BMW 1M Coupe first ride reports keep flowing in, this time from Autocar UK, which calls this a truly exciting car which feels every bit as agile as the standard M3 (at least from the passenger’s seat). Autocar reports that the 1M will be approximately 350bhp, with 6 speed manual and 7 speed DCT options, and will be lighter than the 135i.

Here are some more pictures of the 1-series M, including the first interior shots. This is still the prototype, so its subject to changes, but so for we have M3 seats, M3 steering wheel and different gauges (not sure if the two-tone dials are here to stay). Fuel cutoff appears to be at 7,000 rpm. Contrary to some reports, you can also see a proper LSD.

Car and Driver was given a ride in the prototype 1M Coupe at the Ascari racetrack in Spain and shares that even in prototype form, it was almost everything they had hoped for. They were treated to a very fast lap which demonstrated the handling prowess of the 1M Coupe. Check out their experience.

Autobilds current issue has an exclusive on the 1M Coupe. According to Autobild, the 1M Coupe will feature 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 (thats 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… CONTINUED

Jon Sibal pens the upcoming M1 / 1M convertible, which has been said to be in the works and will debut after the coupe version. As with all of Sibal’s work, it’s an impressive and definitely plausible take on what the upcoming M1 / 1M convertible will resemble.
