BMW have lately presented the M1 Hommage Concept as a reminiscence to their
legendary sports car of the late 1970's, the M1, at the Concorso D'eleganza.
Even though Munich is planning to come up with more show cars of this sort,
the orange wedge-shaped vehicle could really go into production.
A BMW board member indicated that there is a 6 in 10 chance for this. The M1 Hommage
Concept displayed at the meeting of expensive vinatge cars did neither have an interior
nor was it able to drive however BMW are preparing a completed M1 study for this
Although there is no decision yet what engine will power the flat
Bimmer, Audi's R8 defines the minimal performance rates.
As with BMW's upcoming four door coupe, the V10 aggregate of the M5 or a newly developed
bi-turbo V8 motor come into question. But even if Munich do not realize the M1 approach,
they will come out with another sports car to rival not only the Audi R8 but also the
soon-to-come sports car of Mercedes-Benz which is rumoured to be named SLC.
