1972 BMW Turbo X1 E25, 1:43

The BMW Turbo X1 sports car was developed for the 1972 Olympics as a pure technology carrier and as a design item, with which to try out and demonstrate new safety concepts and propulsion technologies.

The breathtaking concept study of the BMW chief designer, at that time, Paul Bracq was simply known as the BMW Turbo. For the first time in Europe, he had used a deformable plastic bumper. The aerodynamic sports car with the extremely flat, sleek bodywork, received as the highlight the characteristic gullwing doors.

The original BMW Turbo X1 was equipped with a 4-cylinder petrol engine from the 02 series. Despite the relatively low cubic capacity of just two litres, thanks to the  turbocharger, with 206 kW and 280 hp it was able to accelerate in about 6.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h.

The BMW Turbo X1 was never mass-produced, although it did provide the foundation stone for the development of the legendary BMW M1. Many of the ideas and design details gained from the vehicle, such as the pop-up headlamps and the two BMW logos on the rear reappeared later on the BMW M1.

Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 1,000 pieces a miniature model of this legendary 1972 BMW Turbo X1, to a scale of 1:43 in the PRO R line.

This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.

In the early summer of 1945, aircraft engineer Fritz M. Fend returned to his home town of Rosenheim. During the war he had been instrumental in the development of the Messerschmitt Me 262. In 1946, he began to develop a human-powered vehicle for the large numbers of disabled war veterans returning from the front, the “Flitzer”. In order to increase mobility, the three-wheeled “Flitzer” was subsequently equipped with a combustion engine. After years of further development and improvement, the time had come in March 1953 to present the first “Messerschmitt cabin scooter”, the KR 175. Success followed very quickly. In 1955 alone, the Messerschmitt factory produced more than 12,000 units of the 9 horsepower KR 200, which sold for 2500 Deutschmarks. The four-wheeled Messerschmitt Tiger, fitted with a 500 cc Fichtel & Sachs engine, was launched in 1958 as the top-of-the-range model with a power output of just 19.5 horsepower – but a top speed of 125 km/h. After a run of only 300 vehicles, production of the Tiger was stopped in autumn 1961, which makes this unusual small vehicle a sought-after and highly valuable collector’s vehicle today.
