BMW M1 Hommage even cooler in real-life

No words, images nor videos can quite do the M1 Hommage justice. Not only is it strikingly styled, but its wonderfully deep and multi-faceted orange paint has to be seen to be believed.

Melbourne Motor Show 2009 No words, images nor videos can quite do the M1 Hommage justice. Not only is it strikingly styled, but its wonderfully deep and multi-faceted orange paint has to be seen to be believed.

Almost a year ago we saw pictures of the BMW M1 Hommage's unveiling at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este and as breathtaking as it looked then, nothing quite prepared us for what we saw at this year's Melbourne show.

Its low and wide stance is the supercar norm, and it would sit quite comfortably next to a posse of Lamborghinis and Ferraris. The M1 Hommage's body has a myriad of slashes, cuts, and concave and convex curves, which catches the light in all types of interesting and fascinating ways.

When the car was first launched unto the world, there was much speculation as to what type of engine it would be running, and what types of tech it would be carrying. With the world economy listing uncomfortably amongst a flotilla of financial icebergs, the likelihood of this car ever making production has all but disappeared. As such, the M1 Hommange can now be admired for what it is: a piece of automotive art.
