It’s amazing that it took this long.
More than 30 years after the iconic original made young boys salivate, BMW appears to be readying a new M1 supercar.
The M1 should not be confused with the i8 concept sports car which uses lightweight materials, but also has a high-tech hybrid powertrain.
Instead, the M1 is likely to be powered by a conventional gasoline engine. While some have speculated that the M1 would use a straight six like the original, that is unlikely. Lately, BMW has favored twin-turbocharged V-8s producing more than 600 horsepower for its highest-performance.
