We promised to bring you all videos, pictures and information from the 1-Series M prototype test drive event in Leipzig last week. Keeping up to that, heres the first batch, plenty of pictures and a video. Stay tuned for more, including the reviews from 1addicts members who attended that event.
The 1M Coupe will be shown in the BMW Welt in Munich this weekend (Saturday Nov. 20 and Sunday Nov. 21). The car will sport the same level of disguise as in the pictures from Paris. Also be sure to tune into Bimmerpost this weekend as member test drives of the 1M coupe will be released this weekend!
Well respected auto journalist Chris Harris of EVO shares his glowing review of the 1M Coupe in a rare test drive video. Anyone excited before about the 1M coupe will be even giddier after hearing that it feels like a true M car, for real enthusiasts!
The latest scoop photo of the 1-series M coupe shows several previously unseen elements on the 1M coupe – the production M3 mirrors, the duckbill spoiler, and peeks of the LCI headlights and tail lights. Oh, and there’s also a little ole F10 M5 in the photo.
Here are some unique in depth photos from the 1M Coupe, including the dash, suspension setup, and cloth interior.
Most if not all 1 Series M Coupe initial drive reviews are now in. We’ve compiled the list for your review and reference. The next set of reviews should be actual drives of the production version sometime next year after the 1M coupe’s reveal at 2011 NAIAS in Detroit.
Autobild is reporting that a carbon fiber roof will be an available option on the upcoming 1 series M coupe, the first we have heard of this. The lack of denial by BMW insider Scott26 who chimed in on the topic makes us think this one potentially has some solid credibility.
Think the 1M Coupe has Alpine325ci’s attention and interest? He has been prolifically rendering 1M coupes, and the latest (and best) render updates the front view of the 1-series M coupe to include the LCI (facelift) lights which have already been spied and confirmed to be featured on the 1M.
The 1M coupe is said to be coming in only three colors – Valencia Orange, Black, and Alpine White, the latter of which is previewed here by our Alpine325ci. Seen here is a rear rendering which follows the stunning front rendering from a few weeks back.
Car Enthusiast weighs in with their initial drive impressions, and yet positive review, full of potential for the 1M Coupe.
