The BMW M1 is a car that’s remarkable for a few reasons, it was to be BMW’s first mid-engined car and quickly became one of the most iconic supercars of the late 1970s. Originally co-developed as a joint BMW-Lamborghini automobile, BMW quickly took over the project and applied strict German precision to all elements of the car’s engineering.
BMW built the M1 from 1978 through till 1981, 453 were made in total, including 20 that were built specifically for the BMW M1 Procar Championship. The styling of the M1 was created by Giorgetto Giugiaro – in fact it’s a textbook example of the now iconic Giugiaro design.
