BMW 2002 Hommage

BMW has been building hommage cars for years now. They’re teases that let us know the designers remember what was great about BMW design past, even if that’s not always obvious in the new cars. The latest tribute car is this 2002 Hommage, which makes its debut at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este this weekend. Like past hommage cars, the 2002 is more about design than mechanicals. BMW doesn’t even mention what theoretically powers this car, and frankly we don’t care. There are clues, however, from the classic livery, which includes an M tri-color front splitter with “obrut” ghosted over it, similar to the reversed text on the original ’02 Turbo. We’ll guess it’s a powerful turbocharged engine under the hood, whatever the specifics are.
