BMW bets on Black

THE BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage was the star of 2015 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the wildlooking coupe a nod to the 1972 BMW 3.0 CSL while testing design cues for a potential model line to take on the stripped-out Mercedes-AMG Black Series. Its design elements are expected to first appear on the M4 GTS, set to appear at Pebble Beach in August. “Our Hommage cars not only demonstrate how proud we are of our heritage, but also how important the past can be in determining our future,” BMW design boss Adrian van Hooydonk said.
