BMW announces prices for new 1-series derivative and special 130i
15 February 2007

BMW has just confirmed prices for its three-door 1-series hatchback, which goes on sale in the UK this April.

To mark the UK launch of the car, it's also offering the car's first buyers a special edition of the range-topping 130i M-Sport with special paintwork, special leather upholstery an 18in alloy wheels.

If you've got a three-door One on your shopping list, the cheapest they get is £17,785. That buys you a standard, petrol-powered 118i. A 120i will set you back £18,815, while a six-pot 130i M Sport will cost you £26,355.

Opt for the 'Limited Edition' 130i M Sport, of which only 160 will be produced, and you'll get metallic Carbon Black paint, a lemon leather interior and World Touring Car-style 18-inch alloy wheels.

Chrome window surrounds and a bespoke start/stop button also come with the car – but it's all at a price. You'll have to part with £30,270 if you want to put one of these special baby BMWs on your driveway.
