It happens every day, for multiple reasons their owners cease to use them, and in many cases will languish in a corner until someone rescues them. What is not frequent is laugh, joke with a BMW M1, one of the sport’s most rare and expensive today.

On this occasion, the finding is the responsibility of the specialist in German classics Mint Classics. With headquarters in Munich, this company focuses primarily on the models of the signature bavarian, with an extensive repertoire of models of Alpina and the division Motorsport, among which we find several M1 of the street and the M1 Procar, including the iconic M1 with the spectacular red livery of ‘BASF’.
