BMW is paying homage to a classic with its latest concept car.

Revealed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the new 3.0 CSL Hommage Concept pays tribute to the 1970s BMW CSL Coupe. CSL stands for “Coupé Sport Leichtbau” (coupé, sport, lightweight), and identifies this car’s main goal of shedding pounds. To do this, carbon fiber reinforced plastic was used extensively for the new model.

Talking about the rather striking design ,Karim Habib, Head of BMW Design said, “The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage celebrates many of those characteristic features, but without copying them. Indeed, some of the parallels are not immediately obvious. We wanted people to sense the family resemblance rather than see it straight off.”

No details were mentioned about what powers the concept. BMW says the interior is stripped down to the bare minimum, offering only the parts needed for hitting the race track.

Front and side profile of the CSL seems like some over the top aero kit you'd expect to see from some aftermarket tuning company but as you get to the rear.... OEM concept comes to mind.

Just thought I would post more pictures of this awesome looking concept. It feels like it is quite close to the BMW i8 in terms of styling.

Here's the i8:

Love how it has cues and features from other BMW's in their current line up along with some things we've never seen before. My favorite has to be the tail light and how it blends into the belt line.
