KK Scale BMW M1 (E26) Street 1978

KK Scale is launching the BMW M1 street version in 1:12 scale.  If true to form the model should be diecast metal with a sealed-body exterior.  Only 600 units will be placed into production.  Suggested retail about $249US.

About the BMW M1…  “The BMW M1, which was built from 1978 to the end of 1981, was a so-called supercar and is today one of the most iconic young cars from that time. The body of the BMW M1 is built on a tubular frame. Very many parts of the car program of the time of BMW use. An outwardly striking feature is the rear lights used in BMW 6 Series. For BMW atypical was the use of pop-up headlamps, which were necessary because of the then American regulations regarding the lamp height at the aerodynamically flat front.”

    The model is five times more expensive, and it looks worse than the analogue in scale 1/18 by Norev.

    everyone is jumping on the 1/12 sealed car hype these days… i suppose good news for 1/12 collectors since there aren’t that many 1/12 models out there but i just don’t find any of these to be excited about considering the sealed nature.. just a big block of metal or chunk of plastic carved out to look like car LOL
