A rare Dakar Yellow BMW 1M popped up on Autotrader.com. The car has been featured on here in the past and it has been one of the most polarizing 1Ms in the U.S., mostly thanks to its color, but also cause it showcases a long list of aftermarket parts.

According to the ad, the car has 18,000 miles on the odometer and comes with a black carbon fiber roof as well. It has heated seats, navigation system, premium sound system, parking sensors and a performance steering wheel. The asking price is $59,000 (MSRP $47,030) and the car is said to have a clean record.

The private seller is located in Boca Raton, Florida.

The BMW 1M remains a head turner and a rarity on the road. Even before it launched in 2011, BMW 1M was sold out at most dealerships across the country. And in places where units were still available, outrageous MSPRs were being thrown around, north of $10,000 over the normal price in some cases. Then it launched and the car lived up to its hype, lots of hype we might add, fueled by a genius marketing campaign in Europe and North America.

BMW was originally going to release the 1M as a limited production model of 2,700 units. Then due to overwhelming demand, the company lifted the cap and produced a total of 6309 cars until production ended in June 2012. Nevertheless, production of the 1M Coup stopped in June 2012, with 740 units sold in the US and a further 220 sold in Canada. Total 6309 cars sold worldwide.

Without a doubt, the 1M will go down in the BMW history as one of the greatest models ever built, and also with certainty it will end up on a list of very rare vehicles twenty years from now.

    Collectable cars do not have “mods”.

      True. This one has a bit too much. Mine has an Eisenmann exhaust system and a carbon fiber splitter, but I can easily remove the latter one. Would always keep the Eisenmann system, sounds so much better.

    Yet another car with black wheels… Meh.

  3. Mike Vella says:

    Saw a red one in La Jolla last weekend. That was the first time I’ve ever seen one in person. This shade is my favorite, though.

  4. TRADEMEEE FROM BOCA ALSO says:

    Make a trade??? your car for a WRX ??? maybe I’m lucky (;

  5. Michael Cohen says:

    For the most part the cosmetic stuff is tasteful though I don’t care for the side bits. Hard to argue with the Brembos or coilovers. If somebody wants this for a driver’s car it’s a value.
