LaLD Car Week 2019 - 2000's - BMW M1 Hommage

1:18 Scale - Norev 2008 BMW M1 Hommage.

I was originally going to use this for the 2010's, but then I realized this was a 2008 concept. Ahead of its time I guess.

It is interesting that this hommage is a throwback to the M1 from 30 years prior, yet somehow still looks so futuristic, while retaining that iconic Giugiaro wedge.

This is one of my few 1:18 scale models. It is also one of my few Norev models. I find the detailing not as good as some others but somehow the simplicity works.

In true concept fashion, there are no opening doors and the windows are completely blacked out, as if it is still a clay model. But the wheels still turn, I wonder if there is a little steering wheel that turns in there too.

Pardon my dust. I should have kept the canned air handy. :)

Ultimately, the best thing about this model is probably the packaging.
