BMW M1 Super Car

BMW is proving once again it hang with the best of super car manufacturers by releasing an all new BMW M1 Super Car.

As for the engine, CAR says anything in the BMW lineup will fit but the most likely candidate is a 3.0-liter straight six with three turbos and about 450 horsepower. Auto Express will come with either the six or the 4.0-liter V8 from the M3. That would give it about 400 horsepower. Whatever it gets, look for a 0-to-60 time of around 4 seconds and a top speed just north of 200.

Seems a little mild for a mid engine super car, but whom am I to judge?  Good thing this car isn't even being built yet and you could actually not see a working BMW M1 until as late as 2013.  Super rich, please start holding your breath now and put me in your Will.  Below is just a shell, all we have to wet our whistle until BMW makes an official announcement.

  2. Most people can certainly obtain those wheels on the E46 with the comp bundle. For the tail upgrades, this is the less expensive approach of giving a minor refresh in line with its present model to attractl prospective buyers into choosing a younger model year. They do it on a regular basis with the front skirt and taillights. The E46 did not attain it’s taillight revise until the 2004 designs I believe.
