It's actually "original" in some way. The M1 kit was sold by Saier Automobile until it was banned by BMW. Of course it would never be a real M1, or an original Matra Murena, but it does have a lot of originality.

There's a German web site dedicated to the subject: http://www.bmw-m1-replica.de/

Same one that Fred started the post with. Look at the right-most picture under the front pic.

This kit has obviously received some major reconstruction. Note all the unpainted areas of "virgin" fiberglass and plastic padding  Shocked

Where would one get all the BMW parts to make it an M1 ? lamps, seats, dash, instruments, etc. etc.

Matranaut par excellence Cool

I'm not normally a fan of the usual crazy Ferrari kit car lookalikes, it's all a bit, well cheap! But I have seen one of these done pretty well, and I think if your going to ruin your Matra, at least this kit looks like an M1 which I always think is a beauty of a shape, there were lots of these looking and sounding very nice at classic le mans.

Has anyone ever produced a body to replace the original murena that wasn't  based on another brand, I.E. Coach builder and please no-one say the Beltouse mess... (sorry personal opinion)
