BMW’s Iconic M1 Looks Outstanding As The Striking Cyberpunk ‘Prowler’

With its mid-engine layout, its gorgeous Giugiaro-designed wedge-shaped body, and its extremely limited run of 453 examples, the M1 remains the only true supercar BMW has ever made. But despite the fact that the last one rolled out of BMW’s Munich factory 40 years ago, the M1 continues to inspire, as seen in this stunning concept.

Designed and rendered by Harsh Sokal, “The Prowler” is a futuristic BMW M1 concept that seems more destined for Cyberpunk 2077 than a BMW showroom — but that’s just fine by us. Executed in metallic burnt-orange, the car is unmistakably M1 in overall shape, but a number of major tweaks give it a personality all its own. The pop-up headlights have been removed, and all other lights have been swapped for LEDs. The body has been slammed and much of the trim color-matched for a sleeker look. The wheel arches have been greatly exaggerated, and aero discs have been added to the front wheels. But the most dramatic changes arrive via the aerodynamic ground effects, with an integrated front splitter and a wild oversized hanging rear diffuser offering up a double-dose of aggression.
