BMW 1M for Sale

 When the BMW 1-Series M Coupe launched in 2011 it never got the M1 badge that many expected. Thanks to the 1978 BMW M1 supercar, the M1 title was retired, not unlike Michael Jordan’s Number 23 at the Chicago Bulls, to pay homage to the legendary mid engine supercar that catapulted BMW into supercar royalty.

1st second imageThe BMW 1M was one of the first M cars to utilise forced induction, a decision that left BMW purists divided. Despite its mixed reviews, the 3.0L Twin Turbo Inline Six is an absolute gem with more accessible torque and power than the E90 M3 and only a fraction slower to 100km/h (4.6sec vs. 4.9sec).

3rdWith an RRP of $99,990 in 2011, the 1-Series M Coupe seemed like a lot for what is BMW’s smallest car. Perhaps the biggest mistake that BMW made when launching the 1M was that they made it a little too good and were forced to detune the engine so they wouldn’t show up the E90 M3. With a simple ECU tune the 3.0L Twin Turbo Inline Six will decimate the naturally aspirated E90 M3 in a straight line and match it through the bends.

4th 5thA limited production run, gorgeous silhouette and an astonishing power plant means that clean examples of the 1M are fetching close to their original RRP of $99,990. Following the initial depreciation, we expect their value will only increase over the next decade as the 1M cements its status as a future classic.
