Automobile recently revealed that German automaker BMW is still working on the M8, the long-awaited successor to the original 1981 M1. There are still disagreements to be worked over as BMW’s CEO Norbert Reithofer isn’t quite all for it yet, while M Division president Friedrich Nitschke “doesn’t take no for an answers.”
One solution, Automobile offers, is to put the M8 on the same carbon fiber and aluminum platform as the i8. The car is still a ways off but significant steps have been made like the M1 Hommage pictured above.
Enjoy the M1 Hommage concept in the gallery for now and stick around for future news on the M1′s rightful successor.
