Pocket Rocket are to pleased to offer for sale a hand selected 2011 BMW 1M Coupe.
This 2011 BMW 1M Coupe is an undisputed performance icon, and a highly collectable modern classic. Its 3.0-litre twin-turbo N54 straight-six engine produces 335bhp, which is driven through the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. This is one of only 450 examples of the 1M Coupe that were originally supplied to the UK. A cherished car that has been used as intended, the odometer now shows 49,111 miles from new.
Factory records show the car was completed in May 2011, after which it was delivered new to the UK and first registered on 13 June 2011. Four previous registered keepers are recorded on the log book. The last vendor having owned the car for the last two-and-a-half years, and enjoyed around 17,000 miles behind the wheel.
Finished in eye-popping Valencia Orange paint, which was the launch colour for the car, the bodywork is in great shape.
The car sits on the correct 19-inch Y-spoke silver alloy wheels, which have been refurbished and are in genuinely pristine condition. The bright orange paintwork is complemented by the high-gloss Shadow Line exterior trim around the window and wing mirror surrounds.
In the cabin, the seats are trimmed in black Boston leather accented by Kyalami Orange stitching. The headlining, dashboard, door panels, instrument binnacle, handbrake and gear lever gaiters are all finished in anthracite Alcantara. Its steering wheel has also been upgraded to an M Performance item, fully trimmed in Alcantara and orange stitching to match.
Driver and front passenger benefit from heated seats, additional fitted equipment includes climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and xenon headlights. The BMW Professional media system features satellite navigation and a DAB digital radio tuner.
The last scheduled maintenance was in Dec 2019 at 49,111 miles, carried out by BMW Synter Midlands. All previous scheduled maintenance has been performed by BMW main dealers.
Its last MOT test was on 18 December 2019 at 49,111 miles, which resulted in a pass with the only advisory noting that undertrays were fitted. In fact, other than MOT testers recording the presence of factory covers and underside panels, the car has never received a single advisory.
The alloy wheels are fitted with a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, in sizes 245/35 ZR19 at the front and 265/35 ZR19 at the rear. The rears are date-coded to 2017, while the fronts were manufactured in 2018. All four were put on as a brand-new set in May 2018 at 45,994 miles.
Accompanying the car is the original literature including the owner’s handbook, stamped maintenance record and numerous old invoices.
