The freshly exposed M1 Homage plan inquiry, displayed at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2008, recapitulated the M1’s revolutionary plan and at the same time honored the anniversary of its universe. The M1 was the first BMW M car, but it was built primarily as a homologation unusual for the ProCar race cycle.
