Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1 Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive.
Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads? Auto Express took the wheel to find out.

Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express
Pocket rockets from BMW and Audi go head-to-head in a drag race shoot out
over the quarter mile. But which is fastest?
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

New Mercedes C-Class v Audi A4 v BMW 3 Series group test - Auto Express
Welcome to the toughest of three-way fights. The models in this test
dominate the compact executive sector, but does the arrival of the revised
Mercedes C-Class upset the established order?
The German company has carried out what it's calling a 'comprehensive
modernisation' to help the saloon leapfrog the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4.
Revised exterior styling, cleaner engines and a better-quality cabin are a
few of the changes to have been rolled out, but will they be enough?
BMW 1 Series M Coupe vs BMW M3
To the M badge faithful, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe signals a return to form.
But is it? Benchmarking the 1M against an M3 would seem the perfect way to

BMW 1M Coupe Review (M3 Fighters Pt.2) - Everyday Driver
BMWs 1M Coupe was made from the BMW parts bin and only offered for one
year. It was often discussed as even better than the E90 series M3. The
guys love the M3, so they took this 1M to the canyons to see who's the
best. And afterward they debate if this car or the Boss 302 is the better
