BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage

Since 1929, the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Lake Como, Italy, has been one of the premier places in the world to showcase vintage cars and wow-worthy concepts. BMW brought its A-game this year with the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage, a tip of the hat to one of the automaker’s finest sports coupes from the 1970s.

The exterior, built mostly with carbon fiber and soaked in “Golf Yellow,” works in a few styling cues from both the past and the current 6 Series, with a large grille, rear haunches, and robust creased fenders that wrap around to the massive rear wing, all with sweeping gentle curves. The laser headlights feature X-shaped centers that are reminiscent of old racecars, and just look awesome. Interior highlights include quilted racing bucket seats and a V-shaped, roll cage-like cross-member in the back.
