This car looks sick
Dolphin Kanapi Nov 28, 2012
I love this car.
Donald Chip Schofield Nov 25, 2012
V12 with cylinder de-activation in regular driving mode. That would be awesome
Carlton Salmon Nov 25, 2012
It's a three cylinder 1.5 litre engine, not a five cylinder.
David Lender Nov 27, 2012
Countach
David Lender Nov 27, 2012
I see some Lamborghini count arch in this
Gazel Hebbert Nov 26, 2012
Almost looks like it could pass as an 8 series. The R8 is beautiful. The SLS is...unique. This looks the most...normal. Even if this is a concept.
Gazel Hebbert Nov 26, 2012
The wheels? NO. The front is alright; just the headlamps bug me. A little mod here or there and it will look good. Still doesnt look very SUPERCARS ish to me
Preston Ming Nov 26, 2012
looks like the old Wiegert Vector W8
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 26, 2012
I don't know I just don't like the way that square BMW symbol is in the middle looks, could be better
Lead Peddalin Nov 26, 2012
I think everyone needs to note that this will not be the supercar.
Eric Burns Nov 26, 2012
It's juvenile !
Michael Fasanello Nov 26, 2012
A rare BMW miss. This is fugly.
Ray Liu Nov 26, 2012
One word says all: ugly
Stas Allen Nov 25, 2012
It looks too.....cubed. Does that make sense guys?
Coleman DuCharme Nov 25, 2012
I see a bit of toaster in the front, and the rear was clearly inspired by a metro bus.
Cory Allen Nov 25, 2012
Neat!
Alex Pritsert Nov 25, 2012
Front a bit ugly.
Drew Humphrey Nov 25, 2012
I really like it.
Car Buzzer Nov 25, 2012
Wow, BMW made a ricer
Wesley Snipenheimer Nov 25, 2012
This might have looked good in the 90s...
Taylor Little Nov 25, 2012
No, thank you.
Ben Marotta Nov 25, 2012
It looks like a hammerhead shark from the front. I'm not a big fan.
Paul Dickey Nov 25, 2012
Hideous.
Jommel Marcella Nov 25, 2012
How is this boring. It looks stunning.
Cody Gillard Nov 25, 2012
Am i the only one around here who thinks its kinda boring
Jordan Jackson Nov 25, 2012
Yes for the car, but no for the wheels, even tho this is just the concept those attempts at throwback wheels are hideous IMO
Byakka Hirakawa Nov 25, 2012
It looks like its plotting somthjng evil! Love it
Alex Medvedev Nov 25, 2012
Sexy and old school
Tyler Tarbox Nov 25, 2012
It's about time BMW builds a supercar. Mercedes and Audi already have so they kinda had to
Thibault Leroy Nov 25, 2012
This is a concept they did a while ago for a modern M1
Roger Guilemany Mortimer Nov 25, 2012
BMW needs a supersport car, but no these one please!
Walker Carroll Nov 25, 2012
Taken some design cues from the M1 Supercar
Braxton Omgbased Booker Nov 25, 2012
they got a serious winner on there hands, those wheels are just classic though definitely a dope car
Jared Oteri Nov 25, 2012
Love love love

Not very likely in a hybrid super car. Especially from BMW.
Ethan Amo Nov 25, 2012
Hope they bring a manual

Isn't that what mini is for
Nick Schnee Nov 25, 2012
Yeah... BMW shouldn't built FWD cars anyway.
Chris Gaines Nov 25, 2012
negative on that last one, waste of time and money
Bruno Rocha Nov 28, 2012
This picture show that it is not the 8M, but the 1M. And it will not go into production, because it's a hommage (tribute to the old 1M)
Victor Pitts Nov 26, 2012
I approve this ass-end. I love retro.
Ryan Spencer Nov 26, 2012
I'll take mine in white. Thanks
Ray Liu Nov 26, 2012
If this was a Toyota rather than the BMW badge u would still call this good looking or say ur loving it? Me not
Mark Pasillas Nov 26, 2012
I'm loving this view
Sam Reinsel Nov 26, 2012
@Car buzzer, the original M1 from the 70s was done by BMW in collaboration with Lamborghini, so it isn't surprising that there are similarities in the design.
Stas Allen Nov 25, 2012
The last image was not pretty. This one is gorgeous! IMO
Jared Oteri Nov 25, 2012
Listen idc what people think it looks like I just want to get in it and go fast.... NOW
Serge Pankratov Nov 25, 2012
I dont know what this looks like.. But to me it looks awful.. Thumbs down on the whole car for me..
