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).

► 2011 BMW 1M Coupe - step 2
The letter M now comes to the segment of the BMW 1 Series to symbolise
outstanding power delivery and the highly dynamic driving properties of a
high-performance sports car. In the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, the technology of
a high-performance car is combined with the agility and lightness of a
compact model to create a whole new dimension of sports-style driving
pleasure. With this 2-door model, BMW M GmbH is now realising for the first
time in this vehicle class its concept of racing-oriented performance
characteristics in a car developed for everyday use . This further extends
the company's model range, paving the way for younger target groups to be
able to access the hallmark driving experience offered by an M car.
The BMW 1 Series M Coupe embodies the unmistakable M feeling in a highly
concentrated form. Its in-line 6-cylinder engine with M TwinPower turbo and petrol direct injection develops a
maximum output of 250 kW/340 bhp with an engine-speed-oriented
characteristic curve typical of BMW M cars. With chassis technology derived
directly from motor racing, a power-to-weight ratio reduced to 4.4
kilograms per bhp and precisely optimised aerodynamic components including
innovative air curtains at the front end, supreme conversion of superior
propulsion power into thrilling driving dynamics is guaranteed. The BMW 1
Series M Coupe accelerates in 4.9 seconds from zero to 100 km/h and reaches
the 200 km/h mark after 17.3 seconds. In the area of efficiency, too, it
achieves top figures within its performance category. Its average fuel
consumption in the EU test cycle is 9.6 litres per 100 kilometres, while
CO2 emissions are at 224 grams per kilometre.
The outstanding sporty flair of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe is outwardly
expressed by the athletic character of its body design. In the exclusively
designed interior of the 4-seater, high-quality materials and an M-specific
cockpit create the ambience of a premium sports car. In its standard
configuration, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe displays the concept harmony so
characteristic of M cars: able to cope both with the extreme demands of the
race track and the diverse challenges of everyday traffic. What is more,
individual preferences in terms of comfort, safety and infotainment can be
fulfilled with a model-specific selection of equipment options also
available for the BMW 1 Series Coupe, including the BMW ConnectedDrive
BMW 1 Series M Coupé. Step 1.
Go to http://www.M-Power.com to be one of the first to drive this car. The
BMW 1 Series M Coupé is the smallest M ever built - but it's so powerful.
It is perfect for streets and race-tracks. Take a first look at this very
2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
With anticipation of enthusiasts around the world at fever pitch, BMW M
GmbH unveiled the newest member of its intimate product family. For the
first time, the coveted M badge has been granted to the popular BMW
1-Series in the form of the all-new BMW 1-Series M Coupe. The M badge was
imparted after a two-year development process through which BMW M engineers
and test drivers achieved the exceptional power delivery and the signature,
near-perfect driving behavior of a BMW M car. The 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
will be available in limited quantities and with a limited range of options
at Authorized BMW Centers in Spring, 2011.
"Eigenwillig," a German word meaning "self-willed," "individual," and
"determined to go its own way," has been the proper word to describe the
most unique and memorable M cars of the past three decades. With the
original 1988 BMW M3 as its inspiration, the 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe
combines the raw capabilities of a race car with the agility, versatility,
and seating position of a compact BMW Coupe to create a pure Ultimate
Driving Machine®. In doing so, the BMW 1-Series M Coupe continues the
eigenwillig tradition of BMW M. With its latest two-door model, BMW M is
illustrating its ability to build race car performance into a small car,
capable of everyday use.
The heart of every BMW is the engine, and so an inline-6 with outstanding
performance, free-revving behavior, and endless thrust propels the BMW
1-Series M Coupe. The concept is familiar: in the model history of BMW M,
the high-revving inline-6 is one of the classic engine formats. In the
second and third generations of BMW M3, the inline-6 became famous for
combining high output, razor-sharp response, and sonorous sounds. In the
BMW 1-Series M Coupe, the inline-6 engine concept is realized in its most
The twin-turbocharged, all-aluminum,
3.0-liter inline-6 engine is characterized by instantaneous response to the
accelerator pedal, fantastic sounds, and a free-revving spirit. The
combination of twin low-mass turbochargers and BMW's High Precision direct
injection offers an output a naturally-aspirated engine would only be able
to provide through more cylinders and larger displacement.
The turbocharger system developed for
the engine of the new BMW 1-Series M Coupe maintains a high output
throughout the entire engine speed range. Maximum output of 335 hp (250 kW)
is delivered at 5,900 rpm. Nominal peak torque is 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) from
1,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm. Redline is 7,000 rpm. The enhanced engine
management system of the BMW 1-Series M Coupe includes an
function to briefly increase torque under full load by another 37 lb-ft (50
Nm). This temporary torque peak of 369 lb-ft gives the car a substantial
increase in acceleration. The BMW 1-Series M Coupe will complete the sprint
from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds (0-100 kmh in 4.9 seconds).
The standing quarter-mile mark comes up in 13.2 seconds. Top speed is
limited electronically to 155 mph (250 kmh).
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.
BMW 1M Akrapovic Ride & Killer Sound : Absolute Beast
During Top Marques Monaco 2014, I had a ride in that insane BMW 1M. Not any
1M : this one has been tuned to 420hp and fitted with an Akrapovic Exhaust.
The sounds need no description, it's just really loud and beautiful.
Akrapovic doesn't make just noise like other Exhaust makers, they make beautiful sounds.
With 420hp and a manual gearbox, this little BMW 1M really is a driver's
car. Powerful and loud, it handles very well!
This was probably my favourite car of the 2014 Top Marques.
Thanks a lot to Dijon Auto Racing, the only official Akrapovic dealership
in France ; they also can reprogram the ECU and performance parts for your
