BMW 1 Series M Coupe (2011-12)

The BMW 1 Series M Coupe ("1M Coupe") is a high-performance version of the BMW 1 Series Coupe, developed by BMW's motorsport branch BMW M. It combines racing-oriented technology with functionality designed for everyday use and a characteristic visual appearance. While BMW naming convention would have called the car the "M1", the name "BMW 1 Series M" was used instead, to avoid confusion with the original BMW M1

The 1 Series M Coupe uses a re-tuned version of the 3.0-litre direct injection twin-turbocharged straight-6 automobile engine from BMW. It has a significantly wider track and bigger body than the standard E82 coupe, as well as a different body kit. Despite the car's larger size, it is 77 lb (35 kg) lighter than the standard E82 coupe, giving it a weight of 3,296 lb (1,495 kg). With a maximum engine output of 250 kW/340 bhp, the BMW 1-Series M Coupe achieves almost exactly the level of the third-generation BMW M3.  6-speed manual transmission. It accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds.

On the inside, The standard Boston leather sports seats includes orange contrast stitching on the black surfaces of the seats and backrests as well as the M logo embossed in the front of the headrests. There are three exterior paint finishes to choose from: Alpine White non-metallic , Sapphire Black metallic, and the colour variation Valencia Orange is available exclusively for this compact high-performance sports car.

BMW was originally going to release the 1M Coupé as a limited production model of 2,700 units. Then due to overwhelming demand, the company lifted the cap and produced a total of 6309 cars until production ended in June 2012. (wikipedia &