Daniel Eads Nov 25, 2012
BMW made the M1 supercar in the 70's. The 1M is the sporty version of the 1 series. The car pictured is a concept made earlier this year to take queues from the M1 to show what the M8 might look like.
Luke Spence Nov 25, 2012
I say it's good. New car with a kind of retro Lambo design.
Chris McCormick Nov 25, 2012
Sexy rear end!!
Coleman DuCharme Nov 25, 2012
I'm a bit confused. I thought BMW's potential future supercar was to be dubbed the M1, as this concept suggests. Not the M8, although I could be mistaken.
William Downs Nov 25, 2012
M3 - the m1
William Downs Nov 25, 2012
No Dylan the 1m is the m edition of the 1 series M3 is an old car witch this one resembles
Dylan Gomes Nov 25, 2012
technically it is an M1 not a 1M but just a concept
Drew Humphrey Nov 25, 2012
Technically it's 1M not M1.
Car Buzzer Nov 25, 2012
Actually Connor, I was thinking that the rear looks identical to the diablo.. Just sayin'
Eric Burns Nov 25, 2012
I looks completely juvenile
Jorge Gonzalez Nov 25, 2012
I doubt those Germans would ever make anything this far out of their box. Especially in comparison to other BMWs.
Cody Gillard Nov 25, 2012
I like that
Alex Medvedev Nov 25, 2012
Love it
Jon Wheel Nov 25, 2012
Do this
Bala Uncc Nov 25, 2012
It says BMW m1
Nick Schnee Nov 25, 2012
FYI... this is the M1 concept...
Miko Reginella Nov 25, 2012
It is a BMW M1
Daniel Eads Nov 25, 2012
Love the rims
Lee Gardner Nov 25, 2012
I'm with Jared I have an m1 in forza horizon
Jared Oteri Nov 25, 2012
I see a BMW m1 ......... In its future form
Dylan Gregori Page Nov 25, 2012
Worst rims
Dylan Gregori Page Nov 25, 2012
That's the best looking BMW I've ever seen
Aaron Crisp Nov 25, 2012
Connor, don't start stuff.
Connor Scanlon Nov 25, 2012
Hey Colby do you see a bit of Lamborghini in this?
chris1315@sh Dec 04, 2012
id get it but wheels should be changed.
Bruno Rocha Nov 28, 2012
I would put better wheels in this shit
Janak Solanki Nov 26, 2012
Ugh I hate those spider web wheels
Hugo Gunnarsen Nov 26, 2012
This looks to just be the M1 homage from 2008. Most likely nothing like what an M8 would be. Just make the NAZCA ! Search YouTube for BMW M1 hommage ( notice the typo ) and you see this car with bmw's Adrian van Hooydonk talking about the concept.
Philipp Kentner Nov 25, 2012
I don't like how the front just goes down, a little more curve = perfection
Stas Allen Nov 25, 2012
@Waleed There is nothing wrong with the front at all! It's perfect ;) jk. This angle is ugly! Someone mentioned that it might've looked good in the 90s but they're wrong. It still would've looked bad in the 90s. Maybe the 80s it would've looked good.
Eisa Mohammed Nov 25, 2012
I think the front from sides looks like a Ferrari f355 and the back from pillar c looks like a downed Lamborghini
Waleed Alshahri Nov 25, 2012
Something wrong with front end ??
Janak Solanki Nov 26, 2012
Much better
Victor Pitts Nov 26, 2012
Miss these...
Stas Allen Nov 25, 2012
Now this is cool!
Blaine Moir' Nov 25, 2012
My favorite BMW of all time.
Fernando BoyWonder Cintron Dec 02, 2012
What Car Is This?..
Ignacio Payan Nov 29, 2012
They only made 456 from 1978-1981 and I know I guy who owns one
Michael Fasanello Nov 26, 2012
Design team was lost here. Terrible looking.
Stas Allen Nov 25, 2012
BMW, don't make a modern take on a classic car. Just make the car retro with no modern aspects at all.
Carlton Salmon Nov 25, 2012
They drive as well as they look. Been fortunate to gave driven one a short distance many years ago.
Jommel Marcella Nov 25, 2012
Agreed.
Cody Gillard Nov 25, 2012
Agree
Alex Medvedev Nov 25, 2012
Old school look is way to go
Rocky Rocker Nov 29, 2012
Sweeeeettt ride....
Chris Gaines Nov 25, 2012
looks like it could be a Z car from this angle
