Hey guys and gals! We FIND and PROMOTE people's work, we never take credit for things we haven't written, we just love sharing the things that are interesting, but if you don't want your work or pictures shown, please let me know and I'll take it off, we're not trying to harm any one here or infringe on anyone's copyrights, just late night entertainment for my friends and I after a long days of work.

We're not making money off the site, nor are we publishing anything to other places through feedburner claiming that it's our work, just a hobby of finding cool things around the internet, that's all. Sometimes we copy and paste too quickly and a link giving you credit doesn't appear, if that's the case and you DO want your work promoted, we will add in the backlink, we would love to give credit where credit is due!

Please contact me or drop a comment on any posts you guys don't want up and I'll take it off within 24 hours, thanks!

BMW Presents M1 Homage Concept Car - TechnoRide


In a nod to the 30th anniversary of the fabled BMW M1 supercar, BMW Group Design just launched a new concept car that acts as a homage to it—and that's also what they named it. At the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este 2008 this week, the company debuted the BMW M1 Homage, which they call a "design study in the tradition of a BMW Turbo that represents a contemporary take on the BMW M1 and the mid-engine concept."


The concept's Liquid Orange paint is meant as a tribute to the original car's color, The air vents in the hood, the twin rear badges, the rear window louvers, and the black cutline that separates the roofline from the rear of the car are also details that made it into the new version. The dimensions are mostly the same as the original except for an extended wheelbase for more interior room. The headlights almost disappear into the car when closed, as a kind of new iteration of the long-since-gone retractable lamps of old (which the M1 had, along with Porsche 944s, Pontiac Firebirds, and countless other sports cars of the era).


There's no word on anything underneath the skin, but let's hope they decide to build it. After all, the original BMW M1 began life as a show car, before entering production in a joint bid with Lamborghini to build enough race cars for homologation purposes
