The rumors of a new BMW M1 have been floating around for years now and recently, the rumormill has been churning rumors out at a rapid pace, but truth is that no information came our way and we encourage you to take these news with a grain of salt.
Worldcarfans reports today that the BMW M1 is expected to make a renewed appearance at the Dubai International Motor Show. The car supposedly displayed there will be an updated version of the M1 Hommage car unveiled in 2008.
Could this be related to the camouflaged M1 car posted first by us weeks ago? Not sure, but Worldcarfans’ sources say that the M1 is a mid-engined car with rear window louvers, but it has a body that is larger in all directions.
Here is a quote from WCF:
“The BMW M1 was an utterly uncompromising super sports car which exuded passion,” said BMW Middle East exec Phil Horton. “Its forerunner, the BMW Turbo by Paul Bracq, displayed innovative technical solutions that found their expression in emotional design.”
We’re still not sold on these news, but everyone seems to expect an announcement this week. If you do hear something, you’ll be the first to know.
