Dealer Wants $965,000 For Rare 1981 BMW M1 In Original Polaris Silver Paint

BMW only built three M1 supercars in the Polaris Silver paint as a special request, and one of them has recently surfaced for sale.

Carrying the VIN 4301424, the car was delivered new in France in March 1981. Of the other two BMW M1s painted Polaris Silver, one was the first prototype car and the other was built especially for Bernie Ecclestone, which means this is most likely the only chance to get a BMW M1 with an original Polaris Silver paint.

But there’s more: the car has only covered 17,500 km from new (10,874 miles) and is in a stunning condition, with a beautiful original interior. The seller, Mint Classics GmbH from Münster (Germany), says it’s “probably the most special BMW M1 street car on the market today.” The photos certainly support the statement, as the car looks almost like it has never been driven.

Now we’ve arrived at the most painful part, the asking price. Mint Classics wants $965,000 for the rare BMW supercar, which makes it the most expensive M1 we’ve ever heard of.
