Although the model that BMW presented us during the 1970s and early 1980s we not exactly the best there is, it was pretty much the brightest moment that these vehicles ever reached. It seems like that this is the right moment for BMW M1 to shine judging by the growing lineup with the like of the i8 and i3. There are pretty optimistic cheers from the Automobile Magazine who believe that current hard at work at this concept for a possible debut in 2014 a t an auto show is going to be a success.
2016 BMW M1: Concept
It seems like the famous 2016 BMW M1 got a lot of thing remodeled. Effort was put into the monocoque chassis made of extremely stiff carbon fiber. Not only that the exterior looks pleasant to eyes it also weights fairly less – only only 2,750 lbs. They managed to make it this slim using a mixture of carbon fiber, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and high-strength steel. This all led to creation of highly aerodynamic body that is like adding 100 horsepower to any engine. Now how did they achieve that? By adding numerous fins along the body to direct the wind around the vehicle and transfers it into useful energy, as opposed to useless drag. Pretty neat, right?
2016 BMW M1: News, Engine
They said that they found the right engine for 2016 BMW M1. After ruling out the 6-cylinder option, they made a decision and called it a day with the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 which is expected to perform between 600 to 650 horsepower. Nothing less than a super-fast shifting dual clutch transmission in order to support this powerful guy. It seems like this German company did their math right cause this kind of combination of high power, quick shift, and light weight would give the M1 a top speed of 205 mph and a 0 to 62 mph time of roughly 3 seconds. For this almost forgotten model this would be a super launch among flashy names like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti. Although these are all speculations and nothing is still 100% sure, we have our fingers crossed for historical BMW M1. It would be really nice to see all of this showing off on the roads soon, in 2016 BMW M1.
