Concept M1

Found at autoblog.com:
http://www.autoblog.com/2008/04/26/s...t-villa-deste/

BMW unveils M1 Concept 2008 at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este:
http://www.asphalte.ch/Events/VEste08/VE-M2.php

This probably means any forthcoming "halo" version of the 1er will *not* be named the M1, which most of us were guessing was the case anyway.

That looks fake to me.

Does it look like a rendering photoshopped into a pic to anyone else?

Lets hope so! That design is awful IMO. Way to gaudy for a BMW. It reminds me of a Vector, which was cool in its day, but not 20 years later!:eyebulge:

No, it is certainly real:

And, I must say, it is absolutely stunning. Aggressive, unique, beautifully detailed... everything a supercar should be.

Not a SINGLE one of those pics is real, those are ALL rendered images photoshopped into a picture.

If those pics are real why do they look so fake?:iono:That sure looks to be Photo-Shopped, and, not particularly well executed at that.

Im not saying the story is fake or BMW doesnt have plans to do the car, but those pics arent of an actual car.

Ill try to get a rendered M5 so you can see what I mean.
