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.

MINI Paceman Concept
With the North American International Auto Show just around the corner,
MINI has released the first details about the Paceman concept.
Essentially a Countryman coupe, the Paceman is designed to appeal to
"young, modern, extrovert urbanites" that enjoy standing out from the
crowd. As such, the crossover features a bold front fascia, a sloping
roofline, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the four-seat cabin has leather upholstery, a full-length center
rail system, and unique door panel trim.
Under the hood, a turbocharged 1.6-liter
four-cylinder engine produces 155 kW (211 PS / 208 hp) and 260 Nm (192
lb-ft) of torque. It sends power to the ground through a permanent
all-wheel drive system.
While the Paceman is technically a concept, the company hinted it "could
become another building block in the ongoing development of the brand and
its product portfolio."
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.
Audi Quattro Concept raw footage - static and driving scenes
Audi is developing a production plan for the Quattro Concept as the
automaker considers building a limited series of the model, according to a
report by Autocar.
"We are rethinking standard processes to make it possible. We know how to
engineer it already," said Stefan Reil, chief of development at Quattro
GmbH, Audi's performance division, in an interview with the British car
The Quattro Concept is based on the RS5 and was created to celebrate the
30th anniversary of the original Audi Quattro all-wheel drive system. It is
powered by a 2.5 liter, 5-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 300 kW (408 PS / 402
hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque. The car weights in at just 1,300
kilograms (2,866 lbs) and manages the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in an easy 3.9
But Audi faces some challenges in taking the Quattro to production.
First off, Audi's partner in the Quattro Concept development is ItalDesign,
which currently has no production capability. And Audi has little
experience in building specialty editions in very low volume and it can't
set a price that is too high.
"We need feedback to see if it is possible. Audi has no heritage in
building 200-500 cars that are really exotic. But it won't be over
€100,000 (£87,600/$139,000)," Reil said in the story.
Audi may get some help, though, from sister brand Lamborghini, which has a
lot of experience in producing supercars with lots of carbon fiber
components such as the Quattro has.
Said Reil, "This car and Lamborghini are in the same exotic corner."
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
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.
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).
