BMW’s 3.0 CSL Hommage given racing suit for Pebble Beach

BMW has again used a world-class concours event to reveal a new concept car. The racing version of the 3.0 CSL Hommage first revealed at Villa d’Este will go on display at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance…

Same car, different concours, new outfit

Design-wise, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R is almost identical to the Golf Yellow concept shown at Villa d’Este, though it has now been given the marque’s signature racing livery to stunning effect. Racing-relevant updates include a fire-extinguisher system, a steering wheel that displays current track and race position, and a helmet that provides the driver with speed and engine information.

Build it already!

Despite a rapturous reception for the CSL Hommage since Villa d’Este, BMW is unlikely to put it into production due to high development costs. Instead, it will serve as inspiration for a number of more extreme, lightweight variants of existing models created by M division – the first of which, the M4 GTS, will also be displayed at Pebble Beach this weekend.
