10 surprising new cars for 2011
This one's nearly sold out. Only about 1,000 of these stubby, twin-turbocharged BMWs will make it into the United States, many for several thousand over list price. What's the point?
Well, it's an M, which means it makes a ton of power and puts it to the ground very quickly. It handles like a slot car. It's lighter and has more low-end torque than the mighty BMW M3. It's orange, and 2011 is the first and final model year. All of that makes the 1M an instant collector's car.
