BMW 1 Series M Coupe Confirmed and You Could Be the First to Drive It [video]
BMW has confirmed an M version of its 1 Series Coupe with a YouTube video showing the small sports car being rung out on Spain’s Ascari race track. No concrete details are yet known about the car but BMW M CEO Dr. Kay Segler says its so good that, “You will not leave the car. You will not give the keys to anyone else. You will smile.”
Officially called the 1 Series M Coupe (following the naming direction used with the X5 M and X6 M), it is expected to get BMW’s single-turbo inline-six engine making around 330-hp and mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Other highlights are sure to include upgraded brakes, a stiffer and more capable suspension, not to mention a more hard-core dynamic stability control system to deliver maximum on-track fun.
But better than all this is the fact that you could be the first to drive the production version of the car once it debuts. If you’re interested (who isn’t?) enter by going to M-Power.com at the link below.
