Drive Wire: BMW Does Retro Right

BMW has built a design homage to their legendary 2002 sedan. The design is heavily influenced by the 2002 turbo, with mirrored “turbo” lettering on the front splitter and the side-weighted roundel on the rear fascia. Of course any modern iteration of the ‘02 would be turbocharged, but there’s no indication that this gorgeous little tribute is destined for production. This handsome hunk of wishful thinking debuted at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este this past weekend, leaving BMW owners wanting more.
