It was just 3 days ago that BMW unveiled the all-new Concept Z4, a continuation of the brand’s renowned roadster. The teasers that surfaced piqued our interest, and the press images had us craving more. Seeing it in person was an experience all its own, with the lines, shape, and size taking form in 3 dimensions. We pray it varies little in production form, as it’s easily the most excited we’ve been about a BMW concept since the initial Concept M4 we unveiled a few years ago.
With each passing year, as of late, BMW brings forth a new “Hommage” design study, which blends the future of BMW’s styling with its rich, well-defined past. Incredible examples, such as the 328 Hommage, the M1 Hommage, and of course, last year’s CSL Hommage, help to define where BMW is heading in the future, while recognizing and paying due tribute to the cars that established the brand.
In May of this year, the world was shown BMW’s “CSL Hommage,” a concept that caters to the philosophies and genetics of the iconic E9 CSL. In both mission and spirit, the CSL Hommage reinvigorates BMW’s pioneering past while looking forward to the future of the marque, and just one glance at the concept will speak volumes to its heritage. Its aesthetics are fashion-forward and avant garde, inciting both positive and negative dispositions from BMW fans across the world.
