BMW 2002 Hommage Concept
The BMW Grouping has created a really limited car for the 2016 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este to pay protection to one of the about pregnant models in its account. Kickoff and firstly, the BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the over-the-top feats of technology buns the BMW 2002 turbo – and re-imagines them as a invention sketch for our multiplication.
“Just 50 geezerhood ago, the 02 ambit kick-started an era of succeeder for BMW. This press coupe is one of the vehicles which made the stain what it is now,” explains Adrian van Hooydonk, Aged V.p.

That set the varnish on the coupe as a unfeigned sports car. Concurrently, the 2002 turbo was at the technical avant-garde of locomotive growth at BMW. The BMW 2002 Hommage is our way of fostering a chalk to all these achievements.”

Historic details with a modern twist
Elysian by the touch chromium-plate peel that annulated the 02 in its day, a horizontal c ring wraps itself roughly the shoulderline of the BMW 2002 Hommage and splits the eubstance visually into break sections. The speed tranche of cap, cowling and rush lid has matted paintwork to forestall reflexion of the sun’s rays – in a character to racing cars of yore. The trunk’s lines hither are minimalist, understandably careworn and flow in nature. The frown division creates a definite counterpoint, with its high-gloss paintwork, identical sheer, sculpturesque surfaces, and classifiable lines that inculcate the flanks with a coeval relish and hooking the eye to the impelled back wheels. The Infinite Airstream Alloy paintwork drapes itself o’er the BMW 2002 Hommage comparable limpid metallic. In both its lusterlessness and glossary shape, the sparkle metal disconsolate ending changes in appearing from a bright fluorescent amytal to greyness, contingent the incidence of sparkle, and lends the surfacing a active signified of astuteness. As a solution, the car’s unit consistency brims with index and zip.
A peculiarly salient boast of the car’s flanks are the voluminously moulded roll arches, which anatomy the eubstance similar iv brackets and add height. In the summons, they recollect the homologated adaptation of the BMW 2002 turbo, which required large-minded extensions bolted onto its eubstance to suit a importantly wider racecourse. The Hommage car integrates this particular neatly into flanks intentional with crystallize loyalty to the job impending. Cunning surfacing and exactly chiselled lines enfold the herculean cycle arches and manus them a leading character. 20-inch light-alloy wheels in bi-colour invention round the styling as the car meets the route. The innovative looks of these extravagantly polished, multi-spoke items recollect the racing rims of gone eras, spell gold-colored bracken callipers mien the M logotype add an spare postage of course.
Fronted by 50 years of BMW history
The forepart of the BMW 2002 Hommage is a convinced and profusely dynamical function; its styling bridges a gap of 50 age in combination the feature, horizontal graphical of the 02 grasp with advanced elements of BMW pattern. The front is framed visually by the big roll arches. And the wide-cut raceway and low-slung eubstance furnish an rich sail for generously-sized surfaces. In its lines and manakin, the hood references the “fishgig” form stretch kill the heart of the 02 models that swells slimly into a besiege for the BMW logotype as it approaches the kidney wicket. Foster exact lines bestow construction and definition to the matted rise.
Occupying centre stage at the front end is the familiar BMW kidney grille
Hither, it takes the cast of a low-standing, attached whole, offer a frame tilt on the kidneys’ diachronic version as a cohesive designing constituent. Sculptured, melanize double-bars add discreetness to the details of the broad-set lattice. Comparable the BMW 2002, the BMW 2002 Hommage besides has two ace headlights that render the salient forepart with its outer limits. The headlights are bordered by reflectors, whose golden colour is a cursor to the “gilt” Fiftieth anniversary of the BMW 2002’s plunge. The reflectors too reprize the yellowness hue normally ground in the headlights of racing cars rachis in the day. An kept nigrify discase creates a appointment ocular program for the kidneys and headlights, brings unitedly the stylistic elements of the forepart and, in so doing, underlines the car’s full and gymnastic position. Those with a piercing eye volition likewise select the blinker repeaters, which – comparable those of the car’s forbear – are situated severally from the headlights and embedded into a full-width striptease (in c on the Hommage car) supra them.
The great movement proscenium, a stylistic nod to those models of the Seventies, shortens the optic outstrip betwixt the BMW 2002 Hommage and the route and shines a smart foreground on its driver stress. Collectively the car’s blanket, card-playing position, this technically innovational, forward-thinking conception sends out a content of top-class roadholding and manipulation style done flying corners. Now, as in the peak of the BMW 2002, innovation excellency and turbo engineering work unexceeded levels of fun to voluminous raceway tracks, nation roadstead and hatful passes similar. The BMW Motorsport bilious of the breast forestage and its “turbo” inscription in mirror composition casts the intellect dorsum to the master decals of the 2002 turbo, as does the outside mirror cap on the driver’s slope. Idiom surfaces in open c grade the period where the forepart forestage and english skirts deliver to the route, and too furnish a technically beguiling counterpoint to the body-coloured surfaces.
Bringing matters to a sporting conclusion
The rear-end conception of the BMW 2002 Hommage besides calls on elements of the 2002 turbo. E.g., the horizontal sub-division of the car’s generous surfaces and its open lines shuffle a width-emphasising and so fittingly dynamical assertion, tied with advanced feeling. The mannikin of the bum lights is divine by the like diachronic pattern. The well-nigh orthogonal lights render a stylistic edge for the backside. The crank covers get a coeval black-panel feel and alone pass a panorama of the interior works when the lights illumine. All you can see when they are sleeping is an unploughed lightlessness coat. As at the figurehead of the car, this strengthens the belief of a disrobe intent round the car.
The BMW logotype to the compensate of the numberplate betwixt the two bottom lights is alike a feature constituent of 02 bum styling. The hefty bike arches bookend the behind subdivision and punctuate the all-inclusive racetrack, spell exact despoiler lips fetch a modernistic butt to the car’s particularisation. A c diffusor integrates the now intimate two sets of mate tucker tailpipes and wraps up the backside styling with a clean expand.
BMW’s impudent rendition of the BMW 2002 adopts the manikin of a contract sports coupe in the classic custom of BMW Hommage cars. But more that, the BMW 2002 Hommage represents a crystallise affirmation of how saturated drive joy is outlined in 2016.
