For anyone who has been in a cave for the past 24 hours, the first full look at the 1M coupe appeared via a tantalizing video posted yesterday evening, serving as a preview to today’s official internet reveal with full press release, media, specs, and pricing info for certain market. This is expected to come at approximately 6PM EST today, so be sure to check in then!
The BMW 1-series M Coupe has just been fully unveiled in this official video! Check inside for the full look. The press release and official photos will come tomorrow (Thursday) at 6PM EST so stay tuned! This also provides the first official look at the 1-series LCI facelift, with its revised headlights (with eyebrows) and light bar tail lights.
It appears that the 1M coupe’s official internet reveal date has been moved up – to this Thursday, December 9 @ 6PM EST! Mark your calendars to tune in at that time to witness the 1M fully revealed for the first time.
Andy Priaulx and Dr. Segler pushed the ball forward another step this past Sunday December 5, with an additional piece of the BMW 1 Series M Coupé unveiled to the public at the Autosport Awards in The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London UK.
Autoblog has posted its first drive impressions of the 1-series M Coupe prototype from their test drive in Germany. Not much new info is divulged, but the general reaction is a positive one.
A 1addicts member reports that the official release/reveal date of the hotly anticipated production 1 Series M Coupe will be December 12, 2010! This date was later corroborated by BMW insider Scott. Be sure to tune 12/12/10 for the reveal.
The next partial reveal of the 1M coupe is imminent and its full unveil is next month, but it continues being evaluated. Just spotted in Munich is this black 1M coupe prototype showing covered M3 mirrors and new LCI headlights/tail lights. The wheels (Style 270M M3 winter wheels) have likely been fitted for some better cold weather traction. These photos also highlight the aggressively flared fenders of the 1 series M coupe.
Contrary to earlier reports of a 2,700 unit limit on the 1-series M Coupe, based on new info from insider Scott26, it now appears that BMW will build as many 1M coupes as demand dictates during its production run, which will end in the first quarter of 2012. Yesterday’s engine specs image shows a 3/11 date after the 1M coupe engine, which we believe may indicate the start of production as March 2011. If this is the case, the entire 1M coupe production run will span approximately one year.
The fifth review from a 1addicts member who attended the BMW 1 series M coupe test drive event is in. This one features feedback from the perspective of an E46 M3 owner. Read on inside.
