Oops, BMW, not all German automakers* lolz
Stray Kots Feb 22, 2013
XD "the German automaker" was a reference to all BMWs. The importance of this car is privy to all BMW fans, though its legacy is important to anyone with a fast four door car. That's due to recycling that racing engine and "M" badge

Why do people say unicorn? Why not something cleverer, like Yeti, or sober Charlie Sheen?

The only thing this doesn't have I common with a unicorn is that there be no rainbow coming from its arse.

If its kinda or anything like a unicorn, you'll NEVER see one... in person at least.
Eric Anthony Feb 22, 2013
Because their rare & tha likeliness of seeing one isn't very high. Kind of like a unicorn.
Mason Lampe Feb 22, 2013
Or the Audi R8? Or Mercedes SLS? There's plenty of German supercars!

What about the Gumpert?

To much lamborghini in this bimmer

The story goes like this. BMW engineered the car, Lamborghini had the facilities, they ran into money trouble and closed factories, BMW got screwed over.

@ Colby, they were working hand in hand, kind of like subaru and Toyota and if the deal would have broke down before it was finally produced, even though it was already engineered. That's what happened. Learn your history before you correct someone e

Ugh, Lamborghini is affiliated with this car. As a matter of fact, they were supposed to build it, but BMW visited their facility and changed their mind. They took the design and built it at their own factory.

"Designed by Giugiaro and engineered by Lamborghini" ....
Colby Church Feb 22, 2013
No, it was engineered by BMW. Lamborghini is busy engineering their own cars, they don't have the time to engineer a super car for another automaker from a different country.

It was engineered by Lamborghini

Ugly wheels
Ryan Cardone Feb 23, 2013
Those rims are straight up Matchbox/HotWheels car esqué.
Justin Johnson Feb 22, 2013
Chris, the one from about seven years ago? I thought that car was atrocious, just me though
Chris Gaines Feb 22, 2013
have you guys seem the m1 homage concept? it's an i8 with a real engine.. that's what they should be building!
Matt Piccolo Feb 22, 2013
I've always found the back awkward
Matthew van der Linde Feb 22, 2013
Or the V12 they use in the 760Li
Matthew van der Linde Feb 22, 2013
They ought to borrow a V12 from their sister company rolls royce and put that in a new M1
Mikey Jenkins Feb 22, 2013
Such a beautiful car I think they should re make it like this but with today's technology and see what happens :)) Imaging this with a 1m or m5 engine in
