Thumbs up BMW M1 rendering from Autozeitung. Aero kit very close to actual M1.

New rendering of the M1, from german car magazine(Autozeitung). Sorry only an Iphone-Pic. On sale, Summer 2011, and 355 bhp, 0-60 mph under 5 seconds, and M3 suspension!!! M1 concept expected at Geneva Auto Show.

From Scott26 below:

Minus the LED strips? Or decorative metallic bars in this representation.
The look is very close to the aerodynamic pack that adorns the M1.

Motorsport Nostaligia meets Present day Personalisation.

When introduced as a Concept precursor to the BMW performance packet for the 1er Coupe. The Tii Concept introduced a modern day approach to personalisation.

Having already established a successful personalisation programme for the MINI brand. Concept Tii introduced the early stages to what can be achieved for the BMW brand.

The Tii Concept unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2007 in a land where personalisation is a common theme amongst younger domestic japanese customers previewed the imminent BMW Performance range a customisation package for the 1er Coupe.

Although the BMW Performance package has been established. BMW are still aware of the After market companies that offer enthusiasts more diversity some at the cost to the official BMW warranty.

The M1 aims to be a new form of concept for BMW by offering a personalisation programme to the specific demographic although the elements will be purely cosmetic.

Although introduced on the BMW 1er Coupe Tii Concept but never carried over to the BMW Performance range was the Carbon Fibre bonnet.

The BMW M1 will offer as a part of the personalisation programme this feature as well as an optional Carbon Fibre bootlid with integrated Spoiler. other Carbon Fibre features to be presented as options include mirrors , front splitters , rear valance and side skirts. This will allow the customer to add these additional lightweight aids to the standard Carbon Fibre Roof.

Taking a look back from history will be the return of M stripes which can be ordered in the M Tri-color or in Alpine White or Ferric Grey. The stripes can be ordered to be placed on each the left , central or right hand side of the car allowing a continuation from the front of the car's facia flowing over the roof right down to the rear bumper. M-Bonnet Stripes can also be ordered being placed MINI style on the grooves of the hood. Additional stripes can be incorporated along the side "character line" across the car , classic reversed "Turbo" signs can

Alloy wheel choices will begin with standard 18" 5 spoke wheels in two finishes , optional will be 18" competition wheels again in two finishes. BMW shadowline chrome can be extended to the front kidney grilles and rear exhaust ports. A titanium effect finish will be an option.

The interior will offer a Motorsport haven by a combination of standard Sports seats in a combination of leather , half-leather full fabric using an M Tri-Color pattern on the central part of the seats and door panels similar in effect to the classic E30 series M3 Evo.

The Dash area of the car will offer Unique Carbon Fibre dash cappings as well as aluminium effect , Titanium and body color which extends to the door grabs and gearbox surround . Alacantra for the seats and roof headlining will be an option.

Matte Paint options will be exclusive to the M1 and available in Frozen Grey and Black and Ice White. additional colors will carry over from other M Vehicles along with colors exclusive to the M1 including a new update of "Techno Violet"

The Tii Concept and the addition of BMW Performance has established that there is a market for an in-house personalisation programme for M vehicles although aimed at the cosmetic aspect additional Performance upgrades will be introduced as an extended vehicle option.

The BMW M1 will be the test case for the M Personalisation programme but it is highly likely the M3 will eventually offer something similar.

Whoa....those are some scary proportions. Thing looks stretched in some areas and shrunk in others. Looks like a pre-schooler made that rendering.

I don't see the famous M gills, either.

I think it is also the incorporation of the rear wide body that makes it look stretched, and high off the ground with what look like 19s.

I would love the M1 to have the gills.

Not to be a downer.....but personally I hate the gills.

So tired of seeing gills now on all cars. Plus the idiot far east cars that have gill stickers on their cars. Seriously, the gills serve no purpose, so ommit them and give me a clean fender design.

I think that aero kit looks awesome. Rendering makes the thing look like a beast.

Although I hope the car is ugly as sin so I am not tempted to buy it.
