And it sounds downright incredible.
From 1978 until 1981, BMW built what some argue is the greatest BMW of all time. It’s hard to disagree. The BMW M1, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and raced for two years in the Procar BMW M1 Championship, is without a doubt a highly sought after collector’s car. Just 457 examples were built. And every so often we’re fortunate enough to see one of the rare M1 Procars on track. Today is one of those days. Thanks to NM2255, it’s time for us all to bear witness to not one but two M1 Procars taking to the track at Spa.
With those 3.5-liter straight-sixes doing their thing, the cars have never looked or sounded better as they slice through that famous piece of twisted Belgian asphalt. Oh, and they’re shooting flames. Wicked.
Over the years we've seen several M1s come up for sale, none of which were exactly cheap. There was even one found in a barn after being locked away for over 30 years. And then there was the M1 once owned by F1 legend (and M1 Procar driver) Niki Lauda. Iconic BMW at an iconic track. Happy Sunday, everyone.
