Didn’t get enough of the BMW M1/1M clip from the Nurburgring yesterday? We bring you even more footage in this extended version clip. Over 2 more minutes of footage on and around the track!
Jon Sibal has again produced a stunning rendering of an upcoming BMW, this time the BMW M1 coupe. The M1 elements seen on this car (aggressive front bumper, hood bulge, side vent and skirts, flared fenders) look possible from spy photos and has been confirmed to be very close to the real thing by BMW insider.
As promised, here is the first ever video of the BMW M1 production body test car hotlapping the Nurburgring, as well as footage from near the track. The M1 looks fast and very firmly planted around the turns, with minimal bodyroll, as well as sounding terrific! Not enough? We will bring you more tomorrow!
These are the first photos of the BMW M1 prototype with production body performing hotlap testing on the Nurburgring in extensive chassis and handling. Previously, weve only seen the red prototype running on the track. We will have a video for you later this afternoon, so stay tuned!
The BMW M1 photo with advanced production bodywork was spotted storming the Germany countryside. Sporting the same bodywork as previously seen here, seen is a a more aggressive front end, larger fenders, a trunk-mounted lip spoiler, big alloy wheels and cross-drilled rotors appear.
Here’s an update from Scott on the BMW M1, including the naming/badging process, launch cycle, testing schedule, filming in Los Angeles, and social media marketing.
Spotted during testing on the Nurburgring today was the BMW M1 test mule! This test mule doesnt wear the more advanced prototype M1 body as we posted earlier, but is out testing powertrain, chassis, suspension, and handling properties. We also see for the first time what could be the carbon fiber roof.
BMW inside Scott26 provides some updates on BMW M1 development (full info inside), including introduction & production timeline, pricing, convertible version, and more. Whether the information is accurate is for you to decide, but it’s certainly somewhat assuring to continue hearing M1 details.
What you are seeing here is the clearest teaser yet of the BMW M1 concept which is widely speculated to be making its debut at the 2010 Geneva auto show in just over a week’s time. Wide rear fenders appear on the M1 concept, as well what could be a vent or diffuser behind the rear fenders.
