BMW presented on the occasion of Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este , on the shores of Lake Como in Italy, a prototype honors the 3.0 CSL.
N or are doubts that the prototype presented today by BMW executed masterfully a tribute the famous BMW 3.0 CSL, but I thought in a format according the twenty-first century. The project, conceived and implemented by the German mark, is the work of the design team of Adrian van Hooydonk and Karim Habib.
With great attention to detail, BMW 3.0 CSL reinterprets the masterfully. [1.99901 million]
For the body elected color traditional CSL maintaining some chords to the original model proportions, combining turn elements of harsh lighting and free use carbon fiber , capturing the spirit of the 3.0 CSL very convincingly. [1.99901 million]
Of course, without the need for an approval to mass produce freedoms design team were more spacious . BMW itself admits that there is a car that will be released as a production model, but instead say it is an one off , which the mark may take some features for some future model .
CSL means “Coupe Sport Leichtbau ‘ (lightweight sports coupe). With its bonnet aluminum windows plexiglass and rigorously equipamiente reduced to essentials, the old BMW 3.0 CSL managed slim 200 kg regarding BMW 3.0 CS standard.

These high strength fibers are even lighter and stronger than aluminum itself and the
Hommage BMW 3.0 CSL makes generous use of composites high-tech reinterpreting the concept of lightweight design for the current era. The CFRP is exposed to further transform it into an design element itself.
Although it is not a conceptual work to find his way as a production model series, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage is a good way remind us that BMW can still do more than just hybrid vehicles and traction Front .
