BMW has unveiled its latest concept for this weekend's Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, a modern take on the legendary 2002. Launched 50 years ago, the 2002 quickly became one of BMW most successful models and was the first series-produced car in Europe to feature a turbocharged engine. 

The 2002 Hommage sits low with an aggressive shark nose-style frontend, smaller proportions, and a longer wheelbase that all comes together in a silhouette that looks quick, even as it idles. Inspired by the trademark chrome strip, BMW added a modern twist with a carbon band that is slung around the shoulderband of the car. 

A matte and gloss paint scheme plays with light in a unique way, giving the impression of depth and a finish that takes on a fluorescent blue or grey color depending on the light. The car's headlights also pay tribute to the 2002's Golden Anniversary with gold-colored reflectors.
