1980 BMW M1 on sale for $250,000
Do you have an extra $250,000 in your pocket and the desire to buy a legendary car? Well how about a 1980 BMW M1 supercar, the first and only mid-engined BMW. And with only 456 units built you can be sure you’ll have a piece of history in your garage. The car is for sale in Scotts Valley, California and only has 26,999 miles on the odometer.
With a 24-valve cylinder head, the engine had 277 hp at 6500 rpm and develops 239 ft/lb of torque at 5000 rpm. It was capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds and of hitting a top speed of 162 mph. The BMW M1 was developed in cooperation with Lamborghini and designed by Giugiaro. When it went on sale in 1978, the M1 was priced at $45,000, so it seems the car has really aged like a fine wine to be put up for $250K.
So this might be your chance to own a vintage BMW supercar before the new Vision inspired supercar from BMW debuts in 2015. Let’s see how the price of this 1980 BMW inflates once the new supercar is unveiled!
