Munich, Apr. 7, 2012: The BMW 1 Series M Coupe brings the racetrack onto the road. The BMW M TwinPower Turbo straight six-cylinder generates explosive rushes of adrenalin and a tremendous racing of the pulse. Intense sensations, which thanks to the M high-performance chassis, strictly follow the ideal line.

The perfect interplay between superior power, self-assured control and exact precision opens up a new dimension of driving dynamics. Just as it does on the racetrack, this overall package finely tuned with the passion and combined motor sports experience of BMW M GmbH also makes the decisive difference in the BMW 1 Series M Coupé.

High-performance components such as the cooling system fit for racing, the compound braking system and the M chassis offer outstanding benefits. And combined with the advantages of the rear-wheel drive, the ideal axle load distribution, the intelligent lightweight chassis construction and the optimised aerodynamics, these characteristics actually intensify each other. This unique M setup of the BMW 1 Series Coupé supports sporting ambitions through a weight-power ratio of 4.4 kg/hp, perfect road holding, outstanding agility and large reserves of safety. In every speed range, in every driving manoeuvre.
