BMW 328 Hommage.

Interesting—-i loved the Mille Miglia concept a few years ago—this continues the look back on history.  I don’t feel it is particularly a nice design, however I like certain features which kick back to the past like the leather straps and the ‘bucktooth’ kidney grille in the front.  BMW, design-wise, have become a shell of their former self in the past 10-15 years, in my opinion—-and I don’t think it will hurt them at all to look at their historical past for inspiration.  Here’s hoping they bring the proper design cues which made them so glorious from the 60s through early 90s back.

This car weighs just around 1700+ pounds! Lightweight engineering, that is something to love.

    Eesh. It looks like a dead beaver (2 buck teeth with X’ed out eyes like in the old western movies). I do like a few features on it, but that front end is hidious and evokes nothing of its lineage.

  2. it’s far from perfect, and the front end is awkward to say the least, but in profile i like it – quite a lot, actually – and think it has a lot of promise.

    we need bradley to give this one the “automobiliac proposes…” treatment.
