The BMW Group has created a very special car to pay tribute to one of the most significant models in its history. The BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the extraordinary feats of engineering behind the BMW 2002 turbo – and reimagines them as a design study for our times. The sporting silhouette of the vehicle lies low against the road. Its compact proportions, complete with long wheelbase, short overhangs and prominent “shark nose”, promise a driving experience that thrills with irresistible dynamics and agility. Aerodynamic details like the large spoilers at the front and rear team up with the profusion of air intakes to optimize airflow around the car and maximize downforce in every driving situation. The front end of the BMW 2002 Hommage is a confident and extravagantly dynamic affair; its styling bridges a gap of 50 years in combining the characteristic, horizontal graphic of the 02 range with modern elements of BMW Design. In its lines and form, the bonnet references the “spear” contour stretching down the centre of the 02 models that swells slightly into a surround for the BMW logo as it approaches the kidney grille. Further precise lines lend structure and definition to the matt surface.
