Video of an AW 1 M Coupé on the road in UK

Ok, you can't see that much. Seems like the camera man drives a pretty fast car, too (could be a V8).

If that were me I would have pulled alongside and talked to the guy.
Certainly sounds like a V8.

Could the camera car be a M3?

By the sound of the exhaust note pretty sure the camera is in an M3.

Impressive acceleration when they turn onto the highway (1:51). The M3 seems to barely keep up with the little 1M, although I doubt the M3 driver is really going all out.

i was so sad to see the cayman pull away from the 1m at the stoplight. it would have made my choice in cars so much easier if i saw the 1m just stomp the porsche out.

The thing certainly has some jam.

This scene will likely be repeated many times...M3 chasing down the 1M.

Everything is on video in the UK. You can't go to the potty there without someone watching.

Confusing...... pah, that's not even London

I tell you where it is though, it's Bracknell, which is where BMW-UK HQ is located.... which is where the 1M turns left into at the end of the clip.

Can't see the hood bulge on the camera car so not sure that it is a M3....??

Centre dash top grille doesn't look M3 either....??

Could be a VXR8...?

Indicators don't come as standard on UK spec cars. Waste of time as no Beemer driver uses them.

Certainly looks like Bracknell, second only to Milton Keynes for the number of roundabouts!

Hopefully that means I'll have a good chance of spotting one.

The two cars pass the Cayman earlier in the clip. I reckon he comes up to take a closer look.
