On the occasion of the 75th birthday of the BMW 328, the German manufacturer revealed the special model 328 Hommage.

"In fact, they have created an icon that represents a milestone in automotive history."

The new 328 version Hommage follows the philosophy of history that makes del'equazione "low weight = high performance" one of his key concepts. E 'for this that if the original was constructed of aluminum and magnesium (the finest materials at the time) and weighed only 780 pounds, the 328 Hommage is made of carbon fiber, stronger, more stable and lightweight. Where the material has been worked on this special car, it is also visible: The CFRP becomes an aesthetic and functional. Under the bonnet lurks a 6-cylinder engine of 3000 cc. But it was not provided further guidance as to its characteristics.

But to honor the past, there are also noble leather, satin or polished and burnished aluminum (also combined with the internal CFRP), all expertly blended in a formula that expresses the essential character of the roadster and sport purist. Just as was the original 328. Even the alloy wheels of the BMW 328 Hommage bipartite reinterpret the distinctive design of the original circle hole.
