BMW Debuts 328 Hommage Concept

2011 Geneva Motor Show

BMW has just unveiled something very special at last weekend's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. Taking inspiration from the classic BMW 328 from the 1930s, the 328 Hommage two-seat roadster is a modern interpretation of the classic sports car. Based off the Vision Connected Drive Concept revealed earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show, the 328 Hommage combines distinctive carbon fiber and lightweight construction through the use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

Total weight: 1,720 pounds. The original 328 was composed of aluminum and magnesium, both of which were state-of-the-art materials for their time. In fact, this car was one of the first BMWs to feature the now standard kidney grille design. The concept's interior is adorned with fine leather, matte and high-gloss black polished aluminum and more CFRP. Power comes from a 3.0-liter six-cylinder, but BMW hasn't released any numbers regarding power output. Transmission information was also not revealed. As of now, BMW hasn't given any indication whether or not they'll green light it for production.
