BMW 1 Series M Coupe Remains A Thing Of Beauty

M Performance

And this is a particularly beautiful example.

Wrapped in Gun Powder Metallic grey and sitting on a gorgeous set of V8.2 monoforged alloys by MORR Wheels, this is one of the finest examples of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe we’ve come across. When it was unveiled back in 2010, BMW described the car as a "pure Ultimate Driving Machine." Produced for just a single model year, we’ve been waiting a long time for its replacement, which is set to arrive in the form of the BMW M2 either later this, or early next year.

Often described as the spiritual successor to the original M3 (E30), the 1M Coupe was always destined to become a modern classic, and this stunning model shot by Divio in Johannesburg is testament to that. The 1M coupe comes powered by a twin-turbo straight-six rated at 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed manual. It can shoot from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and the quarter mile in 13.2 seconds.
