To further entice us with something we, as yet, can’t have, BMW has released a promo video for their seriously gorgeous 3.0 CSL Hommage R concept which was revealed a few short days ago at the Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance.
BMW made something of a splash with their original 3.0 CSL Hommage, and while appealing its looks were somewhat of a mixed bag. Quite by magic, the Munich automaker managed to turn that completely around with Hommage R.
Obviously helped along by a racier and more aggressive overall exterior, replete with BMW’s classic racing colours. It serves as a celebratory vehicle, marking the brand’s 40th year of presence in North America.
They say it is "the perfect fusion of driver and machine", something that’s backed-up by the special augmented reality heads-up display built into the car’s special helmet. The carbon fibre seats and dashboard’s thin wood trim pays tribute to the original 3.0 CSL of the 1970s.
Anyway, do enjoy the video footage, beautifully shot to torment the lustful petrolhead. Thanks BMW.
There's just something about cars. It's a conveyance, it's a liability, it's a tool; but it can also be a source of joy, pride, inspiration and passion. It's much like clothes versus fashion. And like the latter, the pursuit of perfection never ends.
