6,331 / 3 = 2,110. So, based on that 'guesstimate' quasi the same goes for the 1:1 VO model.

In August 2011 Brian Watts (Head of Marketing & Sales for BMW M worldwide) confirmed the following in an interview with BimmerFile:
"We kept the colors pretty much limited. We did, you know, black, white and Valencia Orange. And pretty much that's how they've sold: a third, a third, a third."
