On the design competition Concorso d’eleganza Villa d’este, BMW introduced the 3.0 CSL coupé Hommage, the Germans show not only pays homage to the “classics” lineup, but also how the past can shape the future.
A new concept, says project chief designer Karim Habib, has many Parallels with her ancestor – both obvious and not very noticeable. At the forefront was given the aerodynamics of the vehicle, each functional air intake and cools the parts of the vehicle, the rear spoiler provides downforce back, the wings are a special form of optimal passage of air flow.
In BMW remember that their 3.0 CSL was a pioneer in the creation of a coupe with the roof line, not “flowing” in the trunk.
In the cabin tried to stick to the formula “each element must be functional”, so the rule of minimalism.
We can assume that 3.0 CSL Hommage will remain a design experiment, but the individual elements of the shape of the compartment can still appear on production models of BMW.
