1980 BMW M1 Coupe

Born out of a desire to compete in the FIA's Group 5 racing category, BMW produced the M1 from 1978 to 1981 as the first car developed solely by its M motorsports sub-brand. Giorgetto Giugiaro penned the mid-engine car's lines in one of the ultimate expressions of the "wedge", alongside the Countach and the Stratos. Only 453 M1s were produced, one of which is the car pictured here. The car came to the US in 1987 and was purchased by the current owner in 2016. Power comes from a 3.5-liter M88 inline-six, driving the rear wheels through a five-speed ZF gearbox. The car was treated to a restoration under current ownership and wears a white colorway with BMW Motorsport tri-color stripes and a Procar-style front air dam, like the Group 5 race cars. This M1 is currently up for auction via Bring a Trailer.
