Description

Owned from new by Rock legend Jay Kay. 5,500 miles from new under his single ownershipOrdered in the desirable combination of Alpine White with a black Boston leather interior and the media packageSupplied with its original Bill of Sale and service records with fivestamps in the book byBMW SytnerFirst time offered for sale. Oneof the 450 specially made 1-Series Coupes. Rock star provenance and sensibly guidedBMW's1M was the first of the new generation of 'M' cars to use turbo-charging, and with more torque than the V8-powered M3, the 335 bhp six-cylinder, 3-litre, twin-turbo power unit generateslinearthrust whatever the revs, taking just 4.9 seconds from 0-62mph and producing a magnificent howl in the process. With 50/50 weight distribution and that intuitive M-Power diff, the car is eminently 'chuckable' and is the complete driving enthusiasts dream.This amazing,UK-supplied, right-hand drive 1M has been owned since new by Rock legend Jay Kay and has only covered 5,500 miles in that time. Finished in the classic combination of Alpine White with a Black Boston Leather interior, the original Bill of Sale included in the cars history file disclosesthat this focussed little machinewas also specified with the Media Package. The car was initially supplied bySytner High Wycombe, who have continued to service it from new with fivestamps in the accompanying service book, themost recent of which was on 04/10/2019.Being one of only 450UK cars available,the 1M is already a tantalising proposition for any BMW enthusiast, however,this lovely example,with its single ownership, low mileage and rock star provenance, could prove irresistible.
