Same as what Lamborghini does, but at least the body kit is much more dramatic than this CSL, and is a Lamborghini with a justified price tag.

I totally agree with the others. The G80’s grill should’ve look like this in the first place.

I guess I’m one of those guys who STILL couldn’t get over the G80 grill. It’s just too damn ugly. It never grew on me. It’s a grill on a mother could love…

Nope. Layout/desig looks different! It is rather a BMW M963 wheel ... eventually in 20/21 instead of 19/20 inch.

Looking at the concept car's wheels, they look like center locks as well. It would be pretty cool for the production car to have them. Hopefully what looks like a center lock is truly a center lock.

- both wings.

Mostly the head and rear lights seems to be more serie, than it was on the concept.

But most of the Elements seen on the Hommage are there.

I like it a lot , such a shame my bank account did not said yes to order one.
Same in my case, Bank account doesn't allow me to wrap my 335. I think af DIY will not need deep pockets but that's just a thought. I never did a Market survey. Wishing to wrap my beast in a combo of midnight purple gloss and satin black wrap. I know some of you may find it funny but believe me I have got this idea from a stunning car I have seen couple of weeks ago in the Downtown

I think they should have based this car off the M2. It would have been more proportionally like the concept (which appears based more off a 2 series than a 4) This car looks way too long compared to the concept.

But of course, BMW wouldn't admit to the m2 providing a better driving experience than the 3/4 (which have gotten too big)

It's not just the calipers though, clearly this is a G82 with some stuff tacked on and not a bespoke car worth the supposed $600K price.
The entire thing is an exercise in cost cutting. For $600K, here's the stuff you dont get; a bespoke chassis, motor, running gear, and braking. Kind of insane. I can't imagine what a customer who purchased one sight unseen would feel. You're expecting a bespoke supercar but get this.
Now lets be clear here, this doesn't affect me whatsoever since, you know, I don't have $600K to spend on a car. So my opinion is completely moot.
Side note, the AMG GTR Black Series also has sliding rear calipers.
Truly, everyone is cutting cost and raising prices. Still, it's sad seeing what BMW is doing to their M division. No more bespoke DCT, no more huge brakes, CLAR so more weight and size yet somehow interior shrinks. Oh well.

Nobody really cares about that just like nobody cares about the revised hood line. That's a forum geek thing.

Just want to add that the front kinda reminds of the old pre-LCI M2 grill. Looks like an enlarged version of that. It will probably look good without the camo, but still. Nice car overall.

Thought this was going to be a bespoke supercar going by the pricing estimates being thrown around.
A 4 series albeit with a transaxle, composite panels, trick suspension arms, centrelock hubs, beefed up drivetrain etc is still a 4 series.
Yes its a very trick car in the vein of an AMG gt black series etc. However its certainly not a 'supercar' & should be priced accordingly i would have thought. I can't understand people paying half a million $US for a tricked up 4 series.

Agreed! Even a Mercedes AMG Black Series GT has a floating rear brake caliper. Stopping power is not affected.

Don't agree at all, one is merely cosmetic the other is performance related.
If you don't understand the difference between a multi piston caliper & a sliding single piston caliper do some research.
It's simply a cost cutting exercise due to the implementation of an electric handbrake & SOME manufacturers (eg BMW/Mercedes) unwillingness to develop & implement a better solution than simply upping the front brakes stopping power or increasing rotor sizing. Some other manufacturers of performance cars do it properly (eg Ferrari/Porsche).
Yes you can obviously make it work but it's clearly never going to be as good a solution.
ANYONE who can't understand that ask yourself why did BMW feel a need to have multi piston calipers on the rear of the previous F series M cars which were also comparably lighter & less powerful cars…?
Sorry to go off topic but I get tired of the statements by those with zero mechanical understanding that are so willing to swallow & parrot whatever marketing bs they are fed.🙄
