Unveiled at Pebble Beach during last month’s Monterey Car Week in the U.S, the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R was launched. Created as a more hardcore and racing variation of the 3.0 CSL Hommage revealed earlier in the year, the Hommage R features truly unique styling and unlike many concepts, is fully operational.
Filmed here at a recent private unveiling in Paris, we get to hear the car starting up and revving in glorious HD. Unsurprisingly, its exhaust note is just as special as the exterior and interior design and certainly makes for a fitting spiritual successor to the original 3.0 racer from the automaker.
As the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R Concept is based around the ‘regular’ Hommage Concept, it features all the same crazy and eye-catching design elements. It does feature a few bespoke components however. For starters, it is painted in a shade dubbed Brilliant White and has been adorned with a BMW racing livery. Elsewhere, a set of lightweight gold alloy wheels have been installed while the front features a bolder splitter and revised kidney grilles.
In the cabin, the Hommage R Concept also includes some custom parts. For example, a set of racing-inspired carbon fibre seats have been fitted alongside six-point racing harnesses. Also found inside is a carbon fibre roll cage, white leather upholstery and wooden trim throughout. Finishing up the customisations is a steering column mounted display showing vital track and car information, a fire extinguisher and an emergency engine off switch.
