Wrecked BMW M1 Rebuilt And Used As Wall Art
In 2015 a 1980 BMW M1 went on auction but it was well past the point of repair so someone decided to buy it for spare parts.
This someone already owned two M1’s at the time so this wrecked example would be perfect for spare parts for the two working cars but he did not just scrap the newly purchased BMW because after removing the engine, he got it completely rebuilt it and put it on display.
It did not stop there though because little while later, he came upon another BMW M1. This one had been burned in a building fire and most of its body panels had melted off. So the collector bought the melted M1 as well, thinking he could combine its parts with the wrecked car’s and make one, fully functioning M1.
This proved to be way too much trouble so instead combined the two cars and made a perfect replica M1 (finished in M1 red) to hang on his garage wall and it looks tremendous!
