Renowned rendering artist Jon Sibal is back again with an exciting project: the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage featured in the racing livery. When it was unveiled last week, the 3.0 CSL Hommage caught some fire not only because of its controversial front-end design, but also for the use of the bright yellow paint job.
Sibal decided to give the CSL Hommage the beautiful paint job seen on all the classic BMW racing cars, along with a new set of wheels and darkened headlights. Just by changing its livery, the 3.0 CSL Hommage seems more attractive and resembles a proper race car.
The muscular front end and upright grille are reminiscent to the original CSL and its muscular racing design. The size and protrusion of the massive kidney grilles nod to the power underneath the muscular hood. The way the fenders roll over and continue into the hood remind us of the fender flares on the original CSL.
From the front end, a continuous horizontal line runs the sides of the car. In profile, this line is seen across the entire length of the long wheelbase, giving the car a long, low and sleek look. While the low hood and roofline, combined with the massive 21” wheels give the CSL Hommage a very low looking stance.
All in all, BMW’s 3.0 CSL Hommage is a stunning achievement in design.
