One of the stars of this year’s Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este, without a question or shadow of doubt, is the BMW 2002 Hommage concept. The car has a self-explanatory name, but in case you haven’t got it yet, it honors the memory of the original 2002 Turbo dating back to the Sixties and Seventies. And it does it in style.
In this video we get a closer look at the BMW 2002 Hommage and hear it exhaust note. We also see it on the move which is where you start wondering if its an homage to the original 2002, what’s with that massive size and Bangle-esque design features?
BMW remains tightlipped about the technical details of the 2002 Hommage, which could make it into limited production. What they can’t stop talking about is the design: “The eye-catching design of the BMW 2002 Hommage employs a very dynamic, striking use of forms for its own take on what is, for me, one of the most iconic vehicles in BMW history,” says Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles. “At the same time, it encapsulates BMW’s major motor sport triumphs, which were made possible by turbo technology. As such, the Hommage car brings together the past and future of BMW into a confident statement of unadulterated driving joy.”
