BMW's starcrossed supercar, the M1, was conceived as contender to end Porsche's dominance in Group 5 competition, but financial intrigue with development partner Lamborghini and competition rules changes by the FIA consigned the M1 to being little more than a footnote in the annals of racing history. The resulting road car, however, is now regarded as one of the greatest and most significant BMWs of all time. The first car to be built entirely by BMW's M Division, it introduced the legendary M88 inline six engine that would later power era-defining M-badged coupes and sedans. Its lovely Giugiaro styling and sublime handling only served to increase the desirability of this rare mid-engined Bimmer.
The M1 is now available in a beautifully detailed 1:43-scale diecast model replica by Maxichamps. Blending great detail and great value, it features an accurately rendered body and faithfully recreated road wheels, along with fine work in its interior appointments and exterior badging.
