Stunning BMW 1M Coupe finished in Valencia Orange over Black Leather. 1 of 450 UK cars. BMW Warranty until May 2024.
The BMW 1 Series M Coupe or ‘1M’ sprung to life in October of 2009. There wasn’t a lot of budget set aside for fun “what ifs” just shortly after the Great Recession. So, the car actually was a secret after hours project deep inside the M skunkworks in München. With limited financial support there wasn’t really much room for developing bespoke parts so the 1M borrowed a significant amount directly from the E92 M3, including the brakes, the differential, the rear axle, the Competition wheels and the wing mirrors.
Power came from the punchy N54 3.0L twin-turbo straight-six. This produces a healthy 340 hp and 450 Nm’s of torque which increases quickly to 500 Nm’s thanks to an overboost function. Further changes were reworked fascia and most noticeably, those arches. With all the M3 chassis upgrades the car width was increased by 44 mm at the back and a massive 71 mm at the front in comparison to the 135i.
The BMW 1M was only available for a limited time, with many cars being registered in 2011, and a few in 2012. A total of 6,331 units were delivered to Europe and America - with the UK receiving just 450 right-hand drive examples.
The car we are pleased to offer for sale was supplied to Aberdeen in July, 2011 and is finished in the launch colour of Valencia Orange with Black Boston leather and Kylami stitching. Additional factory options include 19 Inch Y Spoke M Sport Alloys, Professional Navigation, Harman Kardon Surround Sound, Heated Front Seats, Bluetooth, Auto Dim Mirrors, Xenon Headlights, Cruise Control, Park Distance Control, USB Audio Interface, Sun Protection Glass, Storage Compartment Package, and High-Beam Assist.
The car presents superbly, showing under 35,000 miles from new and maintains a full BMW Service History including the important running in service. It was most recently serviced in May, 2023 with BMW Milton Keynes and has BMW extended warranty in place until May, 2024. It has also had paint protection film applied to the front-end and impact zones.
The short wheelbase, classic BMW rear-wheel drive, 50/50 weight distribution and a 6-speed manual gearbox ensures all the right ingredients are included. The 1M offers a raw and analogue experience and in a world where cars are becoming larger, more restricted and adopting more autonomous characteristics, it comes as no surprise to see these fantastic little cars becoming so sought-after.
