This morning in Detroit, BMW took off the veil of the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe. Pricing is set to be announced shortly and we will have to keep our lips tight for a little longer, but overall, an attractive base price that makes the 1M a quite interesting buy.

Valencia Orange paint actually looks great in person, a more vibrant and lively color than seen on the official press photos. Our heart still goes to the Alpina White, but one should not discard the unique and exclusive Orange.

First deliveries will begin on May 16th and production will be limited. While not officially confirmed, we have heard that the US market might receive just a few hundred production slots. More on this later.
