Barely Driven BMW M1 with Less than 3,000 Miles on the Odo up for Sale on eBay

Today’s eBay find brings us a seemingly immaculate BMW M1 from 1980 that’s offered up for an undisclosed price. One of 455 (albeit some bring this number down to 451) examples ever built, this one is finished in a classic red hue with a black interior. Claimed to be in original condition, the seller says it has been driver a mere 4,418 kilometers or 2,747 miles since it left the Bavarian automaker’s factory some 31 years ago.

According to the eBay listing, the M1 was “garaged for all of its life and pampered” in a German private residence, before it was imported in the U.S. having surpassed the 25-year age requirement. At the time we wrote this article, the current bid on the car was US$130,500, but the reserve had not been met.

The M1 came to life in 1978 at the Paris Motor Show as the M divisions first ever creation. Designed by the famous Giorgetto Giugiaro and developed in association with Lamborghini, the M1 was initially intended for the racetrack, but BMW produced a limited run of street-legal models. These were all powered by a mid-mounted naturally aspirated 3.5-liter straight-six delivering 277-horses, and hooked up to a five-speed manual gearbox. The M1 could reach a top speed of 260 km/h or 162 mph.
