BMW, NEW SUPERCAR RUMOURS — BY MR ON JUNE 20, 2012 AT 1:05 AM — NO COMMENTS
According to a report in the German magazine Autobild, BMW is planning a remake of the M1. Four years ago, the Germans demonstrated that a new version is possible by releasing the M1 Hommage.
The original M1 was a joint venture between different companies, BMW developed and engineered the technical components. The body was designed by Giorgio Giugiaro of ItalDesign. The first BMW with the now famous “M” in its name was launched in late 1978. With a top speed of 265km/h it was the fastest road-going car built in Germany. The M1 accelerated from standstill to 100km/h in less than six seconds, and a sprint to 200km/h took a mere 20 seconds.
