BMW’s new 1 Series is a modern and authentic performance coupe that draws inspiration from its iconic 2002 models of some 40 years ago. On sale in the spring of 2008, the 1 Series coupe will be as a 128i powered by a 3.0-liter, 230 horsepower inline 6-cyinder engine and a 135i with a 300 horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 3.0-liter 6-cylinder under the hood. 0 to 60 mph acceleration takes just 5.3 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph

BMW’s 2008 M3 sedan and coupe share a high-revving 414 horsepower V-8 engine and a balanced chassis that is designed to be, according to BMW, “faster than its engine.” The M3 will also feature driver-adjustable settings for crucial dynamic controls including steering, damping and stability (and an available steering-wheel-mounted “MDrive” button to store the preferences) as well as sumptuous interior that can be optimized to a driver’s desires including the comprehensive entertainment/navigation system operated through BMW’s latest iDrive controller
