Low production numbers and exclusivity don’t determine what is iconic.
That's also my opinion.
You can differentiate between value and numbers but that says nothing about the historical status. Look at 3.0 CS(L) or 2002. Every true Bimmer fan is excited when seeing them because they are iconic. The only difference to the M1 is they were cheaper. I guess the M2 Competition will also get that status. Also because it belongs most likely to one of the last (pure) gasoline Bimmer generations. And because it's a stunning beauty!
