Hommage is a pastiche of old & new. Retro shape with contemporary styling.

MM 2006 is influenced by Z4 ... since the underpinnings come from the Z4.
And more: MM 2006 was penned & designed by same guy as Z4 - Anders Warming (now Head of exterior design BMW Automobiles).






Important notice:

To understand the original M1, and its tribute / hommage (the M1 Hommage concept) please read this:
