BMW 2002 Hommage Returns For Pebble Beach

BMW Updates 2002 Hommage With Racing Livery For Pebble Beach

At the Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, BMW is bringing their 2002 Hommage model.

The 2002 Turbo is essentially the M2's Great Grandfather, so there's a natural lineage with the Hommage's awesome turbocharged straight-six despite it packing an extra 1000cc over the original car's 2-litre motor.

Moreover, its body mostly made of carbon composites, while the concept is said to be based on the M2 chassis despite the front is more squared than the M2.

BMW Updates 2002 Hommage With Racing Livery For Pebble Beach

It's meant to celebrate BMW's relationship with the turbocharged auto, as the original 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo "became the first series-produced vehicle in Europe to feature turbo technology".

'With its iconic orange/black paintwork, the vehicle has a colour scheme and livery synonymous in the minds of many motor sport fans with the triumphs of the 1970s'. The headlights' reflective gold coloring is a pointer to the "golden" 50th anniversary of the BMW 2002's launch. That means that the front end is characterized by a pointed "shark nose", a gloss black kidney grille and headlight clusters with bright gold accents, created to mimic the yellowish-tinge of race cars of yesteryear. The "Turbomeister" livery appears to be inspired by Jagermeister's racing sponsorship in the 1970s. The large front apron is another nod to the 70s. The glass covers have a contemporary black-panel look and only offer a view of the inner workings when the lights illuminate. At the back, the blacked-out tail-light clusters form part of the "waterline", so unless they're on, you can't even see where they are. This, too, is characteristic element of 02 rear styling.
