9. BMW M1
Imagine BMW and Lamborghini joining forces in an attempt to produce the ultimate supercar. German engineering and Italian design. I don’t think there’s a better combination than that in automotive world. Well, that’s exactly what had happened in late seventies. Although these iconic manufacturers didn’t exactly manage to produce an icon, BMW M1 is at least grandfather of the current M lineup. Notice that Lamborghini badge doesn’t appear in final product’s name. That’s because the Italians pulled their resources from the project, thus leaving the Germans with complete rights over the car. Although fast with 273-hp straight-six engine and a top speed of 162 mph, M1 needed 6.1 seconds in order to reach 60 mph.
