The BMW 2002 Hommage25/05/2016
The BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the extraordinary features of engineering behind the BMW 2002 turbo and re-imagines them as a design study for our times. 50 years ago, the 02 range kick-started an era of success for BMW, this compact coupe is one of the vehicles which made the brand what it is today. The 2002 sat at the top of the range and was the first series-produced car anywhere in Europe to come with turbo technology which set the seal on the coupe as a genuine sports car and therefore the BMW 2002 Hommage is their way of raising a glass to all these achievements.
The eye-catching design of the BMW 2002 Hommage employs a very dynamic, striking use of forms for its own take on what is, one of the most iconic vehicles in BMW history. At the same time, it encapsulates BMW’s major motor sport triumphs, which were made possible by turbo technology.
The sporting silhouette of the BMW 2002 Hommage lies low against the road. Its compact proportions, complete with long wheelbase, short overhangs and prominent 'shark' nose promise a driving experience that thrills with irresistible dynamics and agility.
Aerodynamic details like the large spoilers at the front and rear team up with the profusion of air intakes to optimise airflow around the car and maximise down force in every driving situation.
A particularly striking feature are the voluminously moulded wheel arches, which frame the body like four brackets and add stature. 20-inch light-alloy wheels in bi-colour design round off the styling as the car meets the road. The modern looks of these lavishly milled, multi-spoke items recall the racing rims of bygone eras, while gold-coloured brake callipers bearing the M logo add an extra stamp of class.
BMW’s fresh interpretation of the BMW 2002 adopts the form of a compact sports coupe in the classical tradition of BMW Hommage cars - but more than that, the BMW 2002 Hommage represents a clear statement of how pure driving pleasure is defined in 2016.
