    BMW 1M Tribute video from Italy which displays some hoonage

    Here is a video created in Italy as a tribute to the BMW 1M. The 1M is a very special and rare car in Italy first of all being expensive and secondly with only 80 examples (having ceased production) making it to Italian soil. Drifter Mattia Santino Merli decided to display some hoonage (a term denoting aggressively flogging a car for fun) in the video below. Before anyone asks, much of the footage comes from the closed off Monza circuit and not public streets, as it should be.

    I still can not believe BMW will stop making this car, since it is still in huge demand.
    It is getting more popular over time as people see what a good cat the 1M really is.
    And not to forget, for BMW it is easy money...

    I've been looking around for another car as I tend to get itchy feet after 12 months, but there isn't anything in a similar price range that offers as much as the 1M. Why did you sell?

    Let's just say I had to protect myself from being in debt for a long time.

    I can talk more about it after everything is over.

    I did not sell the car.

    I'm based in Australia, but I've seen a few pop up second hand in the US already. If you really want one you'll find one Click here to enlarge

    He started out at $110,000.00...lol!

    65k isn't that bad with the mods he has. I think the yellow kills it though. The reason some people are willing to pay over msrp for a used one is because of it's rarity. I don't think too many people want a molested one though. The market will adjust the price accordingly.
