BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage meets the parents at Villa d’Este
Holy aerodynamic addenda, Batman
The original BMW 3.0 CSL earned its ‘Batmobile’ nickname not for its heroic efforts in competition showdowns the world over, but rather the dramatic aerodynamic add-ons it wore for reasons of poise and purpose. Naturally, the ‘CSL Reloaded’ incorporates the signature air dam, bonnet fins and double-damage spoilers of its forefather (albeit in typically over-exaggerated modern form), while showcasing BMW’s latest inroads into carbonfibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) technology to stay true to the CSL’s ‘Leichtbau’ lineage. Painted in oh-so-Seventies Golf Yellow, the Villa d’Este showcar will meet the legendary Alexander Calder 3.0 CSL Art Car at the prestigious event, which will also see concept debuts from Zagato and Carrozzeria Touring.
