The 1 Series is an enthusiasts car.

Being a 2-door, very compact, very edgy (trying to be kind here) design it's not a downmarket car so much as it's a souped-up Mini. I think the combination of impracticality and fugly design turns off a lot of buyers, but those who buy the big engine likely find it exhilarating.
