In many ways the spiritual successor to the E30 M3. Powered by a M derivitive of the N54 the inline six makes 340hp and giving the 1M a 0-60 time of 4.5 seconds.

I drove the 1 Series M Coupe at Monticello yesterday...

I hate to be a tease, but I drove the new 1 Series M Coupe (1M Coupe) at Monticello Motor Club yesterday... plenty of hot laps alone with the car. BMW also let me take an M3 Competition out for back-to-back comparisons...

My full story comes out on Autoblog.com this Friday (in just 47 hours)... but I can tell you I liked the 1M Coupe better (yes, even I was surprised at that).

I took tons of pics and a video. Here is one...

BMW hasn't released production volume... so it could be as few as 750 units. Rare, and likely collectible.

Keep in mind the manual seats are a bit lower (10 mm, I think) so you get more headroom for helmets.

I must say it's about time someone here on Bimmerfest has something good to say about the new 1M. I can't wait to get mine. I have had a deposit on one since October and still waiting for my Allocation.

Every review of the 1M so far has been great.

That's because it is an excellent vehicle. You watch, every review of the new Audi A7 (just now making its journalist rounds) will also be excellent. There are a few brand-new cars out there which kick ass.

I couldn't agree more!!! The 1m will be an instant Cult BMW. With such low production numbers and how great this little car is I couldn't pass it up.
