    In reality, the car was only run on tarmac rallies, and even then was just too big and unwieldy.

    Huh, for all the talk about its sound, Codemasters missed the mark, I think.



    The rally efforts were all effectively re-purposed Procar machines. To me it shows that developers are still struggling to balance the mixing needs for internal and external views.

    Nice to have such a niche machine in the game, though.

    Hoping for some more oddball rally cars to show up after this. I only tried the M1 briefly but it was a lot of fun and seriously hardcore with it's sounds and rear end going all over the place. Just get a sense that they'd take any car racing back in those days.

    I recall reading somewhere (maybe the official CM forum?) that the sound currently used in-game is a placeholder and they were working on getting a proper recording of the actual car and patching it in in the near future.

    You may have read it in this article:
    https://www.gtplanet.net/dirt-rally-2-0-season-1-opel-manta-bmw-m1/
    ‘Codemasters has stated the M1’s engine note in today’s update is not the final version. Its proper singing voice will arrive in a patch next week. Update 1.3 is also on the horizon, which will feature numerous bug fixes.’

    Ah well, then I await that with glee given how well they did the (ostensibly similar-sounding) 6R4 justice.
