**New BMW M1 Concept**

Quote:
We sent two journalists at the Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza near Lake Como in Italy, an event sponsored by BMW with a very nice array of classic BMWs: 5 M1s out of the 399 produced and various other models like the original 3.0 CSL. Now, look at what they stumbled upon: the new BMW M1 Concept.


We suspect that the body hides the M5/M6 5L V10 and is BMW's counter-strike to Audi's R8 and Mercedes SLC.

they should just change the name and hire a new design staff...

Something about it doesn't look like an official BMW concept. My guess is it's of a thirdparty.

i think its a great idea, but i agree that it doesnt look like a bmw. the design is out of date, but i do like it. for a second, i thought it was the new challenger.

I think it looks amazing...
Kinda like a mix between european driving classics and american muscle....

I think it would be great competition betwen the merc, audi and all of the new domestic return of the muscle cars.

Great design!!!

Its a little bit too much of a throwback IMO, then again the body and rear look very promising
