Cool 1M Spotted at Schipol Airport in Netherlands

1M Spotted at Schipol Airport in Netherlands

Here's yet another sighting of the 1M coupe, this time at the Schipol Airport (KLM Cargo area). Schipol airport appears to be a great place for BMW prototype/pre-production sightings, as an M5 test mule was just recently spotted there. This particular model has the orange headlight reflectors, which indicates that it's headed for the U.S.

Although we have now seen tons of photos of the 1M coupe in Valencia Orange, additional pics of this color in different lightings and conditions are nevertheless helpful as Valencia Orange has been a difficult color to photograph and describe. Its extremely metallic look and hue take on different looks, in photographs and in-person.

agree the color is very hard to read from photos - that's why I only believe the cover pic of top gear, which says it is amazing

probably quebec, since it seems their dealers are accepting peoples' orders ahead of other canadian dealers.

Ha! They're in such a hurry, they're flying them over

Production hasn't started yet. All the ones out there are for publicity/press/auto shows

Strange, looks like the one from Detroit. Also the painting looks as bad, as the people described it. Is this one heading towards the US or was shipped from the US?
