BMW’s vibrant ‘Golf Yellow’ 3.0 CSL Hommage draws inspiration from the original 1970s 3.0 CSL (Coupe Sport Leichtbau). BMW head designer Adrian van Hooydonk says: “The BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage represents a nod to the engineering achievement exemplified by the BMW 3.0 CSL in its lightweight design and performance.

“Whereas the original CSL used plenty of aluminum to keep its weight down, its modern-day sibling’s material of choice is carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP), which is visible on the car both inside and out. If you’re waiting to hear what that ‘3.0’ translates under the hood, BMW told us that power comes from ‘a powerful six-cylinder in-line engine with eBoost’ or in other words, a hybrid unit. Again, no other specific details were shared about the mechanical choices,” reports Carscoops.
