Bmw M1?


Is this the rumored BMW M1? Could these photos be the real BMW M1? Several magazines and online blogs have reported in the past few weeks that BMW is already working on the M1 model. The BMWCCA magazine, Roundel, in its latest isssue, has stated that the “BMW M is working on a new M car based on the 1 Series coupe”.



There are also voices expressing their opinion by saying that the market doesn’t allow for an M1 car and it makes absolutely no sense for BMW to actually launch a 1-series, M model.

While, I would love to see a BMW M1 version, I have to admit that I agree with the people stating that it makes no sense to have an M car based on the 1-series. The 135i already comes with a twin turbo, 300hp engine and it has lots of potential for tuning.

Also, if BMW will come up with an M1, the price will have to be somewhere over 40k, and that will step into the 335i price market, which could affect their sales.

Let’s assume though that the BMW M1 will be manufactured, then the consumers will have some difficult choices at around the same selling price:

1. a BMW 335i , 300hp and aprox. 40k

2. a BMW M3 46, 333hp and aprox. 40k

3. a BMW M1, unknown hp but at around same price.

Would this be a difficult choice for you?

I like those wheels a lot more than the 5 spokes in the rest of the pictures!

Will the 135i have those wheels and gills in the fenders like in the above pics? Or is that just for the possible M1?

If they do make an M1 what would they power it with? the 3.0 turbo makes as much power as the S54 and putting the M3 V8 would make it faster than an M3 so that would never happen. I think the most likely thing would be a 135 with higher boost limited slip and some M bling.

I'd like to know where those pictures came from? real or a nice photo shop deal? and if they are making an M1 they should go with big fender flares to add tribute to the E30 M3 other than the stupid antenna.
