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.
In 1998, Volkswagen AG decided to revive the legendary Bugatti automobile
brand, purchasing all trademark rights, and the next year Bugatti
Automobile S.A.S. was founded in Molsheim, Alsace, as a Volkswagen France
As early as 1998, Volkswagen presented its first Bugatti prototype at the
Paris Auto Salon -- the Bugatti EB 118, a two-door coupé with 555 HP
designed by Italdesign. It was followed by another Italdesign product, the
Bugatti EB 218, a four-door limousine which was presented at the Geneva
Auto Salon in 1999. At the International Automobile Exhibition in Frankfurt
in the fall of that year, Volkswagen introduced the Bugatti 18.3 Chiron,
named after the greatest Bugatti racecar driver of the interwar era. The
Bugatti Veyron Concept
Car was first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show. Both the Chiron and the Veyron were developed by the
Volkswagen AG design team led by Hartmut Warkuss.
In 2001, Volkswagen decided to start serial production of the
whose official name was "Veyron 16.4". In the fall of 2004,
after renovation of the traditional Bugatti headquarters at Château Saint
Jean was completed and the new assembly studio constructed, Bugatti S.A.S.
began manufacturing the first Veyron. About 80 cars are assembled
each year, most of them being picked up directly in Molsheim by their new
owners. This is a pleasure that customers back in Ettore Bugatti's days
also used to indulge in.

New BMW 1-Series M Coupe 2011 HD
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
Большой тест-драйв (видеоверсия): BMW 1 серии
Сегодня в «Большом тест-драйве» машина, с

Dinan S3-R BMW 1M: Damn Near Perfect
Dinan takes automobiles from BMW, and makes them better. It's as simple as
that... but then again it isn't. The cars that Dinan starts with are
already pretty well sorted. Still, there's always room for improvement and
a Dinan-badged car has unquestionably been improved.
Such is the case with the Dinan-tuned BMW 1M. You start with a machine
that's already a joy to drive... and then you make it perfect.
