BMW M1 Hommage revealed

It has been an interesting weekend. In honor of the M1’s 30th birthday, BMW decided to reveal the M1 Hommage, a concept that pays tribute to the original M1. The new design was shown at a private party over the weekend at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este.

The M1 Hommage was placed next to an original M1 and the 1972 Turbo Concept. Nearly thirty years ago, BMW has entered the supercar market with the M1, which shortly became an icon in terms of performance. BMW are no strangers to retro design, the Mini global success is the perfect example. The M1 Hommage combines the retro style with modern elements, and it stands out by its aggressive and wide body style.

Looked from a side, the M1 clearly mimics the older design, which is easily recognized by the louvered rear window, the BMW badge placement and the metallic bronze paint, just like the first M1 prototype in 1972.

The purpose of the new M1 project is uncertain and the M1 Hommage is strictly a design exercise meant to celebrate the past of its supercar. The car displayed at the Villa d’Este Concours was  a non-functional prototype, with no engine and interior, but with working lights and steering. Of course, the speculations will start flowing now and many people will probably look forward to a future design similar to the M1 Hommage, but there are no clues on whether BMW will ever manufacture an M1.

We have heard many rumors in the past that a 1 series M version might be built in the future, but each time we have spoken with BMW executives, the rumor has not been confirmed. In my opinion, I would rather see the retro style M1 being brought back  rather than an M1 based on the 135i.

    I think the grill is wrong.  Looks like some that came from the Pontiac.  The Split grill is not accident.  Historically BMW had and has 2 narrow grills, hence the Kidney Grills.  Pontiac had them shorter and wider, due to modernization and size of the headlights they ran out of real state therefore narrow them down.  If you see the Pontiac G8 you can see the cues from years of morphing including the bottom grill is more like the 65 GTO Grill.

    I would say, BMW need to narrow down the grill to keep with tradition.
