BMW have just released pictures following on from a video released yesterday. The official images show this is the hottest BMW 1-Series yet. BMW latest makeover for the 1 series M Coupe gives it an aggressive stance on the road and singles it out from the rest of the coupe models in the range. The new modifications include larger cooling air intakes situated in the front bumper, bulging wheelarches, wing mirrors taken from the BMW M3 and to finish of the new 1 series M Coupe, BMW have fitted four exhaust pipes that exit next to large rear diffuser in pairs.
BMW have fitted the M Coupe with a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged in line six cylinder engine that boasts 335bhp and 500Nm of torque available under full throttle. BMW engineers have opted for a simple six-speed manual gearbox to be fitted to all 1 series M Coupe. The performance of the 3.0 litre engine is quite staggering for such a small car with a 0-62mph time coming in at 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 155mph which is electronically limited, the performance is very close to Audis RS3 which was recently announced. But BMW are confident that the new 1 series M Coupe will lap the Nurburgring faster than a previous generation E46 M3, they put this down to its low 1495kg kerbweight.
The BMW M-Dynamic Mode offers a flexible engine set up where you can switch between relaxed, torque-oriented or tuned for maximum power at the touch of a button. BMW Efficient Dynamics tweaks result in fuel economy figures of 29.4mpg and 224g/km of Co2 emissions. The BMW 1 Series M Coupe will feature 19-inch alloy wheels, Cruise Control, air conditioning, leather and alcantara trim, M badges and orange stitching inside the cabin, Prices start at £39,990.
