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

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'.

If The Shoe Fits, It Must Be A BMW M Coupe
“The times when I’m not bored is when I’m flying, when I’m flying my hang glider, when I’m racing the M Coupe—because all of a sudden the world moves up to my speed.” Airline pilot Alex McCulloch is a great judge of what it means to travel quickly and effortlessly through the air, and so his choice of a BMW M Coupe is telling. “Someone said, life is racing and everything else is just waiting,” McCulloch says, and after a short time with the M Coupe, he quickly realized he was going to have to bring the car to a track. “You cannot challenge yourself on public roads safely,” he says. The rare BMW fits in nicely with one of his other obscure pursuits: cross-country, long-distance hang gliding, a sport that allows him to “be in a movie.” Modified only in ways that allow him to put the car back to stock if needed, the car has been prepared for time trial events—where McCulloch is learning to be a faster driver. “I used to say it wanted to kill me, but now we’ve reached an agreement where it’s not quite as murderous,” he says.
