At the risk of BimmerFile becoming nothing but 1M news we bring you yet more about the new baby M. Our friends at look to have found the elusive Sapphire Black 1M while at BMW NA headquarters in New Jersey. Shod with the typical test mule black wheels it ‘s the meanest looking 1 Series we ‘ve ever seen. However don ‘t get too used to it. The black competition package wheels are purely there to make the car more low-key as it ‘s technically a test mule. They will not be offered for sale.

The $47,030 1M will launch on May 16th and we ‘ll be testing it shortly before that date. For full 1M coverage (including pricing and dealer allocation) head over to the BimmerFile 1M section.
