Most of us know when we see an ‘M’ on the back of the BMW passing us on the freeway, there’s virtually no way we’re going to catch up. The ‘M’ division BMW has recently revealed its latest concept – a tribute to their first mid-engine supercar originally manufactured by collaborative efforts of BMW and Lamborghini thirty years ago – the M1.
Since the Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este, in the lake Como, in Italy was revived by BMW in 1999, BMW has shown few concept cars there but none have made it into production.
In conjunction to the 30th anniversary of the BMW M1, BMW will present its M1 Concept, which is the modern version of the M1 to the public on 27 April 2008.
At the exterior, the M1 Concept features BMW double-kidney grille at the front, 4 round headlights and trapezoidal lower opening at the front to provide better air flow for cooling and aerodynamic effect.
In the world of supercars, the M1 certainly looks like it will hold its own – an effortless blend of retro cool with revolutionary elegance. The new Liquid Orange M1 may only be a concept right now, but just know if you see those beady headlights quickly approaching from your rear view mirror, move out of the fast lane.
