BMW 1M - Playboy Car of the Year?

The BMW 1 series M coupe has landed on the Playboy car of the year list for 2012. There is steep competition from Lamborghini, MB and other but is also laughably stacked up next to the Fiat 500 and Lexus CT. What is your pic for Playboy Car of the Year 2012?



The car biz is hammering forward, and fun driving is still PC. PLAYBOY has piloted everything new on four wheels. Here are our picks for 2012.
  • Lamborghini Aventador
  • Fiat 500
  • Range Rover Evoque
  • Lexus CT 200H
  • BMW 1 Series M
  • Bentley Continental GTC
  • Ford Mustang Boss 302
  • Audi A7
  • Mercedes-Benz CLs63 AMG
  • Hyundai Veloster
  • Jaguar XKR-S

I'm not a huge fan of recent Benzes, but the new CLS is absolutely stunning. That would be my choice for sure.

The 1M is/was a highly sought after car. It has earned the accolades.

Pretty funny, considering the 3-series was the "chick car" for decades, before there was a 1-series.

IMO, the 1-series is the best car BMW makes today. I would have loved to have gotten my hands on a 1-M.

I'd have to delete anything you can't get with a manual transmission. That's just me. I suspect that leaves me (maybe) with the 1-er and the Mustang.

I'd put an Aston, with a manual, on the list (in place of the Jag). I'd put a Z4M on the list. Everything else that interests me is out of production.

The Veloster and Fiat both have a manual option. Surprisingly, the manual Fiat isn't that bad of a daily. No idea on the Veloster, but I've only heard good things. But the Boss and 1M blow both out of the water (of course). The Veloster and Fiat shouldn't be on the Playboy list...maybe the Equus and the Alfa 8C Competizione (Fiat Group owns Alfa, so it counts). Now THAT'S a sexy car
