2011 BMW 328 Hommage – Click above to view video after the jump

Last week at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este, BMW unleashed its lovely 328 Hommage on the world as a tribute to its legendary 1936 328, the car that still holds the fastest average speed ever achieved at the Mille Miglia. This week, they've pumped out a video of the car in motion, disguised as a behind-the-scenes look at its California photo shoot. As you might expect, the video just serves confirm our earlier conclusion: this car has some beautiful details.

For those who need a refresher course, here's how the numbers break down: The 328 Hommage tips the scales at just over 1,700 pounds thanks to the use of carbon fiber-reinforced plastics. Pushing that scant poundage around is BMW's venerated inline six, backed up by a mystery transmission. To ogle the video, click past the jump.

      The title of this article would imply that the 328 Hommage is sexy even when it's not in motion, which is highly arguable in my opinion.

      sexy, not in the traditional sense. maybe in a young Ellen Barkin kind of way but not in a Stephanie Seymour way. I'm drawn to it somehow. I think if they had done a design more traditional, it would have had too much Z4 in it, or it would have looked too copycat to the SLC. So, I get it, I like it, but more raw retro than silky sexy

        It's not sexy, and it's definitely not retro. This looks more like the lovechild of a Chrysler Crossfire and a groundhog than a real BMW 328.

      Is the irony lost on everyone that a car that's supposed to be a modern interpretation of a late 1930s BMW built in Nazi Germany uses the French spelling homage.

      Love it... It's very unique, has style, and has an air of hand-craftedness

      You know what that looks like? The killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

      Please,no more, I'm nauseous. Beauty (and sexy) really is in the eye of the beholder. I'm not seeing either.

      I think it looks great...except for the buck-toothed beaver teeth in the front. Fix that and we're in biz. Agreed on the 5Gt...whatta dumb vehicle. Its their Aztek
