About two months ago, BMW has revealed their M1 Hommage, a concept that pays tribute to the original M1. The new design was shown at a private party at the Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este. And just a few days ago, as a refresher, Andrew has posted an article on the BMW M1 Procar returning to the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim July 19th and 20th.
Yesterday, one of our readers, Jon, sent in a rendering of the BMW M1 Procar, based on the M1 Hommage concept. Based on his experience and actually seeing in person the M1 Procar, Jon managed to come up with a cool rendering, something that would be appealing to all the BMW fans.
Here is what Jon had to say:
I began the process by studying the different angles of the M1 Concept Car to get a feel for the lines, shapes and curvature of the body. And with any BMW concept car, the design and contours are all new which required a ProCar body kit that suits these lines properly. The “flamed surface” is very evident so to properly convert this M1 to the ProCar, all of these design elements needed to be considered. I sketched out a new wide body kit design making sure that it stays true to the BMW design language by continuing the new lines of the concept car. The front fascia was also modified and given the updated ProCar look. So with Photoshop CS, the new design was applied and rendered. The BMW M1 ProCar is basically a raced-out version of the original street M1 so the addition of the race rear wing was important to complete the conversion along with new super deep dish wheels.

So, what do you think of it? Any pros, cons? Could this be Batman's weekend automobile? :)
