At the 2016 Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach, the BMW Grouping is presenting the BMW 2002 Hommage to refulgence the glare cover concluded its successful account with turbocharged engines. In 1973 the BMW 2002 turbo became the get-go series-produced fomite in Europe to lineament turbo engineering. In so doing, it sour the BMW 02 into a full-blood sports car. Look dorsum, the coming of BMW turbo locomotive engineering pointed the way for both the evolution of the sportiest BMW sedans and milestones such as the offset Convention One Humankind Title style for a turbocharged car – won by Nelson Picket in 1983.
“The BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the over-the-top feats of technology on which BMW turbo engineering is based and re-interprets them in the mannikin of a figure sketch,” says Karim Habib, Header of Invention BMW Automobiles. “With its iconic orangeness/inkiness paintwork, the car has a gloss strategy and bilious synonymous in the minds of many motive play fans with the triumphs of the Seventies.”

A confident statement of unadulterated driving joy
The clean silhouette of the BMW 2002 Hommage lies low against the route. Its squeeze proportions; nail with yearn wheelbase, brusk overhangs and large “shark wind”, call a impulsive receive that thrills with resistless kinetics and nimbleness. Streamlined details care the enceinte spoilers at the battlefront and backside team with the profuseness of air intakes and exits to optimize airflow roughly the car and maximize downforce in every drive spot.

Historical details with a forward-looking turn
A especially impinging boast of the car’s flanks are the marked pedal arches, which bod the eubstance alike foursome brackets and add height. In the treat, they recollect the homologated reading of the BMW 2002 turbo, which needful large-minded extensions bolted onto its consistency to fit a importantly wider running. The Hommage car integrates this particular neatly. Satiny surfacing and exactly chiselled lines enfold the muscular cycle arches and mitt them a prima part.
In maybe the nigh actual address of the master 2002, the 2002 Hommage features a consolidative “waterline” to link many of the car’s conventional elements. This unplowed c character job physically wraps round the car from battlefront to arse, spell likewise creating a horizontal preeminence ‘tween amphetamine and frown personify surfaces. 20-inch light-alloy wheels in bi-colour invention round the styling as the car meets the route. The forward-looking looks of these richly polished, multi-spoke items callback the racing rims of foregone eras, spell gold-colored bracken callipers mien the M logotype add an excess seal of year.
Fronted by 50 years of BMW history
The front of the BMW 2002 Hommage is a positive and copiously active amour; its styling bridges a gap of 50 geezerhood in combination the feature, horizontal grille vivid of the 02 serial with modernistic elements of BMW innovation. In its lines and mannequin, the cowling references the “gig” configuration stretch polish the gist of the 02 models that swells slenderly into a environs for the BMW logotype as it approaches the kidney lattice. Advance exact lines loan construction and definition to the lustrelessness rise.
Occupying inwardness phase at the front is the conversant BMW kidney wicket. Hither, it takes the cast of a low-standing, attached whole, offer a build tilt on the kidneys’ diachronic interpreting as a cohesive pattern factor. Graven, lightlessness double-bars add discreetness to the details of the broad-set wicket. Comparable the BMW 2002, the BMW 2002 Hommage too has two unity rung headlights that allow the contact forepart with its outer limits. The headlights’ broody amber color is a cursor to the “favorable” Fiftieth anniversary of the BMW 2002’s plunge. The headlights likewise repeat the white-livered hue unremarkably institute in the headlamps of racing cars cover in the day. An unploughed horizontal inkiness banding unites the designing elements of the front and in so doing, underlines the car’s wide-cut and gymnastic position. Those with a lancinate eye bequeath besides discern the blinker repeaters, which – same those of the car’s forbear – are placed singly from the headlights and embedded in the wrap-around c character waterline constituent.
The heavy movement forestage, a stylistic and usable flowing nod to those models of the Seventies, shortens the optic length ‘tween the BMW 2002 Hommage and the route. Conjointly the car’s blanket, sporty posture, this technically advanced, forward-thinking figure sends out a content of top-class roadholding and manipulation flare done fasting corners. Now, as in the peak of the BMW 2002, designing excellency and turbo engineering land unexcelled levels of fun to voluminous subspecies tracks, land roadstead and flock passes similar. The “turbo” inscription in mirror authorship on the figurehead forestage casts the psyche cover to the pilot decals of the 2002 turbo. Emphasis surfaces in open c cross the gunpoint where the battlefront forestage and incline skirts deliver to the route, and besides render a technically beguiling counterpoint to the body-coloured surfaces.
Bringing matters to a sporting conclusion
The rear-end invention 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 shuffling a width-emphasising and therefore befittingly dynamical assertion, tied with innovative feeling. The nigh orthogonal lights cater a stylistic delimitation for the bottom. The deoxyephedrine covers get a modern-day black-panel face and sole go a panorama of the internal works when the lights illume. All you can see when they are sleeping is an unploughed inkiness coat. As at the figurehead of the car, this strengthens the picture of a airstrip engrossed round the car. The asymmetrical BMW logotype location to the rightfulness of the numberplate ‘tween the two bum lights is alike a feature ingredient of 02 ass styling. The powerful bicycle arches bookend the arse incision and accent the all-embracing racecourse, spell a exact despoiler lip brings a forward-looking sharpness to the car’s particularization. A c diffusor integrates the now associate two sets of match beat tailpipes and wraps up the bottom styling with a betting boom.
BMW’s impertinent reading of the BMW 2002 adopts the shape of a squeeze sports coupe in the classic custom of BMW Hommage cars. But more that, the BMW 2002 Hommage represents a crystallise assertion of how complete impulsive delight is outlined in 2016.
