To celebrate the 75th birthday of the original BMW 328, one of the most successful and iconic sports cars of the 1930's, BMW has produced this one-off BMW 328 Hommage design/technology showcase model. “With the BMW 328 Hommage, we wish to pay homage to the passion and inventiveness of the fathers of the BMW 328”, explains Karl Bäumer, CEO of BMW Group Classic.
The BMW 328 Hommage translates the principles and the character of the vehicle of that time into present times and offers a possible interpretation of how the designers of that time, Fritz Fiedler and Rudolf Schleicher, might have built the BMW 328 in the present day using current technology (i.e. exterior and interior in CFRP). Check out the full press release and photos below.
