car description

1980 BMW M1 s/n WBS4301006 Inka Orange with Black Interior BMW’s M1 is a fascinating and unique car from a period during which the supercar was just coming into its own. The word was originally created for the Miura ten years earlier, and other cars that fit the model were emerging, including the Countach, Boxer, and Bora. The M1 was the first German car of this type, and as it has turned out, BMW’s only such car to date. Developed jointly with Lamborghini, the car is still very much a German car: it is usable, practical, comfortable, and durable. The heart of the car is the M88 engine, which has an exciting and very racy specification that included dual overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, one throttle body per cylinder, tubular headers, and dry sump lubrication. The engine was intended for racing, and indeed, the competition version of the M1 was raced extensively in the Procar series, a 1-make series in which drivers from Formula 1, the World Sports Car Championship, and European Touring Car Championship all competed against one another. The races were typically run as support races for F1 events, and Nikki Lauda won the championship in the inaugural year of 1979. Ultim
