Not every BMW M car goes on to be as sought-after as the 1M. As with most cars, depreciation sets in as cars get older and newer models are launched. As the 1M was based on an entry-level model, BMW decided that it made financial sense to borrow some bits from other models, in order to keep costs sensible and to ensure the accountants stayed happy. Therefore, the 1M was seen as somewhat as a ‘parts bin special.’ M car aficionados braced themselves, but they needn’t have worried. That’s because the car borrowed some bits from the E92 M3, which included rear suspension, differential and brakes . The engine however came from a Z4 and included a 3.0-liter inline twin turbo 6-cylinder paired with a 6 speed manual transmission. Once placed in the 1 Series M Coupe’s flared arched body, complemented by sought-after BMW rear-wheel drive and perfect 50/50 weight distribution, it looked the part and performed the part. Maybe only the E30 M3 might have a better feeling behind the wheel. 

This 2011 BMW 1M coupe is finished in Alpine White over a black leather interior with factory-installed features include xenon headlights, rear parking sensors, heated front seats, a Harman/Kardon stereo, Comfort Access proximity entry, and navigation.

The twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 inline-six is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. The N54 was rated at 335 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 370 lb-ft of torque at 1,500 rpm when new. The most recent service was completed in April 2020 and included an oil and filter change as well as replacement of the charge pipe from the intercooler to the throttle body.

The Seller is the original owner and is a BMW CCA member and club racer.  This car might also be the last 1M imported to the US, vin 47682, as a special favor to the Seller from BMW.  It has never been in an accident and has a clear bra and tinted windows installed with black powder coated wheels.
