BMW has unveiled a new limited-edition model of the 1-Series coupe for the Japanese market. The model will carry a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine making 170-hp mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The limited edition model, of which only 30 examples will be built, runs from 0-62 mph in 8.4 seconds.
Yes, we know that doesn’t sound very exciting but BMW is adding its Performance Unlimited package to it, which gives this fuel-sipping 1-Series some nice aesthetic upgrades. The package adds a black grille, special 18-inch alloy wheels, aluminum pedals, a carbon fiber spoiler and a special badge inside the cabin.
Don’t be upset – it’s not like it’s a special edition 1-Series M Coupe or anything. For you four-banger lovers, BMW has already confirmed a 4-cylinder 1-Series for the U.S. – so be patient.
