The Legends car returns!
The BMW M1 Procar is still a central component in the history of BMW M. Designed as a racing car with road approval, the vehicle found its way into private hands not only as a super sports car. With a racing series created especially for the model, BMW M consolidated its legendary status. One thing is certain: even 40 years after the debut of the first race, the BMW M1 Procar continues to impress with its highly developed technology, unique design and exceptional performance.
In 1979 and 1980, the BMW Procar Series was one of the most spectacular racing series in the motorsport world. As part of most european Formula 1 races, the five fastest F1 drivers from the practice runs of the respective Grand Prix took part in it on identical BMW M1s and competed against private drivers, well-known sports car professionals and young talents - hardly imaginable today in this way, the series offered a spectacular showdown that became a great public success. The overall winner of the first Procar season was Niki Lauda. The following year, Nelson Piquet secured first place in the overall standings with three wins in a row.
This car is also a welcome guest at the legendary Gaisberg race. The faithful model is available in the Carrera fleet!
A racing legend with plenty of power
After the end of the BMW Procar Series in autumn 1980, various BMW M1 racing versions also competed successfully with the competition in Le Mans and various national championships (including the German Automobile Racing Championship and the American IMSA GTO Championship).
The Carrera car corresponds to the original with which the well-known racing driver Hans-Joachim Struck once made his rounds. But not only the extraordinary design, but also the functioning lights for front and rear as well as brake and the individual adjustability of the vehicle by means of coding bring this slot car far forward!
