BMW M1 Gets LEGO Build In Both Street And Racing Versions

With a creative mind and the right LEGO pieces, you can recreate pretty much anything using the small bricks. As for this enthusiast, he chose to immortalize the iconic BMW M1, in both street-legal and racing guise.

The first one uses 986 pieces, whereas the wide body kit, rear wing and perhaps other updates over the regular M1 have raised the number of bricks used to 1,059 in the racing variant. Both feature opening doors, hoods and functioning steering, but, most importantly, they look ready to hit the shelves.

Produced between 1978 and 1981, the BMW M1 was the brand’s first mid-engined supercar. It was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and was initially assembled in Turin, Italy, before moving to Munich, Germany, for the final process.

To this day, it remains the company’s sole supercar, and with 453 units made, it’s no wonder that its value has increased significantly. A couple of years ago, we saw one listed for $745,000 (€663,431). Since then, low-mileage examples are now changing hands for just shy of €1 million ($1.1 million), whereas those that are in have been driven more often go for more than €500,000 ($560,000).

Keep in mind that a new M5 starts from €119,600 ($134,288) in Germany and the M850i xDrive Coupe has an MSRP of €125,700 ($141,137), and you get the picture.
