This car is the last of the BMW 1-Series who received rear-wheel drive and a 6-cylinder engine. The new version of the German hatchback will appear at the end of this year.

The time is coming when the 1st generation of the Bavarian subcompact BMW 1-Series hatchback will cease to exist. The guys from BMW decided to abandon the rear-wheel drive and 6-cylinder engine. To adequately mark the end of the road to what is a unique offer in this segment, the Australian division of the company releases a powerful modification of the M140i in the Finale Edition. A special version of the “hot” hatchback will be supplied exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

In an interview with GoAuto, BMW Australia through its Chief Executive Officer, Vikram Pawah, confirmed that the limited edition version will be the most recent for the BMW 1-Series of this generation.

The exclusive edition of Finale Edition costs 62,990 dollars or 4,140,017 rubles and boasts a large number of external changes. Buyers get things like black chrome exhaust pipes, a darkened false radiator grille and one of the three available options for 18-inch alloy wheels. In standard equipment, the car’s equipment list includes wireless charging, LED headlights, sunroof, adaptive suspension M, keyless entry and start, and M Sport brakes with blue calipers. BMW also adds all this with leather upholstery, an 8.8-inch screen infotainment system, a Harman Kardon audio system, and front and rear parking sensors.

BMW M140i Finale Edition received a 3-liter turbocharged engine with a capacity of 335 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes 4.6 seconds, and the maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h.
