The BMW 1M was and is not only an exceptional car which graduated magna cum laude from Garching, but also one of the most rare automobiles in the world. 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.
The standard color pallet was just as limited with Valencia Orange, Alpine White and Black Sapphire being offered, and no option for an Individual Program. Unless you’re highly connected within BMW ranks and you can pull off a one-off Java Green 1M.
Until today, the 1M world, which includes our own Valencia Orange 1 Series M Coupe, haven’t had the chance to see other special paint jobs given to the “baby-M”, but it turns out that there is one more special 1M, which is part of the last four special 1Ms ever built.
Painted in Monte Carlo Blue, this BMW 1M was produced by the Individual department in Munich – as validated by the factory identification plate – and according to sources, it belonged to a BMW employee. The car has 90,000 kilometers on the odometer and it’s now listed for sale at 69,900 euros.
If you’re ready to own a piece of BMW’s history and a great and exclusive M car, then this might be one of your last shots.
