The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R has finally brought out the beauty, that was waiting to dissipate from its earlier predecessors. The Bavarian Automaker has revealed this piece of engineering marvel which pays a tribute to their 1975 Hommage at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Take a look at this extensive gallery, featuring the 3.0 CSL Hommage R:
The exteriors, set apart from their near identical installment last year, is enveloped in the traditional BMW livery – white trimmed with stripes of the company’s trademark colours. The new design complements these lively colours and blends in perfectly.
The concept’s race-derived cabin is futuristic, with minimalist interior. The Hommage R was conceived to establish a direct connection between the driver and the machine. The driver’s helmet renders the current speed, the gear engaged and engine information. The steering wheel display, with its innovative and brilliant design, provides the driver with information on the current track and race position. Other racing additions to the interior include a fire extinguisher system and an emergency shut-off. The white iconic livery has been seeped into the leather seats and provides a perfect look for the driver and admirer.
The company has concentrated their efforts on the CSL Hommage’s breathtaking body which is framed by air defectors, wheel arches and a prominent rear spoiler. It also houses additional and extensive air intakes, the large fixed rear wing, roof spoiler, front splitter and huge side exhausts. A lot of carbon fibre is used to make the car lighter and sturdier, in comparison to the earlier generations.
The Rear-Wheel Drive with a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine is in sync with an ‘e-boost’ electric motor, which runs on devilish 21-inch alloy wheels. The use of Bavarian hallmarks, along with the traditional BMW design has pushed the company’s design team into a new racing module. Although the concept is still not confirmed to go to the production stage, it has definitely set some standards for its upcoming ventures. With the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R, the future of real time intelligent cars is just at the brink of eruption.
