The 1978 BMW M1 designed by Giorgetto Guigiaro, is the first mid-engine car produced by the company. The Pro Car illustrated here, formed part of Jochen Neerpasch’s ’one make’ competition series to aid BMW in building enough cars to enter the group 4 classification in the World Championship for Makes. The "Procar BMW M1 Championship", also served as a support series for Formula One, and included many Formula One drivers in identical cars. The series ran for two years, with Niki Lauda winning the 1979 season, and Nelson Piquet the 1980 season.
