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.

BMW 1M Lovely Sound
Lovely BMW 1M in Valencia Orange colour. Here is a review of the car: The BMW 1 Series M Coupe is a high-performance version of the BMW 1 Series Coupe, developed by BMW's tuning branch BMW M. It is currently the smallest and cheapest M model available. The name was chosen to avoid confusion with the original BMW M1. BMW M Boss Dr. Kay Segler officially announced the making of the M variant of the BMW 1-Series Coupe on July 9, 2010, via an official YouTube video and press release. On December 9 2010, BMW officially announced all details on the car exclusively on the internet. Unlike other M models (like the M3 and M5) which use M-derived engines named Sxx, the 1 Series M Coupe uses a M-tuned, twin turbocharged version of the N54engine, as found in the 335is and Z4sDrive35is. Still a 3.0 litre inline 6 cylinder engine with direct injection, it produces 335 hp (250 kW) at 5900 rpm and 332 lb·ft (450 N·m) torque from 1500-4500 rpm (with +369 lb·ft (500 N·m) overBoost). The redline is 7,000 rpm. Official 0-60 mph time is 4.7 seconds, quarter mile (~400 m) in 13.2 seconds. The car is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) top speed. There is an M Drive button that activates a quicker throttle response program. The sole available gearbox is a 6-speed manual transmission with an M gearshift knob, dry sump lubrication system, and 3.15:1 final drive ratio. The body on the BMW 1 Series M Coupe has been modified as well, giving the car a significantly wider track and bigger body, as well as a subtle body kit to distinguish it from the standard 1 Series. Despite the car's larger size, it is 77 lb (35 kg) lighter, giving it a weight of 3,296 lb (1,495 kg). The 1 Series M Coupe is available in Valencia Orange and Black Sapphire colors, both metallic. Only non-metallic color available is Alpine White. All 1 M Coupe comes with Y-Spoke Style 359M alloy wheels. BMW was originally going to release the E82 1M Coupe as a limited edition model of approximately 2700 units. Due to positive response, the company lifted the cap and will produce as many E82 1M Coupes as they can until production ends in Spring of 2012. The 1M was featured on Top Gear on 26 June 2011 and recorded a time of 1:25.0 round the Top Gear test track (the fastest M series BMW so far) and also beat the Porsche Cayman R and Lotus Evora S in a drag race. The 1M was met with favourable reviews with Jeremy Clarkson likening it to the original Volkswagen Golf GTI.





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...
