1 of 397 production road cars built from 1978 to 1981, this extremely rare 1980 M1 coupe pairs that powerplant with its original 5-speed gearbox. It is also one of 97 M1 coupes finished in Orange and incorporates a ProCar-Style front spoiler, the original factory Campagnolo wheels with Pirelli tires and correct Black cloth and leather interior. A three-owner car, it shows just 36,000 original kilometers on its European odometer, which translates to a mere 22,400 miles.

The M1 was BMW Motorsports attempt to get into prototype racing. M1 coupes were produced from 1978 through 1981. The Italian designed body was originally conceived to be a joint effort between BMW and Lamborghini, however ultimately the cars were hand-built and finished in house at BMW with less than 500 built. These cars raced in Europe and in the US under FIA rules in Group 4 and Group 5 with moderate success. Today these cars are highly prized collectibles. With a 3.5 litre engine producing approximately 270hp, through 5 spd ZF transaxle, it generated plenty of power in street trim as compared to the 450hp race car version. This rare German exotic is finished in its factory Inka Orange color and the interior is trimmed out with black leather and cloth upholstery. It is stock appearing with the factory Campagnolo alloy wheels but also has a “Procar” series style front air dam. Hold on tight, this Munich Missile will set you back hard in the seat as it fires down the Autobahn.
