BMW 328 Hommage

Like the Aston Martin at the top, this is another vehicle whose looks were inspired by a legendary car from times gone by. And, like the Aston Martin, it really does its predecessor justice. The BMW 328 was one of the best-selling sports cars of the 1930s, and the Hommage concept was created to celebrate its 75th anniversary. It looks amazing and is, like the original 328, an open-top. It features a 3liter straight-six engine, with a modern-day adaptation of the car's kidney grille at the front and a suitably chunky rear end. The Hommage is made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic, so is like most of the concept cars on this list much lighter than most of those we see on our roads today. It was unveiled at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy in 2011.
