BMW’s iconic M1 supercar was before its time, and Bimmer fans the world over lament the fact that it hasn’t resurfaced in modern production form (yet). In the meantime, we’ll merely have to gawk at the originals (when we’re fortunate enough to come across these rarities) — and at the M1 Hommage Concept. Echoing the same low and flat M1 dimensions, albeit in a far more muscled iteration, the M1 Hommage was unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este in Italy back in 2008 in celebration of the 30-year anniversary of the original German supercar. Styling elements like the rear quarter panel gills, slender fascia and twin rear roundel emblems are beautifully present on the Hommage, and the translation isn’t lost on us. We’ll just try to keep our hopes alive that BMW will bless the automotive world with another iconic flagship.
