The BMW T1 Motorsport concept is a creation of Miroslav
Dimitrov, a Coventry University Transport Design graduate
currently working in Italy for one of the most prestigious
car manufacturers in the world.
The BMW T1 Motorsport is a supercar
devoted to BMW’s Motorsport success.
The BMW T1 Motorsport is a supercar designed to celebrate
BMW's achievements in motorsport.
The BMW T1 Motorsport was originally planned more like
GT sports car, but the final result was a pure supercar
powered by a mid-mounted engine V12. The concept features
a lightweight carbon
fibre monocoque chassis, double wishbone suspension
- front and rear. The exhaust pipes are positioned at
the back-top of the car just above the suspension and
the engine bay - like F1 race cars.
The T1 Motorsport has an unusual feature built into the
roof panel and windscreen. The panel is hinged at the
front of the chassis – just in front of the windscreen.
When entering or exiting the car this panel lifts-up,
at the same time the doors open sideways in a conventional
manner - this setup ensures easy access to the interior.
To keep the whole carbon-fibre chassis working as a single
rigid shell, when closed this panel integrates completely
with the carbon fibre chassis and the body of the concept.
The interior of the BMW T1 Motorsport concept is inspired
by mechanical components and parts - it is balanced between
innovation, design and functionality. The interior is
upholstered and trimmed in white & blue colors, and is
designed to offer the best experience and performance
for the driver.
The T1 Motorsport concept is finished in plain white only,
with racing stickers including the M-Power motorsport
If the BMW T1 Motorsport were to be manufactured it would
be in a limited run of just 499 units. 400 units available
for the market, 99 units factory homologated for racing
activities. Maximum speed would exceed 230 mph (370 km/h).
