The Mille Miglia is one of the most prestigious races in history. The road race today comes in many forms but back in the day it was all about who got to the finish first and that meant averaging a high top speed. Till this day BMW hold the record set in 1940 by their 328. 75 years later and the race bred machine hits the twenty-first century with a bang.
The is the BMW 328 Hommage and it has to be one of the most beautiful designs on wheels not just this decade but ever. Somehow the clash of old and new forms this angelic carbon fibre based sculpture that is just awe-inspiring. Taking elements from the original car make it undoubtabley its modern day incarnation. The 328 is powered by a 3.0 litre 6 cylinder engine and its wide aggressive stance dominates the road beneath it.
Sadly BMW has no intentions to build this car to a number any greater than one but then I guess like diamonds thinks of rare beauty are hard to obtain.
