BMW 1 series M coupe exterior, interior.
The new BMW 1-Series M Coupe features a high-strength steel unibody, with unique, widened fenders and rear quarter panels to house the substantially widened track. It also features a metal roof panel which saves about 35 lbs (15kg) compared to BMW 1-Series models equipped with a moonroof. The 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe, constructed as one of BMW's most performance-oriented vehicles in recent years, will not be offered with a moonroof. This weight savings - at the tallest point of the vehicle - provides a corresponding drop in the center of gravity, which contributes to improved driving dynamics. It also helps maximize head room (or helmet room, as the case may be).

New BMW 1 Series M Coupe
For the first time, BMW M GmbH has extended its range of high-performance
sports cars and now covers the compact vehicle segment. The new BMW 1
Series M Coupe, which embodies the typical M characteristics in a
particularly concentrated form, will be presented at the 2011 NAIAS. A 250
kW/340 bhp six-cylinder inline engine with M TwinPower turbo, chassis technology derived directly from
the motor racing track, a high power to weight ratio, athletic design with
innovative aerodynamic features and an exclusive interior conceived for
concentrated driving pleasure combine to form a harmonious overall concept,
which paves the way for new target groups to be led to the unmistakable M
Feeling. All of this makes the BMW 1 Series M Coupe a high-performance
sports car, which meets the challenges of the race track just as
comfortably as the demands of everyday driving.

In the Studio with BMW's 1 Series M Coupe | SkiddMark
Last Thursday we spent a few hours up-close-and-personal with BMW's new 1
Series M Coupe, learning about it's design and features whilst trying to
assess its credibility as BMW's new 'entry-level' M car. You can read the
first of our reviews at
Suffice to say that we liked it, but in deciding how best to share this
experience more widely, I decided to create a video to provide the
buyers-eye view as you would find if you were taking a look in a showroom.
For the video buffs among you the film was shot using a Canon HV20 and
captured in 1920x1080 at 23.976 fps. The image was fed into a Mac G5,
transcoded from .m2k to .mov using Cineform NeoScene which was also used to
remove pulldown. Then Premiere and AfterEffects CS5 were used to edit and
grade before exporting in H.264 format.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Music is by the awesome Greek duo,
StrangeZero from their album 'Newborn Butterflies' and the track is called
2011 BMW 1-Series facelift revealed - driving and beauty shots
BMW has unveiled a minor facelift for the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible.
Mimicking the 1-Series M Coupe, the updated models receive a new front
bumper, redesigned wheels, and LED-infused lighting units. Inside, there's
additional standard equipment, new upholstery, and revised trim.
Engine options will carryover, but the 135i will drop the 3.0-liter twin-turbo for the single twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six (dubbed the
N55). Despite the fact that they both produce 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and
300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque, BMW says the new engine will offer "better
throttle response and even more fuel efficiency." It will be mated to a
six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission
(DCT) is optional.
Pricing information hasn't been released, but the updated models will go on
sale in March following their public debut in Detroit next month.
BMW M-Coupe vs Audi TT Coupe - With Richard Hammond
Richard Hammond puts two van drivers to the test - Brian Walshaw and Carl
Harrison, as they take two of the most popular and powerful roadsters for a
spin - an Audi TT and a BMW M-Coupe. They both find out how the car's
perform and handle, as well as how stylish and practical they are. The
M-Coupe has a menacing 3.2 litre engine, which produces around 325bhp, a
top speed of 155mph and a 0-60 time of just 5.5 seconds. The TT Coupe,
however, has an engine which produces 225bhp, but with it's quattro,
four-wheel drive system, it makes the TT a more nimble and more agile
2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the all new 2011 BMW 1 series

cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
