1980 BMW M1

This M1 model was the first of the famous M line by the premium German automaker, the first is certainly a memorable piece and will remain as a part of automobile history. It did have quite a complicated birth, it was initially designed by Giugiaro and commissioned by Lamborghini to assemble and build it, but financial issues of the Italian supercar brand made it impossible and BMW had to find an alternate solution, so they used Transformazione Italiana Resina to make the fibreglass bodywork which was later assembled and bonded at Marchesi, also responsible for all the rest of the bodywork, dashboard, seats and electrical wiring. The car was then shipped to Germany to get the 3.5l mid-engine along with the 5 speed ZF transmission and the fine tuning and road testing necessary before the actual sale. This model was totally refurbished with a full engine restoration, all the work done is registered and available for buyers to confirm. If you’re into this prototype with an unforgettable look as well as true German premium performance be sure to check out this one out, it is number 265 of a total of only 399 cars.

FEROX AZARIS

The crazy Ferox Azaris is a six wheeled off-road advanced vehicle with four hydraulic motors. Unlike a conventional electric motor, or indeed an internal-combustion engine, each motor is driven by a liquid that is 95 percent water. Fluid is pumped into ports inside the wheel hub, which pushes on a series of gates tasked with rotating the outer housing of the motor and, in turn, the wheel to which they are attached. A BMW R1200GS motorbike engine powers the pump, whi...
