Though it hasn’t been made official by the German automaker themselves, it is widely believed that the BMW M135i Concept which is debuting at the upcoming 2012 Geneva Motor Show, will be heading to production.
The M135i Concept will head to Geneva with an inline-six powerplant featuring BMW’s “M Performance Twin Power Turbo technology”. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be twin-turbo, but we’re expecting it to be making around 335-hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. BMW has only promised that it’ll sport over 300-hp.
According to an inside source, the M135i will head to production and will have an optional xDrive configuration. The majority of Europe will definitely be getting it, and we’ll hold our breath on whether or not it’ll make its way to America. It’s really not a huge surprise to hear that the M135i will make its way to production, but this is as close to confirmation as we are going to get for now.
