did they ever actually build that homage concept, or was it just a computer model?
Edd Uhlan Jun 21, 2012
They said that back in 2004..
Steven Velez Jun 21, 2012
true, this is amazing but most may get 1m & m1 confused (well those who don't know much about them at the least)
Chris Penza Jun 20, 2012
It must be true if the 1 series is called the 1m not the m1
Description: BMW holds trademarks on M1, M8 and M10, so take your pick for the supercar's name, while reports on the powertrain suggest a V8 capable of 600hp to 650hp. Top speed should be in the region of 205...

Why V10? BMW already has a V12 engine in the ultra expensive 760i
Andy Clouthier Jun 21, 2012
No new M cars are N/A at this point. New m3 will be bi or tri turbo inline 6, m5 already has biturbo v8.
Alex Newgard Jun 20, 2012
I would assume mid mounted?
Jon Ashley Jun 20, 2012
Please make this car BMW! M10, V10 .
Jason Brower Jun 20, 2012
Except for the fact that Koenigsegg has THE highest hp/displacement ratio of any car maker. Something BMW is not know for at all. At a minimum they would need forced induction on this v8, or it would have to radically depart from N.A. BMW's of old.
Dennis Choong Jun 20, 2012
I doubt the M1 will have a titanium exhaust
Chris Penza Jun 20, 2012
And ssc and hennessey
Taggart Wilber Jun 20, 2012
Corey, so you need a v10? Then I guess we are ignoring the K-segg
Bob Turefannt Jun 20, 2012
There have been a lot of rumors going around carbuzz lately about a BMW super car.
Domi Bsaibes Jun 20, 2012
Titanium's for exhaust
Dennis Choong Jun 20, 2012
Titanium? Wonder which part of the car will utilise it.
Corey King DiFazio Jun 20, 2012
Trying to out gun a super car lime the others that have been there before I think you need a v10 and get in the area between buggatti and the others which is like 220mph about
Domi Bsaibes Jun 20, 2012
It's gonna be one hell of a supercar!
Jesse Krim Jun 22, 2012
@mattgreenlee the M performance 1 series is not the M1. It's called the 1M. They call it that for this specific purpose of having another M1
Matt Greenlee Jun 22, 2012
IF this will be called the M1, then what will the current M-tuned 1 series be called? or would they stop making those?
Kenneth Williams Jun 21, 2012
I like all of it
Steven Velez Jun 21, 2012
strange but nice..change the rims though
Dan Arthur Jun 21, 2012
If I were to paint a beaver orange, give him some terrible wheels, drop kick it 10 yards then immediately take a picture it would be this car
Logan LeMonnier Jun 21, 2012
This is an old pic
Kyle Kloewer Jun 21, 2012
The rims are crack dealers
Abraham Mendoza Jun 20, 2012
Actually, it was made by BMW and it was made 4 years ago, like it says on the article.
Cham Khiev Jun 20, 2012
Cmon bmw u can do better
Laguna Seca Jun 20, 2012
So this isn't the 2015 mustang?
Jason Reimann Jun 20, 2012
Anyone else see a little countach?
Das Stig Jun 20, 2012
I'm pretty sure this is an old concept. and, it most likely wasn't made by BMW so very little if any of this car will be in the actual car.
Jennings Rengel Jun 20, 2012
Hahaha more like a normal car??? Normal super car lol
Paul Roberts Jun 20, 2012
It's like classic and futuristic at the same time. I like it, just make it a little more like normal cars
Abraham Mendoza Jun 20, 2012
I really like it, but this is a 4 year old concept, I know they'll change a couple things here and there.
Jose Miguel Fernandez Jun 20, 2012
It looks pretty freaking good but, the only thing I did not like we're the headlights and wheels
Michael Davidson Jun 20, 2012
I like it all, except the wheels.
Alex Bouckley Jun 20, 2012
This concept is from '08
Mark A. Young Jun 20, 2012
It's hideous. Looks like a anteater or that thing from Ice Age.
Jordan Jackson Jun 20, 2012
It looks alright, but it would be better looking if it had different wheels
Jay Kolvenbag Jun 20, 2012
If i'm honest I think this doesn't look really good
Alex Smith Jun 20, 2012
It's looks like a 70's supercar. Which I guess pays homage to the original but I don't know about supercars going for the retro look.
George Feghali Jun 20, 2012
I feel like before the pic they actually crushed the car. That why it looks so bad
Isaac Taylor Jun 20, 2012
ummmmm...disappointed ;(
Janak Solanki Jun 20, 2012
Those wheels gotta go.
Chris Penza Jun 20, 2012
The front needs a slight redesign, but the rest is nice
Eli Dirk Jun 20, 2012
disagree .. I love this concept.
Devin Babyn Jun 20, 2012
I really do not like the design what so ever
Cameron Duncan Condy Jun 20, 2012
Really unsure how I feel about this.
Oscar Galvan Jun 20, 2012
I never liked this concept
Ashen Fonseka Jun 20, 2012
This would be awesome for BMW if this happens
Kan Wes Jun 20, 2012
Love the stance and proportions.
Dwayne Contadino Jun 20, 2012
I love this concept.
Scott Gall Jun 20, 2012

