Munich Legends are proud to announce the arrival of one of the rarest and most sought after classic cars of the modern era – a beautiful BMW M1. This is the machine that begun it all – the very first M car. Designed in partnership with Lamborghini, raced by legends such as Lauda, Fittipaldi and Piquet (to name but a few) and equipped with one of the most celebrated engines in sports car history, the M1 is a truly iconic car.
Munich Legends has a long history with the M1, having owned and raced Nikki Lauda’s championship winning procar, and recently handled the sale of Johnny Cecotto’s own M1, as well as selling, sourcing and maintaining more M1s than any other BMW specialist.
This very special M1 is a truly stunning example showing only 5000 kms from new, in superb mechanical order, with immaculate white paintwork, and exclusive hand trimmed interior. Manufactured in 1980, and delivered new to an obsessive M1 collector in Switzerland, this M1 (chassis number 4301160) was imported into Britain in 2011 by a UK collector, who has since stored the car. One glance at this magnificent car is enough to set the pulse racing. The famous M88 engine runs with immaculate precision, and the car drives just as a new M1 would have driven the day it left the factory. No other BMW gives the same feeling of intense excitement from the moment the key is turned.
Values of M1s are rising every year, as so many collectors compete to buy the dwindling numbers of examples offered for sale each year. No other BMW offers such potential for future values. Only 453 M1s were made by BMW (source – BMW M-power, published by BMW) of which only a handful remain in this order in Europe.
