Although it may sound like a dream, it appears that Bmw will finally revive the M1 supercar. Auto Bild magazine reports that Bmw will launch the car after the i8 hybrid sports car will be introduced, somewhere in 2016. The M1 will be powered by a V8 engine delivering around 650 hp.
As expected, the new Bmw M1 will follow the same “Efficient Dynamics” principle and will come equipped with start-stop system and will be capable to recover the energy lost during braking.
The new Bmw M1 will take on cars such as the Porsche 911, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG but also the Audi R8. As a result, it will offer a top sped of 330 km/h or 205 mph.
There are no details yet regarding the design, but we do know that Bmw will use carbon fiber, aluminum, titanium and various plastic to build the new M1. Using these materials, we expect to see a total weight of the car of 1250 km. Pricing is expected to start at 250,000 euros or $317,000.
