The Other M(1)

16 Jun

Yesterday we showed one of BMW’s most coveted cars of the modern era – the 1M.

Here is an M creation from 3 decades ago. Built in conjunction with Lamborghini for homoloized racing purposes. Only 456 were ever made so seeing one in the flesh is a rare treat.

    Awesome cars those E26’s. Ron Dennis (Ron Dennis that now runs McLaren) was quite involved in the production as well with his company Project 4 after there was a lot of problems in Italy.

        He built all the Procars and some road cars as well. There is a great interview with him in Motor Sport Magazine there he mention this. I believe that it’s available for free on their www.
