BMW's 2002 Hommage concept had some members of Roadshow's staff scratching their heads when it was unveiled earlier this year. However, I think it looks much better in the "Turbomeister" livery showcased at this week's Monterey Car Week events.
The "Turbomeister" schema is a reinterpretation of the Jagermeister livery that graced the 2002 Turbo racing car in the 1970s. The new concept keeps the style but ditches the boozey branding and stag's head crest.
The orange and black concept pays homage to the 2002 Turbo, but is based on the current sports coupe.
The Jagermeister stag has been replaced with a Turbomeister crest, but the mirrored "TURBO" on the chin spoiler remains intact.
Like all of BMW's Hommage concepts, this one is more about styling than performance, so there aren't many details about hardware.
Much of the equipped go-faster goodies appear to be a blend of stock M2 gear (like these brakes) and one-off concept customs (like the wheels).
The 2002 Hommage's bodywork is dramatically flared to make the sport compact sit wide and low. Much of the skin is carbon fiber composite that is hidden by orange paint.
Being a race concept, the Turbomeister comes equipped with track safety equipment, such as tow points.
