BMW Hommage concept pays tribute to the iconic Batmobile

BMW has released a teaser of the 3.0 CSL Hommage concept, set to be revealed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este on May 22.

The said concept pays tribute to the 3.0 CSL (aka Batmobile), an iconic BMW Coupe from the 1970s. With this, BMW said that the Hommage concept is “a nod to the engineering achievement exemplified by the 3.0 CSL in its lightweight design and performance.”

BMW adds that the Hommage concept will have “sheer dynamics” along with “striking” air deflectors while the lower section of the body is made of carbon fiber. From the looks of it, the concept could be fitted with prominent wheel arches, large rear spoiler and distictive taillights.

The interior of the 3.0 CSL Hommage concept will feature only the “absolutely essential” with a “driving related funtion” to save weight.

BMW has yet to release the power output rating of the 3.0 CSL Hommage concept.
