► 2011 BMW 1M Coupe - 340 ch
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

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

Nurburgring Lap 1M Coupe vs CSL
A lap with a Bmw 1M Coupe on the Nurburgring. The car was awesome and no
problems whatsoever. BTG lap time was 8.15 with traffic and i also needed
to back off throttle for an accident in the last part. Without traffic and
the accident under 8 min BTG is possible. I am following a CSL. Which is a
nurburgring track day car. CSL has a cage, big brakes, lightweight Exhaust and race seats en runs on pilotsport
cup tires. The 1M coupe was completely off factory. I was amazed how well
this 1M coupe runs on the Nurburgring.
