The Story of the M1

The story of the M1

The M1 project is fascinating for two reasons. Firstly, it is the cornerstone of BMW Motorsport, as well as being the basis of a series of fascinating M Series vehicles, which continue to strongly characterise the identity of BMW today. Secondly, the M1 was developed purely as a racing car and 400 road versions were created from this to enable type approval for group 4.
