BMW has announced a special edition of the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible will debut in Detroit.
Among BMW's offerings for the 2013 NAIAS will be the Limited Edition Lifestyle of the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible. This new package will be available on most engine variants, adding more equipment and styling details.
Customers will be able to order the car in one of the following colors: Mineral White metallic (exclusive), Space Grey metallic and Sapphire Black metallic. It comes with 18-inch alloys, chrome line window recess finishers, white decorative trim on the double kidney grille, along with a brown soft-top with silver pigmentation for the Convertible.
Inside there's a brown leather trim with white contrasting stitching for the door panel, seats and steering wheel. There are also floor mats with color-coordinated piping, an anthracite roof liner and wood strips.
BMW's NAIAS lineup will include the 4-Series Coupe Concept, M6 GranCoupe and the 2014 Z4, along with ActiveHybrid models.
Agile handling, exclusive equipment features and an elegantly sporty design have secured the status of the BMW 1 Series Coupe and BMW 1 Series Convertible as passports to an elevated level of driving pleasure in the premium compact segment. The new Limited Edition Lifestyle equipment package shines the spotlight even more brightly on the aesthetic qualities of these dynamic two-door cars and underlines their special position in the marketplace. The package
includes a carefully composed selection of exclusive, high-quality equipment details, which add further interest to the outside and inside of the BMW 1 Series Coupe and BMW 1 Series Convertible and enhance their appeal and distinctive allure. Added to which, it can also be combined with the BMW M Sport package.
The BMW 1 Series Coupe and BMW 1 Series Convertible are at their most aesthetically pleasing in the exclusive exterior paint colour Mineral White metallic, although Sapphire Black metallic and Space Grey metallic are also available as alternatives. Whichever shade customers opt for, the BMW kidney grille will greet them with white decorative trim
and white kidney grille bars with chromed fronts. This elegant appearance is underlined by Chrome Line window recess finishers and side window surrounds. Classy 18-inch light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design and with a Ferric Grey paint finish also catch the eye.
The exhaust tailpipe embellishers in matt chrome or black chrome (BMW 135i and BMW 123d) add further flourishes, while the Lifestyle Edition version of the BMW 1 Series Convertible achieves a particularly successful contrasting effect; its brown soft-top with silver pigmentation generates fascinating light effects. Leather trim in Tobacco brown adorned with white contrast stitching dominates the interior of the Lifestyle Edition, and a brown sports leather steering wheel continues the theme. If the M Sport package is specified, the Coupe and Convertible will be kitted out with an M leather steering wheel in black. Adding the finishing touches to the high-end interior ambience are door sill finishers bearing “BMW Limited Edition” lettering, Fineline Stream exquisite wood trim strips, an anthracite-coloured roof liner and floor mats with colour-coordinated piping.
