To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the original BMW 328 roadster of the 1930’s, BMW has unveiled their incomparable 328 Hommage Concept car. Focusing on some of the key features adorning this Bavarian beauty, the 328 Hommage employs a straight six-cylinder powerplant and iconic kidney-shaped BMW grille stretched upright in dramatic fashion. The interior and exterior of the 328 are comprised heavily of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic and features no doors, only deep recesses for would-be passengers to enter in and out of.
Elegantly gracing the inside of the 328 Hommage are fine leather, matte and high-gloss black polished aluminum. Additionally, the 328 features, or doesn’t depending on your take, a sparse instrument panel that is dominated by only one round instrument-and a redesigned rev counter with other useful information such as oil temperature, oil pressure, and water temperature.
No specific powertrain details have been revealed apart from 3.0-liter engine under the hood. It can be assumed, however, that with the ultra lightweight carbon fiber body–weighing in at just 1,719 pounds–335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque twin-turbocharged mill from the 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe, the 328 has the potential to be a rocket off the blocks.
