A BMW Tribute to Turbo

Wayback Machine

BMW 2002 Hommage celebrates the birth of the turbocharged car. Though it’s a tribute to the 1973 BMW 2002 Turbo, it’s based on the current BMW M2 sports coupe.

Like most of BMW’s Hommage concepts, it’s all about styling over hardware and the flashy 2002 has plenty in the form of custom wheels and stock M2 treatments.

The “Turbomeister” concept sports a colorful skin inspired by the Jagermeister-sponsored racing cars of the 1970s – but instead of the booze brand’s signature buck, there’s a more refined Turbomeister crest.

The most literal reference to the original 2002, the 2002 Hommage features a unifying “waterline” that connects many of the car’s formal elements. This unbroken carbon fiber line physically wraps around the car from front to rear, while also creating a horizontal distinction between upper and lower body surfaces.
