Evaluation: Original | One-owner car. One of 740 1Ms sold in this country,
finished in arguably the best color, and showing just 6700 miles. Looks new.
Bottom Line: The 1M has all the ingredients of a future collectible: powerful engine, manual gearbox, compact size, and a short, limited production run. They started at $47,000 when new, and quite a few have sold on Bring a Trailer over the past couple of years for around that number. This one, though, crossed a live-auction block in a room full of deep-pocketed BMW fans who were more than willing to bid ahead of the curve and past Gooding’s high estimate.
