Now you guys know that I’m not the biggest fan of BMW’s. I got much respect for what they build but they are just not my cup of tea. A bit to techy for my tastes. And the designs tend to be pretty beige. But then I found this over at BMWBlog.com… and I fell in love. If BMW can design something like the M1 Homage pictured to the left then what to we keep getting the boring drivel they call the 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10 series? They may be decent looking super nice, super quick cars, but they just blend in with everything else on the road.
This M1 on the other hand, now that is a beauty. It’s just too bad it’s only a design exercise.
The purpose of the new M1 project is uncertain and the M1 Hommage is strictly a design exercise meant to celebrate the past of its supercar. The car displayed at the Villa d’Este Concours was a non-functional prototype, with no engine and interior, but with working lights and steering. Of course, the speculations will start flowing now and many people will probably look forward to a future design similar to the M1 Hommage, but there are no clues on whether BMW will ever manufacture an M1.
