BMW has unveiled a special concept car at his year's Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este event in Italy. Called the BMW 328 Homage, it pays tribute and celebrates the 75th anniversary of the original BMW 328 classic of the late 1930s.

BMW-328-Hommage-Concept

The car looks very futuristic with its unusual front end layout. Mesh is placed behind the entire face to give it a very distinct look. It also showcases a strange headlight design and a large carbon fibre 'X' nose.

It's not all futuristic though. The 328 Homage brings back the twin elongated kidney grille setup similar to the original it's modelled on. It also shows a separated twin windscreen layout.

It appears the concept is based on the EfficientDynamics concept, showcasing the same long bonnet and drawn-back seating. Almost all of the body is made from carbon fibre, which BMW says is considerably lighter and more rigid than aluminium.

The original 1930s 328's upper door sills dip down very low, but instead of having actual doors, the concept has them removed to offer a similar style. The back includes the same mesh background as the front, behind the wedged-in and cut-off rear layout.

BMW hasn't released specific details on the BMW 328 Homage's powertrain, although it is said to be powered by a 3.0-litre straight six of some description.
