BMW M1 special: New York night drive, Warhol's art car, Procar story plus a drive in the i8


Our celebration of the BMW M1 begins in a slightly alien environment for this European exotica – a drive on the city streets of Manhattan. We can’t celebrate the M1 without a look back at the Procar series, as well as Andy Warhol’s famous art car. John Simister dissects the M88 engine – tracing its evolution through the various generations of M cars – and Mark Dixon examines how the M1 has provided inspiration for the i8. James Elliott seeks to find out why the M1 is so adored by its owners, speaking to a man who has owned and driven his for more than 30 years.
