A concept car was created by BMW to commemorate the 30th year of the legendary BMW M1. The BMW M1 Homage that comes in orange paint is an updated version of the M1 supercar of BMW of the 70s. This updated version of the BMW M1 was unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este.
The BMW M1 is actually a sports car that was produced by BMW from 1978 to 1981. This car was the first and the only mid-engined BMW and this model features a twin cam M88/1 3.5 L 6-cylinder gasoline engine with the Kugelfischer injection. This sports car from BMW is remembered as a refined and a civilized supercar in the BMW tradition.
From the looks of it, the M1 Homage concept is a recreation of the original M1 wit some modifications. The inspiration for the concept car comes not only from the original supercar of the 1970s but from the BMW Turbo Concept as well.
