Black Orpheus: BMW M1









BMW M1

The BMW M1 is getting closer to achieving iconic status, at least in part because of its rarity. In the above series for Classic Driver, international jet-setting man of style Jan Baedeker pays tribute to the BMW M1 and its sublime Uber-Minimal Dieter-Rams-Style design. 

The BMW M1 was styled by Giorgetto Giugiaro who also created the Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT, the DeLorean DMC-12 and the Lotus Esprit S1. Only 456 production M1s were built, making it one of BMW's rarest models.
