  • BMW Homage 2002 to Pay Tribute to 50 years of Compact Cars

A new BMW is all set to pay tribute to 50 years of excellence of BMW compact cars.

Before all the M3 and 3 series models, BMW had a classic range of compact cars named as 02 series that started in 1966. The new BMW Homage will be giving tribute to the 50 years of compact cars made by BMW. This car will be displayed in this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. 

The 02 series were the pioneer in turbo engineering thus marking the start of this kind of excellent designing. The 2002 was one of the first series produced cars all around the world. 

This new Homage 2002 has a beautiful eye catching design. According to the head of Designs of BMW, this car is actually an iconic vehicle in the history of BMW.

This car showcases the turbo design that brings about the motor sports generation. Along with that it provides one with an exclusive joy of wonderful drive in an exquisite looking vehicle. 

“Exactly 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,” explains Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.

“The 2002 sat at the top of the range and was the first series-produced car anywhere in Europe to come with turbo technology. That set the seal on the coupe as a genuine sports car. At the same time, the 2002 turbo was at the technological vanguard of engine development at BMW. The BMW 2002 Hommage is our way of raising a glass to all these achievements.”

The silhouette of this Homage BMW 2000 lies above against the ground. It has a “Shark nose” type front giving it a feisty look. The standard and iconic front grills give a beautiful lift to the front features. This car has excellent aerodynamic details that make the drive easy along with fast speed.

This car has looks that are a combination of classic turbo cars and the new ones. The hood, roof and rear of the car are given matte color in order to avoid reflection of sun rays.

The sporty paint that is applied to the Homage is available in both glossy and matte finishing. The car’s color is metallic blue that can be found in brightly fluorescent blue to grey. This concept is yet to go in the workshop. However it is the perfect picture of a modernized turbo car. 

“The eye-catching design of the BMW 2002 Hommage employs a very dynamic, striking use of forms for its own take on what is, for me, one of the most iconic vehicles in BMW history,” says Karim Habib, Head of Design BMW Automobiles.

“At the same time, it encapsulates BMW’s major motor sport triumphs, which were made possible by turbo technology. As such, the Hommage car brings together the past and future of BMW into a confident statement of unadulterated driving joy.”
