BMW M-1 concept design

The actual BMW M1 (E26) was produced as a 2 conventional door sports car from 1978 to 1981, a total of 456 being made. This was a result of an agreement with the Italian automaker Lamborghini to build a production racing car sold to the public.  It was the only mid-engined BMW to be mass produced and employed a twin-cam M88/1 3.453 litre 6-cylinder engine with Kugelfischer mechanical fuel injection.

The design above was presumably promulgated as a proposal in the late 1970s before finalization of the actual design.
