This particular M1 was purchased new in Belgium by a British diplomat, Mr J Wolfe, who brought it to the UK. There is a BMW (GB) invoice on file, dated February 1981 and made out to Mr Wolfe, for unspecified repairs costing £4,238. Subsequently the car was registered in the UK (in April 1989) as 'KCH 457V', passing via Sytner of Nottingham Ltd to the second private owner, Richard Turner of Gillingham, Dorset in October 1991. The M1 then passed via Classic Automobiles Ltd of Wandsworth, South London to the last owner in Spain in April 1994 who kept the car until 2015 in a garage with air condition (sales invoice on file). Since acquisition, the car has covered some 47,000 kilometres, the current odometer reading being 62,580km. The owner has not needed to do much to the M1, confining himself to replacing the fuel lines, water hoses and hydraulic hoses (eight years ago) and replacing the steel sump with a stainless item. Otherwise un-restored and original, the car is offered with the aforementioned bill and sales invoice, copies of old UK registration documents, and Spanish registration papers. The current owner bought #1080 in 2015 and serviced the car at BMW Classic in Munich.

Today the car is represented in the striking JMS racing team “Xray” livery that it wore during the 1977 24H of Le Mans event. The graphic design was sponsored and executed by 3M who showed off their skills and how the cut vinyl could create fabulous racing liveries without painting the car. The ownership trail and the Le Mans entries of 930 670 0177 are fully documented with original weighing documents from the Le Mans archives, copies of the owners French road registration titles, customs documents and bills of sale. The engine fitted inside the car is the original matching numbers engine * 676 2027 * which was recently completely overhauled and purchased in Portugal and it's now again reunited with 930 670 0177. With its 1977 livery back on the car, 930 670 0177 was displ
