The BMW 8 Series (code: E31) is a two seat Grand Touring coupe built between 1989 to 1999 with either a V8 or V12 engine. In some ways, it is both a replacement and upgrade on the 6 series.
The BMW M1 is a two seat sports car produced by BMW between 1978 to 1981. The car body was designed by Giugiaro and it arose out of an ill-fated project with Lamborghini.
It has a mid-engined 3.5 litre, 6 cylinder fuel injected engine developing 277 PS (204 kW; 273 hp). A racing version of the M1 was fitted with a turbocharger and produced about 850 hp (634 kW).
