Bmw_m1homage_3 BMW ruled out the possibility to build the M1 Homage, but a new report has confirmed a future production version of the concept car.

In an interview with Car magazine, BMW board member, Herbert Diess, has revealed that the M1 Homage previews a supercar that the carmaker plans to launch in the near future. This news doesn’t come as a surprise. BMW has been working for a longtime on how to reach the £100,000 growing market segment.

The future supercar is said to be a rear-engined vehicle which will be focused on sports. Despite a visual link with the legendary M1, the future model won't feature its moniker. Also unlike the M1, the future supercar will feature a wide range of engines with six, eight and ten cylinder units. The Audi R8 and the Lamborghini will likely be its fiercest competitors.

although im one of the greatest fans of bmw i should say that m1 is a beautiful copy of lamborghini with some nice diffrences in the front that makes it a bmw rather than a lamborghini.
