2011 BMW E82 1M Coupe For Sale

Registration date: 2011
Mileage: 6370
Transmission type: Manual
Vehicle colour: Valencia orange
Interior: Black leather / orange stitching

The 1M coupe became a cult classic almost upon its launch – a rare example of a new car moving, arguably, straight to classic status without passing GO. Rabidly quick and styled in such a way as to leave even the casual observer in no doubt as to the car’s potential, the 1 series M coupe (to give it the correct name) was an immediate hit with critics and buyers alike, earning Car of the Year accolades from magazines such as Evo and Top Gear. Reviewed by Clarkson on the Top Gear TV show (who claimed it was ‘a brilliant, brilliant, brilliant car – the end’), it sold out within a week of broadcast, with all 450 units accounted for before they arrived in the showrooms. Despite being one of the first in a new generation of turbo powered M cars, it has been almost unanimously agreed to be worthy of its position in the M car hall of fame, alongside greats like the M3 CSL and the E28 M5. Within a remarkably short period of time, second hand values had exceeded the price when new, and have continued to rise ever since.

Sold with a manual only gearbox ‘option’, and producing around 340bhp with peak torque of 369 lb ft - all pushed through the superlative M limited slip differential, the 1M coupe is not for the feint hearted. This of course means that many examples have had a reasonably tough life, being driven, lets be honest, as their maker intended. But there are a few of the 450 destined for collector status, and this is one of them. Actually, it is the one. The condition of this car has to be seen to be believed. The first owner had a friend at Recaro, and they custom made him a one-off set of racing seats, complete with orange stitching and M Performance badging. There are also a couple of other individual modifications such as colour keyed centre console and engine covers. All the original parts, including the factory fitted seats, are available, should the new custodian wish to return the car to factory original spec. This 1M coupe has genuinely never been out in the rain – you can see from the condition of the underside, which is almost exactly as it left the factory. Our technical team - who have seen a tidy car or two – were utterly blown away by the condition of this car when they carried out our usual inspection. There was literally nothing to report.

So, there are 1M coupes, and there is this utterly exceptional 1M coupe. Whether it’s a long-term collector car you’re looking for, or a daily driver that looks and feels like a brand new car, look no further.
