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 up-to-date form.
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 electronically-controlled overBoost 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).
► 2011 BMW 1M Coupe - step 2
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
BMW 1 Series M Coupe review - Auto Express
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
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.

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

2014 BMW M4 (F80/F82)
Typically, when BMW releases a new M3, it launches it in coupe form first.
(In fact, sales of the M3 sedan have, in North America at least, slowed to
such an extent that BMW NA was tempted to stop bringing it here
altogether.) But not the new model -- according to the latest intel, the
next-gen M3 will arrive in four-door guise first.
