This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
The racing version of the BMW M1 was launched in 1978. The road version that had been exhibited at the Paris Motor Show had been altered to comply with Group 4 rules. The engine had also been upgraded: it now had 24 valves giving it 460 bhp. The top speed of the M1 Pro-Car was about 310 kph.
The car came to the forefront of the European Formula 1 Grand Prix races from 1979 onwards. In these Pro-Car races, 20 absolutely identical M1 cars raced against each other, 15 of which were driven by private drivers, the other 5 by F1 pilots. All the M1s had the same spoiler and aileron to improve road-holding. Thus driving skills, not technology, decided the winning or losing positions.
