The BMW 328 Hommage made its world debut at the Villa d’Este COncorso d’Eleganza this past weekend. This car was designed to echo the automaker’s 1930s racing car on its 75th anniversary. The 328 Hommage weighs just over 1,700 lbs thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber.

While the look of the car is undoubtedly futuristic, design cues like the lack of doors and ultra-light wheels are meant to evoke the pre-WWII era BMW 328 sports car. One of the more interesting modern touches is the addition of two Apple iPhones in place of the  instrument cluster, and can also be used as GPS units in addition to stopwatches for timing laps and other endeavors. The 328 will get its official debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
