BMW Australia has unveiled that the 2019 BMW M140i hot hatch will get its final spec this year with the release of the Finale Edition.

Priced at $62,990, the BMW M140i Finale Edition will add several aesthetic details and equipment upgrades to the car.

Features include 18-inch M alloy wheels in Orbit Grey, special edition badging, electric glass sunroof, wireless charging for smartphones, a high-gloss black kidney grille, darkened head and tail lights and black chrome exhaust pipes.

Engine power outputs remain unchanged from the standard spec M140i. The muscular turbocharged B58 straight-six motor still produces 250kW/500Nm and gives impressive acceleration from 0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds. Owners will be greeted with a rorty straight-six note exhaust which is peppered with pops and burbles in Sport mode.

The Finale Edition aesthetic changes will go on top of the already standard features such as M Sport brakes, adaptive LED headlights, awesome sounding Harmon Kardon sound system, adaptive M suspension and an 8.8-inch display with GPS navigation and the latest iDrive.

BMW Group Australia CEO Vikram Pawah says the Finale Edition marks the last time the 1 Series will be seen as a rear-drive, six-cylinder hot hatch.

“To celebrate the last six-cylinder, rear-wheel drive 1 Series hot hatch, we are excited to present customers with the BMW M140i Finale Edition,” says Pawah.

“Through aesthetic exterior details and key equipment highlights, the M140i Finale Edition builds on the virtues that have made the M140i our best-selling M Performance vehicle.

“It offers convenience and practicality with a distinctive sporting silhouette and outstanding performance,” he said.

The Finale Edition will be available in Aussie showrooms from March.
