Those living in the Land Down Under and loving the exquisite little models from BMW`s 1-Series, should know that the German based carmaker is soon to offer the lovely M140i Performance Edition, with prices to start from AUD 71,900.
Unfortunately, just like any other special edition from BMW, this one will also be a limited-run, with just 15 models issued with the manual transmission and 45 with the automatic.
All available vehicles come with an exclusive M Performance styling package, adding as well the numbered plaque which announces the Performance Edition.
In terms of visuals, the gorgeous BMW M140i Performance Edition comes with plenty of M goodies made from carbon fiber, like gloss black grille, black rear fins, carbon fiber exterior mirrors and roof-mounted spoiler.
The overall exterior design is complemented with the high-performance exhaust system as well as the 19-inch grey lightweight alloy wheels, wearing the same M Performance signature. The mods continue inside.
Speaking about new interior features, the M140i Performance Edition welcomes you with the finest materials – Alcantara, carbon fiber trim, M Performance steering wheel wrapped in carbon fiber and leather stitching, central console wrapped in the same material as well as Alcantara dashboard and cloth sports seats.
Other features also include aluminum pedal covers or carbon fiber gar shift knob, the latter one available in the manual variants.
Those looking for a power boost under the hood, they will be disappointed, as the carmaker decided to leave the car`s engine intact. We are looking still at the stock B58 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder, good for 340 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.
