I have always thought the Bracq 1972 Gullwing was a nice looking and more interesting car, than the later Giugiaro e26 M1. With an uprated 2002 Turbo engine (200 hp) BMW said it could do 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds and 155 mph. So not much slower than the M1. It also introduced the raised hood powerband :cool:

There is much more to it.

First ever deformable bumpers. Radar assisted braking assistant. Collapsable steering column. First BMW with cockpit angled to driver.
