Cool Autobild's 1M Coupe specs & render

Autobild's current issue has an exclusive on the 1M Coupe. According to Autobild, the 1M Coupe will have 340PS, twin turbo N54 engine, 6MT standard (DCT optional).


** Note: these specs have NOT been officially confirmed **

Scan and translation by southlight:
  • Launch in June 2011 (that's for Europe I guess)
  • 340 PS
  • 3.0l inline 6 with two turbochargers - same engine as Z4 35is
  • Flared fenders front and rear
  • New seats and new gauges (screenshot @ http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=406297)
  • 19 inch wheels standard (GTS wheels, IMO)
  • 6MT standard, DCT optional
  • Faster than the E46 M3
  • Around EUR 48k (for comparison, 135i costs EUR 40k)
  • Rather a little Gran Turismo than a 'race car'
  • Great low revv acceleration, still quite comfortable
  • For this reason, Autobild speculates about a 1-M GTS

They really needed to make the hood more aggressive. I wish they hadn't overlooked that.

Haha do a search you find a post of me telling you Z4 3.5is engine will be used. I was an idiot and it wasn t thru. My bmw insider won t lie either

So we have a car which has

an engine from a AG car.
an suspension from an M3
brakes from an M3
subframe from an M3
diff from an M3
wheels from an GTS M3
Coupe body from AG.

What is new then.

Wide arches, carbon roof and exhaust and some sporty seats.


And the latest rumor is. The car might not have a full mechanical diff but an E brake diff.

Given what M has said, I DOUBT they will have a shitty ediff in the car. Looking at it, I don't think cooling fins and a pumpkin that size would be needed for that either.

The power is quite reasonable and the differential from M3 is a very attractive feature.

Disappointed! N55 with TT would be nicer.
335hp - disappointed...

Can anyone point me to picture of new seats?

I've read all sorts of gay about this car, ranging from "I won't buy it if it's not called M1" to "if it hasn't got four pipes it's not an M car"

A crappy e-diff would put me off more than anything. Yep, even more than the turbochargers...

It's still got a chance with me though

It's not like we can't mod a regular 135i to have all this... The main ingredients I would demand from M Division are: mechanical diff, better-engineered suspension(NO under-steer, little to NO body-roll)

Well I've just checked what's on the autobild's homepage and here's a small article about the coming 1 ///M ! You can check the link here, but it's in german:
http://www.autobild.de/artikel/bmw-1...=36&now=78#mmg

In the article is given a little bit different info as in the magazine. Here is a small overview:

Engine: ~350 HP, will be some kind of derivative of the N54, as the one in 135i
Chasis: lighter than than current 135i, through the use of light-weight materials
Transmission: 6 MT, so far the article says that the DCT is not foreseen for 1///M
Suspension: very sport-adjusted
Differential comes at all cost.

Well probably nothing new, but it's strange how these guys contradict themselves!

Anyway I thing this will be a small beast, and will be a big step towards the values, which all BMW enthusiasts appreciate. Let's just wait for some specs conformation from BMW, because this speculations are killing me!

Seeing how our 135's are underrated by 20-30hp from the factory puts this new M in the 355+ range if said above hp numbers turn out to be true.

And the latest rumor is. The car might not have a full mechanical diff but an E brake diff.
And why is everyone rushing off to believe these magazines? Hell, even the damn C&D and Autobild specs are off...fishy anyone? Maybe it's because they're all speculation. I wouldn't go assuming they're putting the engine from the Z in this thing until we all get official confirmation.

Everyone needs to just relax and wait. One bogus article and people are up in arms. Remember when the articles all said this is an 135is with an NA engine?? They were...speculating yet again. BMW has not released any official figures, let's all relax and just enjoy the pictures until we get some real information.

Seems like some of you out there are still on the prowl to put the car down if for no reason other than you want it to fail...I would think that as BMW enthusiasts, we would want them to produce great cars, even if it's not one we would buy (ie...doesn't have to have all the crap we want on it...just be a great car).

Car and driver drove the 1-M quite consistent with the Autobuild article:

Although, it was sitting in the passenger seat, it gives a precise idea of most of these things, if not all (except the motor code and exact weight specs).

Footnotes:

- Still N54 engine with 335 HP
- No mention worthy exhaust sound let alone the wail of a typical M car
- Low-revving engine much like X5 M, X6 M and F10 M5
- Weighs around 3400 - 3500 lbs
- Still some turbo lag
- Handles well

I wonder if the 1M will have that automatic adjusting redline like the M3 has that once the engine is warmed up the redline goes up.

Lower to what? 4500 rpm?

Why seriously?? What is so scary about a typical 6800 - 7000 rpm redline when the engine is cold since 95% cars these days can rev that high? If that was an issue then just about every car out there will have lowering redlines then.

i suppose the journalist on the passenger seat could see how far the rev counter would go.

If it stops at 7000 rpm we proberly know it s a souped up AG turbo engine. If the engine screams at more then 8000 rpm then it s a proper motorsport engine.

Yes, all current M's have this so I wouldn't see why this one wouldn't.

7k redline is confirmed in the interior shots. the more details that come out the more meh it gets for me. knowing bmw this car might actually weight more than a 135 which will be the deal breaker
