It seems that a small 1 Series with 340 horsepower under the bonnet and a rear-wheel drive system is quite difficult to control as today we saw the third incident where the smallest M ever created by BMW performance division has been involved. The new BMW 1 Series M Coupe is also offered in a limited edition of around 1,000 units while its production is scheduled to end later this year, most probably in December. Therefore, we got all the reasons to feel bad for each vehicle which ends up in the railings.
The first accident with the new 1M Coupe has been reported in mid-July when a South Korean customer managed to crash his brand new vehicle after another vehicle did not respected the semaphore’s red color.
He also said that around 80 unit of the new BMW M model arrived in South Korea while he was the first to get the German model but also first to crash it. The second incident with the BMW 1 Series M Coupe has been reported few days ago in Poland when the driver lost the car’s control and left the tarmac.
The driver went off the road into the field causing some minor damage to the vehicle. As it can be seen from the photos, the wheels seem to be affected the most while a new paint job could be the second thing to consider.
Finally, the third incident happened somewhere in Switzerland where a 25-year-old driver lost control of his BMW 1 Series M Coupe due to the wet tarmac, seriously crashing the vehicle. According to the first details, the car jumped over a hill and stopped in 70 meters.
Fortunately, the driver escaped unharmed while the passenger suffered from minor injuries. It seems that the last two incidents with the German model were caused by the wet road which means that driving the 1M Coupe could be quite challenging for inexperienced drivers.
