BMWs single middle motor car as a series vehicle. At the end of the 70s 456 cars had been

used in the PROCAR racing series. Design by Giugiaro.

In the late 1970s, Italian manufacturer Lamborghini entered into an agreement with BMW to build a production racing car in sufficient quantity for homologation. The result was sold to the public, from 1978 to 1981, as the BMW M1. It was the only mid-engined BMW to be mass produced.

In 2008, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the M1, BMW presented the M1 Homage Concept (some nice wallpaper and further info here)


This car was sold at auction when the museum closed, see here for details
