As BMW tests its new LMDh prototype for the 2023 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, it’ll sport camouflage.

[IMSA GTP is back]

However, it’s not the typical camo used in testing. The BMW Group Designworks’ mosaic contains tributes to several iconic race cars while concealing the prototype’s shape.

These cars include:

  • 1976 BMW 3.0 CSL
  • 1978 BMW 320i Turbo
  • 1981 BMW M1/C: First purpose-built IMSA GTP car.
  • 1986 BMW GTP
  • BMW M3 E36 GTS-2
  • BMW Z4 GTLM
  • BMW M8 GTE

Can you find elements of those cars in the design?
