Hi All,

Here is the BMW GT M1. Got these pics via email. This looks stunning.

Is this a concept or a production model? Looks far too impractical to be a production vehicle.

Thumbs up Whoa!!

Whoa!! This car looks like it'll pounce on any one else on the road aka. Transformers

I think this M1 homage is still in concept car stage.

LOL this thing looks funny for sure. I hope BMW doesn't build it.

It does have a really evil, menacing mean streak to it.

Very futuristic indeed! All the sharp angles gives the machine a menacing stance!

From a practical perspective, I see two issues:
1. Really low ground clearance and clearance between the wheels and wheel wells
2. typical low-slung sports car seating would have been fine, had it not been for the huge bonnet, which will hamper visibility up front

These may typically be taken care of in converting the model to a production car.

Like what Jezza says... Hideous !! seems BMW has sacked all its designers due to his recession and the designing is done by stoneman of Fantastic 4.

Looks like something Batman would use for a supermarket run! Wicked!

As for the rest of us, a toned down version would do nicely.

Default Fairy Tale

It was a rainy night. The red transformers robot was trundling home when it met queen frog in distress. They spent the night together, and 9 months later the BMW Gt M1 was born.

Hideous, and an insult to the original M1.

Anyway, what are the tech specs to this thing? No info? Where's Ayan?

This seems to be a premature one . It was born a FROGOBOT, while exhibiting transformers characteristics, it resulted into this.

Looks good, though from some angles, the front looks a notch higher than the rear. Having said that, the cars stance is extremely aggressive. Loved the picture of the full frontal.
