Description

The Wind Splitter is a rename of the BMW M1, released in the 1983 mainline. The BMW M1 (E26) is a sports car produced by German automaker BMW from 1978 to 1981. In the late 1970s, Italian manufacturer Lamborghini entered into an agreement with BMW to build a production racing car in sufficient quantity for homologation, but conflicts arose that prompted BMW to produce the car themselves. The result was sold to the public, from 1978 to 1981, as the BMW M1. It is the first mid-engined BMW to be mass-produced. It employs a twin-cam 3.5 L six-cylinder petrol engine with mechanical fuel injection. The engine has six separate throttle bodies, four valves per cylinder and produces 273 hp (204 kW) in the street version, giving a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph). Turbocharged racing versions are capable of producing around 850 hp (634 kW).

The Wind Splitter was named BMW M1 in 1983 and later re-released as Street Dog, in 1993.
