Bmw M1

In 1976, head of BMW Motorsport Jochen Neerpasch decided to make a new project creating new supercar which is no longer based on serial models of BMW. Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro was appointed to be the main design manager. In 1978, new joint venture Giugiaro and BMW Motorsport introduced a supercar called Bmw M1. Letter M refferes to the name of organizational unit, and number is the sequential of the model. The output volume of these models amounted to 453 units at that time.

Bmw M1 is an elegant but at the same time strictly combination of high technology, powerful powertrains, lightweight body and modern design. In those days, Bmw M1 was produced as coupe. Since then, Bavarian automobile manufacturer offered the same model but as a convertible, wagon, sedan, crossover, roadster as well as coupe, of course. However, nowadays, the latest generation of Bmw M1 are issued only as a convertible and coupe. Body length of both versions is 4898 mm, width - 1899 mm and height - 1368 mm.

Bmw M1 Coupe boasts with a volume of its trunk - 460 litres, while the convertible luggage compartment amounted to 350 litres. The latest generation of Bmw M1 is equipped with 2.7 liter engine rated at 560 HP, which works together with automatic gearbox and rear-wheel drive. The maximum speed of BMW M1 is equal to 250 km/h and acceleration up to 100 km/h is just 4 seconds. In urban areas, Bmw M1 coupe spends 14 liters of fuel per hundred kilometers, while on the highway, this figure falls nearly twice and equals to 7.6 litres. On the other hand, convertible version's fuel consumption while driving in the city is 14.4 litres and on the highway - 7.9 litres.
