BMW M1 Procar

by Italeri
SKU 3643

The BMW M1 was produced by the Bavarian car manufacturer between 1978 and 1981. Characterized by a markedly sporty design, it adopted technical solutions typical of racing cars such as the longitudinal central engine, trellis frame and independent suspension. Developed and built to participate in Group 5 competitions, where it obtained some sporadic victories, BMW decided to create a ProCar one-make championship. The cars that took part in the championship were equipped with a powerful 470 HP engine and were driven, among others, by famous names from the world of Formula 1 such as Piquet, De Angelis, Pironi and Niki Lauda. The Procar championship was very popular and had, for the time, great visibility in the media. The championship was raced for two years.
