Overall it's a good rendering, but there is still quite a bit wrong with it. Easily a product of PS. I don't know why there is any debate over its authenticity.

I just hope BMW does finally bring an R8 type car to the market. You know, something mid engined, packed with tons of horse power, 140k+ price range, just a super BMW basically. . . . I mean Im sitting here watching Audi bring out the R8 and the V12 TDI version, Mercedes has had their SLR Mclaren, and so on. Yet BMW hasn't made a super car in a while. The Z8 was nice, but no super car.

I could tell you...but nah

lol jk. I seen it on another forum. Somebody must have recognised that background from this pic and realised it was fake.

I knew it was fake for too many reasons:

1) When manufacters use existing models for prototypes, they dont modify all of the components to fit the prototype. eg. powedome, sidevents etc.

2) Pretty convenient timing. The M1 Concept has just been revealed.

3) The headlights as you pointed out!

4) It's an UNDISGUISED prototype and it's in polished up and left in the middle of a hangar.

Prototype M1 Prototype Caught Undisguised (maybe)

Oops repost here's the origional post (in the right section) :

"Hiding in an airplane hanger lies this 2008 BMW M1 Prototype. It looks like its sitting on a streched chassis of the current BMW M3 incorporating various parts including the front facia and the hood. Of course they have been slightly changed to fit the agrresive stance of this BMW. We don’t know any more details at this point other then it was created by H0SS Forero.

Word to BMW: PLEASE BUILD IT!"

-Source: FreshTarmac.com

"We've been debating whether or not this is a real photo or an expert rendering, but if it is a photoshopped image of a BMW M1 prototype, then it is very convincing. According to FreshTarmac.com, this photo was taken in a hangar in Spain. It shows a sleek two-door, probably mid-engined coupe with attributes of the new M3 incorporated into its design, especially the front fenders and hood. With BMW introducing the M1 Hommage Concept at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este last week, we hope this means that is already considering a production version. Come on BMW, build it!"

-Source: Autoblog

P.S.: It's just a rendering someone thats REALLY good at PS made.

Nicely done but not the greatest, certain areas are not proportioned right especially the hood and front end of the car to the back.

Well the thing is that it's a surprisingly well done chop. Of course it's almost 95% e92 M3, but the way it's been molded is really creative to say the least.

The biggest giveaway of it being a chop is the rough C-Pillar section of the car. That, and the headlight housings.

But yeah, it's basically a warped M3.
