BMW 328 Hommage

The BMW 328 Hommage concept was created in honor of the 75th anniversary of the venerable BMW 328, considered by many to be not only the best-looking sport cars of the 1930s but also one of the most successful on the track. The BMW 328 was the embodiment of everything the BMW brand still stands for todaydynamics, aesthetics and a high level of innovation.

In its day, the BMW 328 was noted for its lightweight design, powerful inline six-cylinder engine and responsive handling. The BMW 328 Hommage is the modern embodiment of those attributes. Its expressive exterior design is the modern interpretation of the emotional and dynamic two-seater built 75 years ago.

Translating the idea of lightweight construction into this day and age, most of the exterior and interior of the BMW 328 Hommage are made of carbon fiberreinforced plastic, which offers the best balance between weight and strength. In order to highlight the use of this cutting-edge material, the majority of this CFRP is visible to the eye.

The instrument panel is fitted with two iPhones located in special holders, which offer additional display functions for the driver and co-driver. The iPhones function as stopwatches for measuring lap times as well as digital roadbooks. Using two iPhones, both functions can be operated at the same time.

As did its predecessor, the 328 Hommage uses BMWs most powerful inline six-cylinder engine, continuing another long-standing BMW tradition.
