This stunning M1 started life as a spare car for the BMW M1 Procar Championship, held between 1979-1980, but never saw any track action until much later in life. More recently the car was acquired by Bruce Canepa who undertook a complete restoration so that the M1 now looks, feels and drives like a brand new car. Of the 40 original Procars produced this is the only road going example in the world.
Using many original Procar parts, such as suspension uprights, hubs, control arms, tie rods, axles, mirrors, Procar body kit and rear wing, and 17 inch BBS rims they brought the looks of the M1 up to the original specs and upgraded a few parts, such as the brakes – which are now Brembo calipers from a Porsche 962. The engine was rebuilt and now produces 414 bhp and the 5-speed manual gearbox refurbished.
