BMW has unveiled an all-new concept car called the 328 Hommage, it is a two-seater sports car is designed to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the BMW 328 racecar.

The new BMW sport car makes extensive use of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic, a material already used by BMW in the M6 and M3. The BMW 328 Hommage gets an extremely wide and flat front end with generous surfaces and a powerful appearance. The rear has a particularly angular tail, with lights that echo the look of the Vision ED eco-supercar that’s earmarked for production. A carbon fiber bonnet and low-reaching sidewalls will ensure an excellent stability for the 328 on the road.

The lightweight 328 original weighed just 780kgs and BMW has concentrated on keeping weight down in the Hommage. The body is made from carbon-reinforced plastic, the same material used in the i3 electric car and the stripped out cabin is simple and driver-focused.

The BMW 328 Hommage will be powered by a 3.0-litre straight-six engine, but BMW hasn’t revealed any official statistics or performance figures.

The interior gets fine leather, matte and high-gloss black polished aluminum and numerous details derived from motor racing, offering a hint of the BMW 328’s most successful motor sports career.

The BMW 328 Hommage is unlikely to make production, but expect to see BMW’s future models, including the i8 hybrid supercar getting a look inspired by the newcomer.
