BMW M1 – the forgotten supercar

The BMW M1 Supercar was only produced for 4 years and came close to never reaching production.

The project was financed by BMW so that they could embark on GT class racing worldwide.

Lamborghini were chosen to build the car and the design was by Giorgetto Giugiaro, a great recipe. Unfortunately Lamborghini went into financial meltdown part way through the project so BMW had to seize all the work in progress and finish it themselves.

Despite the problems throughout its development, the car is stunning and a great part of BMW’s history. Mid engined, 3.5 litre straight six with sublime styling make this a timeless car. Owning one of the 399 road cars may prove to be challenging, we can only find one for sale here with a POA attached..
