BMW’s newest M-car is about to be released and to help promote the little bugger they’ve launched a series of videos. The third and final video launched yesterday so we thought you might like to check them all out in succession.
Incase you haven’t heard, the new rocket from Bavaria is the 1-Series M Coupe. BMW enthusiasts know why it’s not called the “M1″, but if you’re questioning the name, there’s some history behind the M1 name that BMW does not want to mess with. I think they made the right decision.
The new car will get a tuned version of the N-54 bi-turbo 6 cylinder, found in the original 335i, and should produce about 340hp. The weight should be in the range of about 3,300-3,400 lbs, which is still a bit heavy for such a small car, but the performance should still be quite exhilarating with 0-60 times estimated in the mid 4-second range.
