BMW 3.0 CSL HOMMAGE reveal and engine start-up [VIDEO]
So BMW have made a “HOMMAGE”, new concept vehicle, based on the old-school 3.0 CSL. Now we all could agree that the 3.0 CSL was an all-round classic. Typical BMW styling, with a beautiful engine to match. Now they saw, you cannot recreate legends, let alone try to make them better.
BMW`s attempt to make a “HOMMAGE” is very disappointing to say the least. The concept vehicle is a perfect example of how BMW would’ve been, if it were a Japanese company. It looks like a JDM product gone wrong. Don’t get me wrong, JDM is awesome, but we’d rather leave that to Nissan, Toyota and Honda.
The Front fascia of the car looks like it was lifted of the Z4, and sent to a tuner shop (a bad tuner shop). The rear end looks like a futuristic Japanese Domestic Market vehicle, gone wrong.
The interiors of the car look futuristic, with awesome bucket seats. The highlight of the interiors is the steering wheel, which looks lifted up from a sci-fi movie (with swanky digital speedometer and all).
It`s sad that the company did not give this vehicle the attention it deserves. Taking cues from the original, it could’ve made an awesome product, which might’ve even entered production. Take the SLS AMG for example, a perfect reincarnation of a classic, that won many hearts.
Here is a video of the 3.0 CSL (they could’ve chosen a better color at least). Have a look at it, and tell us what you think!
