PHOTOS: BMW's legendary supercar, the M1
This 1981 BMW M1 is located at the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin, CA. The legendary mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive supercar made by BMW has a top speed of 162 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. It is equipped with a 3.5L I6 engine paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The exotic looks are courtesy of Italdesign, who designed the vehicle for BMW. Lamborghini also helped out by building these very special cars for the German automaker. Only 456 M1’s were produced during 1978 to 1981.
