BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R Displayed At Pebble Beach
|   Wednesday, September 09, 2015
In August of each year, car enthusiasts around the world come together for the Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, where they are attracted by the fascination with vintage cars, but also prototypes that reveals industry trends. This year BMW Group has come up with something very special: the world premiere BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R - a car that celebrates 40 years of BMW presence in North America, and the success in racing scored by BMW 3.0 CSL in 1975.


Given the objective of achieving the best possible fusion between pilot and the car, the pilot was the logical starting point for the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R design.
For the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R, the idea of focusing attention on the pilot begins with its near environment. This new approach first led the designers to the helmet, coverall and the pilot's seat, only after that they turned their attention to the lines and interior surfaces.

This approach of solving the problem changed the nature of conventional functions of the interior. As the first level of interaction with the pilot, the helmet visor assumes the function of the display, and contextual information projects - such as speed, gear used, and engine speed - directly in the pilot's field of vision. The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R improves the direct perception of the pilot.

Driver coverall (a classic design created by Puma) expresses from a visual point of view the connection between driver and car. If the driver has both hands on the wheel, illuminated strips integrated into the coveralls sleeves act as a status bar integrating the steering column through the driver's arms until the helmet visor. It is used to display, for example, the optimum time to change gear.

At the same time, the seats provide a guarantee that between the body of the pilot and the car, there are the best connections possible, providing a physical sense to almost the entire body in any situation, thus allowing it to react more quickly and more efficiently.

The clamshell seats follow a diagonal path climbing towards the rear, where a line extends from the backrest towards the rear through a carbon fiber structural element, which increases torsional rigidity of the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage R.

The white surface of the seats has decorations which are integrated into the clamshell seat to mimic the jumpsuits design, while the characteristic BMW Motorsport strips from the seat belts, with six points of attachment, add a splash of color.

The large wheelbase and elongated bonnet, visually define the Hommage model silhouette and give a touch of elegance that blends with the dominant sporty character. The M familiar graphics, defined by longitudinal lines, enhances this impression. Exclusive exterior color, Brilliant White, with a slight metallic effect adds gleam to the surfaces and confers strong contours, a sculptural impact almost.

The graphics of the line in the BMW Motorsport colors takes over the surface movements forward, backward, and sideways, further accentuating the car's muscular appearance.

The dark areas made from carbon fiber complement the flanks in the lower part, and are an indication of commitment to the lightweight design of the BMW 3.0 CSL original. 21-inche alloy wheels in matt gold color with black inserts are also a special design element.
