2011 BMW 328 HOMMAGE CONCEPT
The BMW 328?s success was the result of its design parameters through the use of systematic lightweight construction, aerodynamic lines, opti-mum engine types and outstanding suspension technology, it laid the foundation stone for a new vehicle concept, by which performance only leads to success if combined with perfect harmonisation of all parameters and maximum efficiency.
In 2011 the dream sports car is celebrating its 75th birthday. The festivities will begin near Lake Como at the Mille Miglia. There, the main focus will be on the fascination of the BMW328 racing car. A week later at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the two-seater’s functional aesthetics will be the focusof attention. In this area of conflict be-tweentradition and modernity, the BMW Group is paying tribute to the BMW 328 on the occasion of its anniversary with a special model the BMW 328 HommageConcept. The BMW 328 Hommage translates the principles and the character of the vehicle of that time into present times and offers a possible interpretation of how the designers of that time, Fritz Fiedler and Rudolf Schleicher, might have built the BMW 328 in the present day using currenttechnology.
2011 OAKLEY DESIGN LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR LP760-2 EXTREME CAR
60 horsepower will be added by Oakley Design for the V12 engine‘s output and to trade the all-wheel-drive system for a more dramatic Diablo-reminiscent rear-wheel-drive setup.
Oakley Design estimates the removal of the front differential, drive shafts and associated front drivetrain parts will reduce kerb weight by around 85kilograms. The tuners believe the Aventador’s advanced suspension designand very stiff full carbon monocoque should be able to handle 760horsepower with just rear-wheel-drive. Nonetheless, to improve grip, the rear wheels will be wider. The company is also working on developing several suspension upgrade alternatives with Intrax.
Oakley Design will offer extensive modifications to the car’s looks as well. Along with an aero kit, the package will include carbon fiber door mirrors and engine bay covers, plus a black carbon roof.
