With the help of BMW Individual, the owner was able to customize one of the most sought BMWs in the past years, turning the Java Green 1M into an original among the other few thousands 1Ms ever built.
The customization, as we mentioned above, starts with the Java Green paint job, accentuated by racing black stripes on the hood, blacked out kidney grilles, dark chrome tailpipes and M3 GTS-like wheels.
The owner told Bimmertoday that the flashy 1 Series M Coupe carries the production number 6328 out of 6331 units sold worldwide. The last four copies of the 340-hp compact M were provided with a special paint and body work in contrast to all previously-built 1Ms.
The Java Green paint costs 4,300 euros, the GTS wheels an extra 1,200 and the other chrome dark parts set the owner back another 3,600 euros.
In the U.S., as far as we know, all the 740 units sold were painted in either Valencia Orange, Alpine White or Black Sapphire colors.
