2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe raw footage - driving and beauty shots

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 program. 92 Hi-Res Photos: http://www.worldcarfans.com/110121029971/2012-bmw-1-series-m-coupe-unveiled-video

2011 Jeep Compass unveiled
Jeep has officially unveiled the facelifted 2011 Compass. Borrowing a number of design cues from the Grand Cherokee, the Compass features a new hood, modified fascias, a revised grille, and restyled lighting units. Elsewhere, there's a body-color spoiler, plastic body cladding, and standard 17-inch aluminum wheels (18-inchers are optional). Inside, the cabin echoes the Patriot with soft-touch door panels, a new center armrest, an updated steering wheel, and improved seats. Under the hood, two engines will be available. The entry-level 2.0-liter four-cylinder produces 158 hp (117 kW) and 141 lb-ft (191 Nm) of torque, which enables it to return 23 mpg city / 29 mpg highway. The optional 2.4-liter churns out 172 hp (128 kW) and 165 lb-ft (223 Nm) of torque. Thanks to dual Variable Valve Timing (VVT), it also returns 23 mpg city / 29 mpg highway. Regardless of what engine is selected, it is connected to a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional. Freedom Drive I is your basic all-wheel drive system, while Freedom Drive II adds low-range gearing, an increased ride height, and Trail Rated badging. No word on pricing, but the 2011 Compass will start arriving at dealerships later this month. Hi-res photos: http://www.worldcarfans.com/110121430020/2011-jeep-compass-unveiled





2012 BMW 6-Series Cabrio revealed
Intended as a surprise unveiling at the Los Angeles Auto Show, BMW has revealed the 2011 6-Series convertible. However, for reasons unknown the drop-top never made it to the show. It's unfortunate given the importance of the sunny Californian market. Drawing inspiration from the Concept 6-Series Coupe, the convertible has a long bonnet, a forward-slanted grille, xenon headlights, distinctive LED fog lights and 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inchers on the 650i). To reduce weight, BMW has retained the 6-Series' double buttress soft top which can be lowered in 19 seconds and raised in 24 seconds at speeds up to 25 mph (40 km/h). Inside, the cabin mimics the previous 6-Series but there is a greater emphasis on material quality and driver-focused controls. Notable highlights include Dakota leather upholstery (Nappa leather with SunReflective Technology is optional) and a freestanding 10.2-inch iDrive display which can display e-mails via Bluetooth connection with a BlackBerry smartphone. At launch, two engines will be available. The 640i uses a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 320 hp (239 kW / 324 PS) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). In terms of efficiency, expect 35.8 mpg (imp) in the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 185 g/km. In the 650i, power is provided by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 407 hp (304 kW / 413 PS) and 600 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the drop top to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, before hitting an electronically limited 155 mph (250 km/h). Furthermore, it is expected to average a combined 26.4 mpg (imp) and emit 249 grams of CO2 per kilometer. Regardless of what engine is selected, a six-speed manual is standard and eight-speed automatic is optional (some markets, such as the UK, will be automatic only). To ensure the convertible handles like a proper BMW, engineers installed an advanced suspension which features an aluminum-intensive double wishbone front axle and a multi-link rear. Dynamic Damper Control is standard, but optional Active Roll Stabilization can further improve things to ensure flat and stable cornering. Additionally, an Integral Active Steering system is available. It combines the Active Steering system for the front axle with a new steerable rear axle which gives the 6-Series greater "high-speed stability and enhanced maneuverability for parking and city use." Compared to its predecessor, the new 6-Series is 74mm longer, 39mm wider, and 9mm shorter. This results in a much needed increase in rear passenger room and a bigger boot which holds up to 350 liters of luggage (300 liters with the roof down). The convertible will be launched in Europe in March and U.S. sales are slated to begin in the spring. Prices to be announced at a later date.

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. http://www.worldcarfans.com/110121630064/2011-bmw-1-series-coupe--convertib le-facelift-revealed





GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept revealed
GMC has unveiled the Sierra All Terrain HD concept, ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show. Designed to be one of the most capable trucks ever created, the All Terrian is a Sierra HD on steroids. Compared to the standard model, the concept is shorter, wider, and taller. Furthermore, it has been equipped custom control arms, Fox off-road shocks, front/rear jounce shocks, automatic locking differentials, and a beefy front stabilizer bar with electric disconnection. In terms of styling, the concept features a massive grille, bulging fender flares, LED lights and 20-inch aluminum wheels with 35-inch BFGoodrich KM2 tires. Out back, the bed has a composite liner and two compartments which house an air compressor and a 110-volt outlet. While no interior pictures were released, GM says the cabin has two-tone leather seats, satin chrome trim, and a next-generation navigation system with an 80 GB hard drive. Power is provided by a Duramax 6.6-liter V8 diesel engine with 397 hp (296 kW) and 765 lb-ft (1,037 Nm) of torque. Performance specifications weren't released, but GM estimates the All Terrain would have a payload capacity of 2,700 pounds (1,225 kg) and a towing capacity of 13,000 pounds (5,896 kg).

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. Engine 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 up-to-date form. 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 electronically-controlled overBoost 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).

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 http://www.skiddmark.com/2010/12/09/in-the-studio-with-bmws-1-series-m-coup e/ 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 'Ikebana'.

2012 BMW 1 Series M Coupe - 2011 Detroit Auto Show
FOR MORE AUTO SHOW VIDEOS & NEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/car-news/all-the-latest/2011-detroit-auto-show After months of well-calculated teasing, the wraps have finally come off of the new 2012 BMW 1 Series M Coupe. While the automaker decided against gracing its entry-level mode with an official "M1" designation -- in deference to its original M1 Supercar -- one look at the new M Coupe's mechanical specs and aggressive styling tweaks leaves no doubt about the exceptional efforts the go-fast M-meisters expended in creating a relatively affordable spiritual successor to the pioneering BMW M3 model. http://www.kbb.com/bmw/1-series/2012-bmw-1-series/

Fifth Gear: Audi RS3 vs. BMW 1-Series M
Fifth Gear UK and its famous host Tiff Needell compares the Audi RS3 versus the all-new BMW 1 Series M Coupe. The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five cylinder turbo drives all four wheels via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW, on the other hand, has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo and it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned six-speed manual. While the 1M is rumored to redline at around 7,000 rpm, the RS3 is able to rev up to 6,800 rpm. The RS3 sprints to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph). The compact car weighs in at only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 pounds). On the other hand, the 1M is rumored to run to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and weigh in at 1611 kg (3,552 pounds). So, who takes the win home? Watch the video to find out...
