BMW feels like they have done enough cool things for one year unveiling the BMW 2002 Hommage at Villa d’Este a few months back. So for the Pebble Beach Concours they are bringing along the same car, only they have given it a nice new dress.

The dress adorning the BMW 2002 Hommage for Pebble Beach is a livery with remarkable historic significance. It pays tribute to the original BMW 2002 turbo from 1973, the first series-produced vehicle in Europe to feature turbo technology. So the two-tone red and black paint work on this car are adorned with special “02” and “Turbomesiter” graphics, words that are unbelievably sexy to a BMW aficionado.

The unique liver also complements the one-of-a-kind design of BMW 2002 Hommage which is caricaturized version of the original 2002 what with the box-like profile, the flat nose and bottom, and the placement of the kidney grilles. Of course the modern version is bigger, bulkier, and has a lot more presence than the original, but you get the gist.

The BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the extraordinary feats of engineering on which BMW turbo technology is based and re-interprets them in the form of a design study,” says Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles. “With its iconic orange/black paintwork, the car has a colour scheme and livery synonymous in the minds of many motor sport fans with the triumphs of the 1970s.”
