Valencia Orange BMW 1M

I had the pleasure of shooting this gorgeous BMW 1M—one of 332 made in Valencia Orange for the North American market—for one of IND’s clients from the east coast. Although that might deter most from modding, such a potent platform was too hard to resist and accordingly, this example was outfitted with Stoptech brakes, a RKP Clubsport wing, Revosport carbon fiber hood and rear diffuser, and much more.

There aren’t too many aero companies that pay much attention to the 1M it seems, but Revosport has definitely done the platform justice. If I had a 1M in my garage, this hood would be an absolute must.

Usually I’m a big proponent in ditching the OEM wheels and suspension without question, but the E9X/1M ZCP wheels that come standard just work so well here. OEM plus achieved!

The front lip exercises a bit of cosmetic restraint, whereas the rear is all exuberance—aggressive diffuser strakes match well with the RKP rear wing. Business in the front…party in the back.

Those hips! It was a pleasure to get my camera on one of these—both the car and the color photograph so well. Anyone else have a 1M I could shoot during the fall season? Shoot me an e-mail if you’re interested!
