Report: BMW M1 still in the rumor mill, use of i8 tech likely

BMW is obviously learning a lot from their new family of i cars, which serve up the latest and greatest in weight saving technology in a rather reachable automotive package–the i3 and i8. That said, in lieu of recent rumors involving a highly-anticipated BMW supercar to follow in the wake of the M1, word is from Australia’s CarAdvice.com learned that the Roundel will be using what they learned from the research and development of the i8.

The M1-successor hasn’t been confirmed, but BMW M’s Friedrich Nitschke apparently shed some light on the matter not too long ago and has since then reinvigorated the rumor of a highly sought-after mid-engined BMW supercar. Since then, nothing has been exactly confirmed.

Not too long ago, rumors surfaced suggesting that BMW could be building the supercar to celebrate the brand’s centennial of existence in 2016. Among those rumors, power rated between 600-650hp provided by a retuned 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8.
