Two broken BMW M1 combined into one and turned into an art objectAugust 28, 2018
Collector built an installation for his garage from two broken BMW M1
Unknown collector, registered on the site of Bring A Trailer under the name PKI, turned two smashed sports car BMW M1 into an art object. To do this, we had to make a lightweight aluminum frame on which the original body, interior and engine were hung. To give the car the appearance of a show car, it was painted in a corporate shade of red.
In his post, PKI said that he bought the first M1 in 2015. The car was seriously damaged in the accident in 1985, and since then it has been unrepaired. The sports car was to become a donor of spare parts for other Emok from the PKI collection. The first thing on the car was restored the engine and the box, which was installed on a special stand.
The second BMW M1 PKI bought the turn of the year. The car was also seriously damaged: because of the fire, it completely burned out the rear of the body. At first the new owner wanted to collect one of the two cars, but then decided that it was better to turn them into an installation for a garage.
This is not the first time that a car becomes part of the interior decor. So, the driver and collector of supercars Pagani Pablo Perez used the carbon body Zonda Revolucion as an interior partition. However, unlike the BMW M1, there are no mechanical units and assemblies in the “Zonda”.
