Car Magazine has published pictures of the M1 undergoing cold weather testing in Scandinavia. While the guys at Car Magazine are assuming that this is a mule for the next gen 1-series coupe (F2x), its safe to say this actually is an M1 prototype. Why?

Would naming the upcoming 1-series “M” model as an M1 be sacrilege or natural and appropriate? Cast your vote now.

Autocar reports that the BMW M1 has been green lighted! Sales will begin mid-2011 and it will be powered by a turbocharged straight six motor estimated to produce around 350hp.
EVO Mag further confirms a high performance 1-series is coming, and a BMW supercar. The question is which will be called the new BMW M1.
