The BMW 328 is one of the greatest cars that ever came out of this fabled brand’s stable. Made from 1936 to 1940, this car was ahead of its time, winning the Mille Miglia in 1938 and stamping its class all over its rivals. Now, in commemoration of this car’s 75th year anniversary, BMW created the 2011 BMW 328 Hommage.
The BMW 328 Hommage is in essence, a version of the legendary 328 using the technological advances of this era. A modern interpretation of the original design by Fritz Fiedler and Rudolf Schleicher, it incorporates the essence of the original in many ways.
This roadster’s body is made mostly of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), which gives this car a weight of 1720 pounds, an incredible value for any car of any era. The design cues of this car are created to make the impression of being flat, wide, and dynamic.
A race car inspired interior composed of carbon fiber, aluminum, and leather reminds those inside the car of its heritage. A 3.0 liter straight-6 engine was used to propel this concept, and light alloy wheels plants this car to the ground.
While this car is almost sure to never make it to the assembly line, the 2011 BMW 328 Hommage has accomplished its mission: to pay homage to one historic BMW vehicle, the legendary 328.