Rocky Rocker Jun 20, 2012
Slap me silly. Ggggggrrreeeaaatttttttt lookin rides
Abraham Mendoza Jun 20, 2012
Me too. Some exquisite lines for a BMW.
Jv Jun 20, 2012
How can people not like the M1, personally i love how it looks.
Isaac Taylor Jun 20, 2012
I can hardly tell the difference...that's not good haha
Janak Solanki Jun 20, 2012
Does the one on the right have tan lines?
Logan Delony Jun 20, 2012
Justin, I believe '81 if I'm correct
Chris Penza Jun 20, 2012
I'm surprised they didn't throw a procar in there
Frederick Perez Jun 20, 2012
Looks funky but the name BMW carries it
Maaz Mansoor Jun 20, 2012
I agree it looks weird as if it is made of paper
Bob Salari Jun 20, 2012
I liked the old ones more, THE nee is weird
Steven Velez Jun 21, 2012
seems like a bored type of nonchalant
Cody Fullerton Jun 21, 2012
It looks...grumpy. Not mean and menacing like an aventador, just slightly bothered.
Da Stig Jun 21, 2012
It looks druged this needs allahs help jk
Emmanuel Mateo Jun 20, 2012
Looks like this face --_______________--
Jordan Jackson Jun 20, 2012
It looks like a BMW and a Dodge challenger were combined from this angle... Lol
Hank Austin Jun 20, 2012
Looks like its been hanging around the new 7... I think it's a bad influence on the other cars because this also looks very stoned... I guess this one gave in to peer pressure...
Cody Voth Jun 20, 2012
I see Sid the sloth!
Shaun Conroy Jun 20, 2012
Looks V E R Y S L E E P Y!
Charlie Stratton Jun 20, 2012

boldcars Jun 20, 2012

Thibault Leroy Jun 20, 2012

Maaz Mansoor Jun 20, 2012

The wheels are terrible
Da Stig Jun 21, 2012
Cooper yer f...Ed up in yer head no offense
Cooper Fay Jun 20, 2012
actually, i like the rims. And i like the grooves in the back that are good for aerodynamics and they also add a cool look. I think the car is awesome. Thats my personal opinion
Chayton Garverick Jun 20, 2012
Those rims have to be based off the Dharma Initiative logos
Hank Austin Jun 20, 2012
The rims look like they belong in a kitchen... Idk why I said that
Michael J Solimene Jun 20, 2012
Car is crazy rims are raunchy
Tim Butler Jun 20, 2012
Change those rims it's ruins the look
Nick Mangini Jun 23, 2012

Kyle Sankovich Jun 22, 2012
Any rims but those. They look like plastic
Drew Storrusten Jun 21, 2012
I see kind of a Lamborghini...? Or do I just sound dumb. Hahaha.
Malachi Monteiro Jun 21, 2012
They are trying way too hard.
Mustafa Alshekhly Jun 21, 2012
It is worst M ever
Kyle Kloewer Jun 21, 2012
The leuvers or however that's spelled resemble the old ones
Da Stig Jun 21, 2012
Why this looks like a concept from the 80s
Matthew Crighton Jun 20, 2012
@Kyle, how do you plan on eating soup out of a concave cheese grater?
Alex Vasquez Jun 20, 2012
The 8series was the best of BMW, they should bring them back and give it the retro look.
Matt Piccolo Jun 20, 2012
Not bmw's best work
Aislin Cooper Jun 20, 2012
This really isn't the best of BMW
Hektor Yberg Jun 20, 2012
Kill it with fire!
Kyle Smith Jun 20, 2012
Man you could eat soup out of those rims, or a bowl of nesquick cereal
Antonio Borja Jun 20, 2012
this thing is terrible. don't build this it's junk
Hank Austin Jun 20, 2012
@frederick have you seen the back?... And I thought the front was bad lol
Frederick Perez Jun 20, 2012
Every angle works but not the front end
Josh Banning Jun 20, 2012
Hope it looks like this
nhra man233 Dec 26, 2012

Matt Kent Jun 27, 2012
The last two comments are right and i agree with.
Nick Mangini Jun 23, 2012
front shows some signs of the new challenger with that box like bumper
Cassius Jun 21, 2012
This is an old concept car if I'm not mistaken
Da Stig Jun 21, 2012
If this is it it's bs I love BMW but this is hard to love
Matt Piccolo Jun 20, 2012
Change the wheels, and the front could use some tweaking, but I like the overall shape
Alex Bouckley Jun 20, 2012
This pic is from Automobile Mag. Am I right?
Antonio Borja Jun 20, 2012
aerodynamics of a widescreen TV
Hank Austin Jun 20, 2012
I can see how it works in the profile but the front angles in so much that you can't even see the headlights...
Logan Delony Jun 20, 2012
Lmfao Cody I can just hear pedobear playin
Nick Sti Jun 20, 2012
