BMW has just unveiled some new special edition 1-Series cars, both in convertible and coupe guise. Called Exclusive and Sport Editions, BMW is expanding the 1-Series lineup and could be a harbinger of things to come: like an all-new 1-Series coupe and convertible.
The Munich-based brand has a habit of producing special edition versions of a certain model, many of which have signified the end of a specific generation of cars. Considering that the 1-Series coupe and convertible have been with us since 2008, it is safe to assume that the same message is being portrayed here.
The Edition Exclusive 1-Series, for both the coupe and convertible, consists of a series of aesthetic upgrades such as a chrome grille, chrome exhaust tips and window frames, all complemented by a unique grey metallic paint. Buyers do have a choice of up to five standard colors. The same aesthetic changes occur on the insides with two-tone leather and stitching, aluminum interior trim, a unique anthracite headliner, chrome trimmed steering wheel, handbrake and special sill plates.
The Edition Sport 1-Series, also available on both 1-Series variants, includes BMW M’s Sports tuned suspension, special BMW M rims, an updated and more aggressive sports body kit and much more.
Both Sport and Exclusive Editions are available with virtually any 1-Series configuration. Deliveries are expected to begin in March with pricing to be announced closer to that date.
