One of the best-known vehicles of the BMW brand is definitely the M1 Procar! With a tubular frame by Marchesi, a glass fiber reinforced plastic body by TIR and the fact that Giorgio Giugiaros company ItalDesign Had to assemble both and also the interior was the M1 unusually Italian. But the real highlight was of course the BMW mechanics and the manual transmission with 5 gears supplied by ZF. And then there was the lucky fact that in order to be homologated in motorsport in the sense of FIA Group 4, at least 400 copies had to be built for the road. The opponent was thus created for the Ferrari 512 BB or the Lamborghini Countach. And the street version of the mid-engine flounder with a height of just 1,14 meters was even allowed to take the asphalt under its wheels as the first BMW car ever with the designation "M".
BMW M1 from Khyzyl Saleem
And now the talented graphic designer Khyzyl Saleem has thought about how a BMW M1 Procar in chic Alpina Green metallic and with a specially made body kit could look. And the virtual result is probably the dream of almost every M enthusiast. A little like the Canepa M1 the variant of Khyzyl is significantly more elegant, especially in view of the missing rear wing. In addition, the M1 has kept a brutal lowering and, in addition to the phenomenal paintwork, the typical almost closed wheel set. However, not in a 16 inch variant, but larger and also highly polished. In combination with a powerful lowering, the M1 should hardly be higher than 1 meter. After all, a production vehicle was only 16 meters high on the 1,14-inch models mentioned and with standard tires, as already mentioned above.
With electric drive and automatic transmission?
We can think of the variant of Khyzyl Saleem as well Restomod Imagine a project that instead of the straight six-cylinder comes with a powerful electric drive and perhaps the 8-speed automatic from the M5 F90. In addition, a few other technical delicacies such as ABS, power steering and traction control. Things that never existed in the original from the 400s built 80 times. We are curious to see whether a tuner dares to recreate the M1 from "The Khyza". The recently presented Dodge Viper on Vossen ML-R1 rims and VW Golf 2 GTI project by Prior Design & JP or the Raceism-M4 show car have already shown us that it is only a jump from the drawing board to the street. If we receive timely information about a possible replica, there is of course an update for this report. You will be informed if you simply use ours Feed subscribe to.
