The BMW M1 was the first ever mid-engined BMW. The M1 supercar was powered by a 3.5 litre 6 cylinder engine producing around 277 bhp, although turbocharged racing versions were capable of 850 horsepower.

Built by the world renowned 'M' division of BMW, the BMW M1 was built as for homologation purposes to allow the car to compete in official racing events.

The body of the M1 was designed by Giugiaro and the chassis was tuned by Lamborghini. Only 456 examples of the BMW M1 were produced. Fit and finnish of the M1 was exemplary and the handling was superb, yet the car did not prove to be a great success on the race track.

Review by: James Sit
The BMW M1 from 1978 to 1981 was a great supercar starting point for BMW, however being designed by Giugiaro there was a price and a deadline that BMW missed. In this sense the awesome German car developers broke into Lamborghini and stole the body design and started production late. Even late the M1 was a groundbreaking car for BMW and automotive history.
Hope this helped and/or entertained you. - Jim
