BMW only ever made one true supercar: The M1. It was the first M car ever, equipped with a mid-mounted, race-derived straight-six engine, a manual transmission, and looks to die for. Collectors are scooping them up left and right. But this example on eBay is still up for grabs, and it might be the best one we've ever seen.
This 1981 M1 is finished in a stunning dark blue, and comes with the car's fantastically styled slotted wheels. It's only done around 8000 miles since new, and according to the ad, it's seen a whole lot of traveling. The description sums it up pretty well.
We recently met the owner of an incredible 1981 BMW M1. A former journalist who was invited personally by BMW to purchase one of the last supercars produced. He took delivery of the car in Germany and never looked back. A true enthusiast, the M1 followed him during his incredible career that brought him and the M1 to almost every continent. South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico, Arizona and eventually Miami.
And it's not like this car was just kept in a garage and driven on weekends. No, this car has been places.
During that time the car was brought to car shows, displayed at BMW dealers and lovingly cherished. A combination of period photos, car show placards, old registration stickers and original Pirelli P7 tires tell the incredible story of an M1 and its loving owners 36 years together.
The catch, of course, is the price. The seller is , equivalent to around two Ferrari 812 Superfasts or 26 Mazda Miatas. It's a high price, but considering this is arguably the best example of BMW's only supercar, we think it's justified. How could you say no to a radio as perfect as this?
