BMW brought its impressive 3.0 CSL Hommage R to a special event in Paris and they also fired up the engine to the delight of the gathered audience mesmerized by the design.

The concept made its debut more than a month ago in North America at Pebble Beach and it's basically a racing version of the original 3.0 CSL Hommage concept that was shown earlier this year at Concours d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. Don't get your hopes up too high as there aren't any plans for a production version since the two interesting concepts were developed primarily as a tribute to the iconic 3.0 CSL which this year is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

BMW has so far refused to provide details about the engine, but they did say it's an inline-six that benefits from eBoost technology and you can hear it has a very aggressive tone even when idle. It appears the concept is fully functional and according to the Bavarian marque it portraits the "perfect fusion of driver and machine."
