Cool Chris Neville Reviews 1M on SPEED (Videos)

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Chris Neville Reviews 1M on SPEED
35
COMMENTS

Chris Neville, host on SPEED's broadcast of the 24 Hours at Daytona Grand-Am Rolex race, got some track time behind the 1M coupe at Daytona International Speedway. He provided his review in a short segment during which he glows about the upcoming baby M. Neville praises the 1M's quick tun in ability and left-right transition from its short wheelbase, ability to stick to tarmac on turns, tight and smooth grearbox, and braking ability.

Chris Neville is no stranger to performance cars, as he has been a former race winner in the SCCA Trans-Am, SPEED World Challenge, Star Formula Mazda, and GT America Stock Car series. In 1998, Neville signed with ARCO am/pm to compete in the SCCA Trans-Am series. He quickly racked up multiple podium finishes on his way to winning the Rookie of the
Year award in 1998.

Thanks to hotrod182 for the video.

Similar review on Speed from yesterday with a few action shots of the pace car. He claims the M3/1M weight differential is 400lbs which is a bit of an overstatement.

"A supercar at a great price with a view towards a sustainable future". Say whaaaa? Some marketing guys were working overtime on that line.

As much as I want to believe the review, I think we need to take it with a grain of salt given the sponsorship involvement there.

I agree. Sounds like a commercial.
