BMW has revealed details about a green supercar that will have it’s starting point on the M1 Hommage. The eco-friendly BMW could be even on the market by 2012. The car is set to show off all of BMW’s environmental qualifications, perhaps giving this segment the luxurious touch it needs. Technology that’s being used on this vehicle could include stop-start systems, direct injection and recharge braking.

The source is strangely silent though, on the engine range to be utilised, citing a number of models that could be employed, and even including the possibility of a hybrid model. We could take this as an evolutionary moment in the supercar sector, which to stay alive, is going to need some new, environmentally-friendly life. A supercar model will also help BMW compete with the likes of the Audi R8 and the Mercedes Slr.
