Since the M1's departure, BMW’s had a sort of empty halo car slot. I suppose we’ve had the Z8 and the 8 Series, but none of those really punched like the M1 did. It must be why an M1 will now sell for about $700,000.

And as for the i8, I’m sorry to say that I don’t find it comparable, either. Don’t get me wrong, I think it looks incredible. Its sound and what drives it just don’t excite me as much.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look at pictures of M1s and decide which of my organs I can sell so I can buy one.
