigious race circuits like Laguna Seca and dom nated tough events like the 12 hours of Sebring.

Therefore, on the 40th anniversary of the legend in 2015, BMW unveiled the 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept. It takes massive inspiration from the original car flared arches, stretched air deflectors and the iconic rear wing.

The front carries the biggest kidney grilles ever seen on a BMW along with LED-laser head lamps and tail lamps. Most of the car is carved out of carbon fibre, resulting in lower kerb weight. It seems to be using the M4's 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six, which makes it interesting.
