Thumbs up

I have heard genuine talk that Motorsport tried one prototype car with the M1's 277 bhp 24 valve 3.5 in the e12, but in the end they chose the 2 valve 218 bhp because they thought that was enough. At the time the 6 series had only just got the 3.5 in Europe, and the most powerful 5 series was the 528i, so I suppose if you were tootling along in a 50 bhp VW Golf 1100 then 218 bhp was mighty indeed.

Inspiration for the M1 came from the 1972 BMW Turbo gullwing, which was styled by Paul Bracq. 155 mph top speed from an uprated 2002 Turbo engine.
