With the M1 namesake already reserved, BMW have created a potent concept car based on the 1-series coupe quirkily dubbed the ‘Tii’.

This latest concept holds an uncompromising focus on BMW’s motorsport credentials and driver oriented design.

The race bred exterior sports an aerodynamic front air dam, side-sills and rear air dam, while Special gurney flaps generate additional downforce on the rear axle.

Furthermore, the extensive use of carbon components represent a significant reduction in weight against the series production car.

The BMW themed colour palette is tantalizingly stunning, combining the striking Alpine White body colour with contrasting carbon fibre elements with further highlights added in blue keeping with the BMW theme.

The interior has been tailored to provide a harmonious union of car and driver, the dash comprises of a speedo reaching a hopeful 280km/h,offset by a prominent white tacho which is all business.

A personal favourite are the colour coded seat belts, blue for the driver and white for the passenger, with matching colour coded stitching on immaculate racing seats.

This spectacular package sits on dark chrome 18-inch light-alloy rims which conceal enormous blue BMW branded brakes teasing cross drilled and slotted rotors.

Unfortunately, despite the strong focus on driving performance, BMW have not released any details on the powerplant which breathes life and credibility into its stunning design.
