2015 BMW Z4 GTLM CSL Homage Livery Meets 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Racecar At Amelia Island Concours



 2015 BMW Z4 GTLM CSL Homage Livery Meets 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL Racecar At Amelia Island Concours

It is hard to beat BMW’s on-track photos of this impressive pair of racecars. At Sebring, sun setting and cars in formation!? Yes please!

The new 2015 Z4 GTLM CSL wears an official Homage Livery for this year, 40 years since the first BMW USA Motorsport victory. TO celebrate this anniversary, the new Z4 GTLM CSL matches its forebear’s BMW Motorsport colors that have come to define the brand. This incredibly intense Z4 widebody fired up with the deep rumble of sheer power, with its rear slicks and massive downforce package the added proof.

Relative to this giant-killing Z4, the original CSL IMSA champion at Sebring 40 years ago seems fairly tame on startup. Watching the expert crew from BMW Classic and Motorsport setting up ahead of the Amelia Concours was a rare up-close chance to experience both cars. 88 new photos below, plus 20 more from BMW.

Together, there is magic in the air as they park nose-to-nose on the concours lawn podium.

It’s clear to see: They both promise checkered flags wearing white paint under the famed BMW M tricolor flags.
