BMW 1 Series M Coupe

Probably the best car BMW has produced in nearly a decade, well that’s what some experts are saying with the general consesne being that this is a dynamic, charismatic, involving and capable ride.

The steering is meaty, quick and responsive allowing the driver to enjoy the 1M’s perfect 50:50 balance especially when turning into bends. Twinned with a punchy engine, this car involves the driver and offers a pleasurable ride. The 3-litre twin-turbocharged N54 engine already made an appearance in the 135i, 335i, Z4, X5 and X6 producing 332 bhp and 332lb/ft of torque but feels much faster than this based on test drive feedback. The 1M does 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and is 10 seconds quicker around the Nurburgring than its predecessor.

This model is not like other 1 Series models in that it has all of the best parts of the M3 such as suspension components but carries 100kg less weight. The 1M offers effortless performance through its agility as it can warp distances with little throttle movement placing the 1M as a new benchmark when compared to the M3.

The 1M is not just a track focused machine, but a quick and competent car for all round use lending itself nicely to our winding British roads and as a companion for long motorway journeys. 

You can be the proud owner of this fun car which could just be the drive of your life from just £40,020 on the road .
