During the 2022 & 2019 GoodwoodFestival of Speed, The content Creator has filmed a beautiful BMW M1 Procar in action on the hill climb. This particular Procar was built by F1 team Osella Squadra Corse and is one of only two to be delivered to the BMW Italia team. It's won at Zolder back in 1979, piloted by Elio de Angelis, but the car's American history is where things get interesting. Juan Pablo Montoya's nephew (and F1 driver) Diego Montoya bought the car after it had won 12 out of the 16 races it entered for the IMSA GT Championship back in '81. Back in the day, M fitted the car with a 3.5-liter inline-six engine, a close approximation of what you could also get in the road car. In race trim, the Procar M1s made around 470 hp depending on regulations. In Group 5, that number could sometime climb north of 1,000 hp, but it's unlikely this car ever saw such numbers. Regardless, that 470 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque made for a healthy 192 mph top speed. We hope you enjoy the video!
