Given a choice we would choose the M1. When BMW decided to build a supercar in 1978, the run-up to the M1's launch wasn't smooth. It was supposed to be built in partnership with Lamborghini as a homologated race car. That partnership didn't work out, and the M1 became the first car to be designed and built wholly by BMW's M division. With a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8, the BMW M1 is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and powerful - just what every driver wants in their high-performance car! BMW doesn't need a race car right now, but a modern halo supercar would get a lot of people excited.
