The BMW 1M as its commonly known,used the suspension and brakes from its big brother M3, as well as using a mechanically locking limited-slip differential. All of this combined with the famous N54 turbo charged straight six engine in the small 1 series coupe body, made this car quickly raise to the top of the best drivers cars ever.The 1M’s twin-turbo straight-six is a stonker.Although almost utilitarian in the way it delivers its huge punch,it still manages to have that classic BMW note –gritty yet aristocratic.It is hard to comprehend just how fast the pint-sized 1M is until you experience it,but at times it is almost unsettling, due to the 1M’s abundance of low and mid-range torque, which properly shoves this little coupe down the road. An overboost function provides an extra 37lb ft for short bursts, peak torque climbing to 369lb ft. That’s serious grunt, especially in something this size.
The 1M’s short wheelbase and lack of roll mean that it can feel quite a snappy car over the limit. Fifty-fifty weight distribution and the M diff allow for hugely entertaining moments with the traction control switched off, but you do need to be quick with your reactions. Unquestionably a drivers car, entertaining, fun and a handful to test the nerves, when you feel the need.

A truly magnificent example in every way and with condition, rarity and low mileage making this a superb addition to any collection, or investment opportunity, if the unprecedented increase in values over the last few years are anything to go by.
