Even at the Concorso d’Eleganza, BMW has not shared the performance details of the BMW 328 Hommage Concept. We know that BMW fitted the BMW 328 Hommage Concept with a 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine.

The body of the BMW 328 Hommage Concept, as well as the majority of the interior features, is made of new material called “Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP)”, which means that the weight of the BMW 328 Hommage Concept has been kept to a minimum (780 kilos or 1,720 lbs). Must be new kind of diet proposed by the BMW.

Adrian van Hooydonk – BMW Group Director of Design says, “The Hommage cars have been a long tradition in the BMW Group. Based on our design philosophy “Rooted in history, moving forward in design”, they demonstrate the significance of history for the present. Even 75 years ago, before we had the idea to create the BMW 328 Hommage Concept, the BMW 328 stood for sportiness ad agility through lightweight construction. The BMW 328 Hommage Concept pays tribute to this past and shows how BMW lightweight construction will develop. Carbon is the material of the future.”
