The BMW 3.0 CSL is a pretty legendary, and one that BMW has decided to pay tribute at with the magnificent 3.0 CSL Hommage.

This vehicle recreates the flash of the classic 1970s coupe while using modern, lightweight materials and styling cues. Unsurprisingly, there's a lot of carbon fiber used in this car which enables it to be as lightweight and speedy as it is.

The recreation of classic cars is a popular thing to do among the world's leading automakers, but it isn't easy. The 3.0 CSL Hommage does a great job in that it pays tribute to the old-school classic car not by merely copying it but by imagining an appropriate look and design for it in the contemporary context.
