The 1M coupe should be a delight from the factory, but tuners’ brains are already at work. IND has announced its plans for a 1M coupe build project, based on Jon Sibal’s conceptualized 1M with traditional 3.0 CSL-style paint scheme.
Roger Lighterness has comeup with a fantasty car through the magic of photoshop. An Alpina modified BMW 1-Series M Coupe. Merry Christmas!
There will be no 1M convertible for this generation 1M, but a cabrio model was initially under consideration by BMW. 1addicts member Acerbus has rendered what the 1M cabrio would possibly have resembled. Quite a looker we must say.
The 1 series M coupe color we have seen throughout BMW’s marketing teasers and the official release info is Valencia Orange. It’s certainly attention grabbing, if not also somewhat polarizing. The other two colors currently offered is Alpine White and Black Sapphire Metallic, which can be seen currently on BMW’s visualizer, as well as these great renders by a Bimmerpost member.
Think the 1M Coupe has Alpine325ci’s attention and interest? He has been prolifically rendering 1M coupes, and the latest (and best) render updates the front view of the 1-series M coupe to include the LCI (facelift) lights which have already been spied and confirmed to be featured on the 1M.
The 1M coupe is said to be coming in only three colors – Valencia Orange, Black, and Alpine White, the latter of which is previewed here by our Alpine325ci. Seen here is a rear rendering which follows the stunning front rendering from a few weeks back.
New BMW 1M info and images have slowed, but Gerald Alvarez’s renditions of the upcoming 1 series M have not. Here is his latest impression of the future BMW hot coupe.
Gerald is exhibiting his artistry once again with this 1M Coupe in Alpine White render. We hear he is working on a black 1M Coupe next. At this rate, we’ll have previews of the 1M Coupe in every color prior to their actual unveils
Alpine325ci is at it again, this time producing an absolutely gorgeous wallpaper render of the upcoming 1M Coupe, set inside a tunnel at high speed. The 1M in the image looks spot on based on all that we’ve seen of the 1M Coupe so far!
Our resident photoshop wizard, Gerald Alvarez, has again produced some great renders to share with the Bimmerpost community. These are of the upcoming1M Coupe – front and rear view. Check out the stunning renders inside!
Autobilds current issue has an exclusive on the 1M Coupe. According to Autobild, the 1M Coupe will feature 340PS, twin turbo N54 engine, 6MT standard (DCT optional). Note: these specs have NOT been officially confirmed!

Jon Sibal pens the upcoming M1 / 1M convertible, which has been said to be in the works and will debut after the coupe version. As with all of Sibal’s work, it’s an impressive and definitely plausible take on what the upcoming M1 / 1M convertible will resemble.
Alpine325ci has done it again. This time he imagines the M1 / 1M rear view based on a recent spy photo and some clues from BMW insider Scott26. This render incorporates one of the most striking details previously hinted at — the X6M-like vents and ducts in the rear bumper. Check out the beautiful render inside.
Jon Sibal has again produced a stunning rendering of an upcoming BMW, this time the BMW M1 coupe. The M1 elements seen on this car (aggressive front bumper, hood bulge, side vent and skirts, flared fenders) look possible from spy photos and has been confirmed to be very close to the real thing by BMW insider.
Resident photoshop guru Gerald Alvarez has almost hit the BMW M1 design on the head with his latest beautiful render. So close in fact that BMW insider Scott26 thought that he was looking at official pictures when spotted Gerald’s latest M1 impression!
We just posted the latest BMW M1 / 1M spyshots yesterday, but Gerald Alvarez has already been hard at work photochopping the car based on the latest hints from the spy photos. He’s even added the M styling cues that are so far missing from the test mule.
Certainly BMW shows this car off soon, until then the photoshoppers will fill the void and give us wonderful takes on what the car could look like. Here is one based on the few leaked details we know about this car thus far.
