It’s been over three decades since production of the BMW M1 ended back in 1981. Since then, fans of the German supercar have been waiting for its successor. The closest taste we’ve had of a revival was the M1 Homage, a concept created in 2008 to celebrate the car’s 30th anniversary.

For Giom Mouton, a South African rendering artist, the wait has become unbearable. So, he’s taken matters into his own hands and has created a new M1 Design Study.
Mouton released images of a GT3-styled M1 concept and a standard version on his Facebook page yesterday, Oct. 26. These images show an incredible car concept, the likes of which we haven’t seen since the M1 itself. Its long, sloping lines and wide rear are exactly what you’d want in a supercar. Collaborating with these supercar design cues are various notes of BMW design, including the grill and the GT-3 version’s livery. One of the best parts? This concept has a mid-engine setup, just like the original M1.
Check out the concept below and let us know if you think BMW should make something similar to this in the comments section.
