Powerbeast's 1M coupe is no stranger to attention, having been featured as one of our BMWs of the month recently. But, it's about to get as much attention as an 1M coupe can, having donned a Dakar Yellow coat as its newest wardrobe choice.

Dakar Yellow was last offered by BMW as a standard color for the Z3 M roadster/coupe but we still see it from time to time on late model BMWs from enthusiasts looking to give their cars a unique color, either by ordering it via BMW Individual or painting/wrapping in the aftermarket. HERE are some examples - mostly M3s.

Now for the details. Here's the official specs/modifications list for Powerbeast's 1M:

2011 BMW 1M
  • Dakar Yellow
  • BMW Performance Seats
  • BMW Performance Steering Wheel
  • BMW Performance Pedals
  • BMW Performance Shifter
  • BMW Performance CF Trunk Lip
  • GIAC Tune
  • Akrapović Evolution
  • Akrapović Catless DPs
  • Akrapović WIreless Kit
  • SLēK CF Lip
  • SLēK CF Diffuser
  • SLēK CF SIde Valances
  • SLēK CF Side Skirts
  • Carbon Fiber Roof
  • BBS FI Wheels
  • Michelin PSS Tires
  • Brembo Brakes
  • KW V3 Coilovers
  • LUX Angel Eyes
  • Black Kidney Grilles
  • Carbon Fiber Antenna
  • Tow Ring

This. By the way, that car has Michelin PSS as well, could be added to that seemingly infinite list of mods.

LOOKS AMAZING!! Great work!

+1 on interior shots though. I was under the impression we were going to see yellow stitching but I definitely see orange next to that Akra button. And the seats look like the OEM seats, not the BMW performance seats?
