Once in a while we come across some unique BMW 1M models and this one shown below makes no exception. Featuring a striking, yet not obnoxious yellow color that showcases beautifully all the design lines and aggressiveness of the 1M.
Judging by these photos, the 1M seems to have received a full paint job rather than vinyl wraps we have seen in the past.
BMW offered the 1M in three colors: Valencia Orange Metallic, Alpine White and Sapphire Black Metallic. The two metallic colors were an additional $550 to the base price.
The “baby-M” went on sale in 2011 and was sold out before it even reached out the local dealerships. Listed at $47,030, the 1M sold either for sticker price or significantly higher, reports at the time mentioned some dealers charging a premium of $10,000. There were 740 units sold in the United States with some of those units being reported totaled after unfortunate accidents.
