BMW M1 PROCAR Hommage by jonsibal BMW M1 PROCAR Hommage by jonsibal
As a BMW fanatic, I was excited when BMW Group Design unveiled the design study M1 Hommage Concept Car at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este 2008 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the legendary M1 by Giugiaro. My first thoughts were “Oh cool, what about the ProCar?”

So I got working on a full rendering on how an M1 Hommage ProCar might look like if it were ever produced.

The Design Process - Rebirth of an Icon:
I began the process by studying the different angles of the M1 Concept Car to get a feel for the lines, shapes and curvature of the body. And with any BMW concept car, the design and contours are all new which required a ProCar body kit that suits these lines properly. The "flamed surface" is very evident so to properly convert this M1 to the ProCar, all of these design elements needed to be considered. I sketched out a new wide body kit design making sure that it stays true to the BMW design language by continuing the new lines of the concept car. The front fascia was also modified and given the updated ProCar look. So with Photoshop CS, the new design was applied and rendered. The BMW M1 ProCar is basically a raced-out version of the original street M1 so the addition of the race rear wing was important to complete the conversion along with new super deep dish wheels.

Here is the base image I started with: [link]

Rock on brotha! Excellent work! I especially like the line: "I sketched out a new wide body kit design making sure that it stays true to the BMW design language by continuing the new lines of the concept car." That shows a respect for the concept car and for BMW.

Good job and...

Keep up the Good work!

Dude... that's way better than the original M1 concept. More aggressive, more stylish. It's something I'd really love to see on the track. :)

I not fan of BMW design, older or the new one. (Audi owns my heart :) ).
The concept was ok, but didn't make me jump up & down, but your interpretation? Simply excellent, i like the visible "muscles" and the big wing. But the part that sold it to me is the reworked front fascia - its simple, aggressive and simply beautifully styled.

Excellent work mate.
