  • David says:

    Why it’s not called M1 instead of M Series? Or does the M1 already exist?

  • Admin says:

    Yes, the BMW M1 was a sports car that was produced by BMW from 1978 to 1981.
    That’s why BMW doesn’t call this 1 series M the M1

  • Morris Clifton says:

    I disagree so why cant there be another M1 .It would give this vehicle identity it deserves .M vehicles are all direratives of BMW models anyways….
