The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage is the latest concept unveiled by the Bavarians. The CSL Hommage joins the likes of M1 Hommage or the 328 Roadster Hommage, and just like those glorious design studies, it won’t make to the production lines.
But that hasn’t stopped rendering artists from around the world imagining what the production version might look like. Tobias Hornof is one of them and his latest work highlights the design changes needed for the CSL Hommage to make it to your garage. The two renderings attached use the concept as a starting point and slowly removes some of its controversial elements, like the overly aggressive and oversized kidney grille. The iconic grille gets toned down and while it’s still massive, it fits better within the front fascia.
Next, the hood loses the functional air vents while not changing the beautiful creases of the hood. The exhaust tips on the side of the car have been removed and since they don’t appear in the rear, we can assume the rendering artist imagined this as being a fully electric racing car.
In the back, the layering design of the spoiler and taillights is being substituted with a classic racing wing and elongated taillights that stretch across the rear and quarter panels. As with all concept cars, the side mirrors are the first thing to go away and in this case, they are replaced by “conventional” mirrors with turn signal indicators built-in.
With just a few changes, the 3.0 CSL Hommage doesn’t too far from a production-ready car and without a doubt, it would find a place in many homes, especially here in the U.S.
