Video to Part 2 of the 1M strip tease has been posted on M-power.com. The uncovering was conducted by the General Manager Marketing BMW France. Not much more is revealed, but it’s interesting to see the environment in which the uncovering takes place. Looks like onlookers were free to photograph as they pleased.
The next stage of the BMW 1M Coupe tease has been officially revealed on the M-power.com site. Seen clearly in these official photos are parts of the rear bumper and fender. Also new in the photos are the camouflaged headlights, which cover the life cycle impulse (LCI or “facelift”) headlights which were seen on the ActiveE photos we recently posted. There may be additional info or video posted shortly or sometime this week, so stay tuned.
More photos of the next stage of the 1M coupe reveal (coming tomorrow) have been posted. The LCI headlights are now exposed with some camouflage tape and the rear quarter bumper/fender is seen clearly in these photos.
An 1addicts member was recently in Munich when he spotted this 1M coupe. We’ve seen many camouflaged 1M coupes in the past but what makes this one interesting is its color – blue. Stay tuned as there’s rumors that the next stage of the 1M reveal may be imminent.
New BMW 1M info and images have slowed, but Gerald Alvarez’s renditions of the upcoming 1 series M have not. Here is his latest impression of the future BMW hot coupe.
David06M3 just returned from a visit to M-Division and brings some 1M news. The 1M will be a limited production of only 2,700 units, come in only 3 colors – Alpine White, Jet Black, Valencia Orange. Manual transmission only has also been confirmed. Image by Gerald Alvarez (of course).
Alpine325ci is at it again, this time producing an absolutely gorgeous wallpaper render of the upcoming 1M Coupe, set inside a tunnel at high speed. The 1M in the image looks spot on based on all that we’ve seen of the 1M Coupe so far!
Our resident photoshop wizard, Gerald Alvarez, has again produced some great renders to share with the Bimmerpost community. These are of the upcoming1M Coupe – front and rear view. Check out the stunning renders inside!
Concensus is that the 1M Coupe will be powered by the N54 motor, but BMW has not officially announced this yet, nor has anyone seen under its hood to confirm. But, here is good visual proof of the N54 Motor, based on the sighting of the N54′s twin center catalytic converters (N55 does not have these center cats).
Try as they may, BMW can’t manage to conceal every last bit of the car that they are holding off on revealing. We have now spotted the 1M mirrors, carbon fiber diffuser/rear valence, and potentially an aggressive hood design. Scott26 also confirms a carbon fiber roof.
BMW didn’t reveal much info on the 1M this past Friday, but notable confirmed details include its color (Valencia Orange Metallic, a new exclusive color), transmission (manual 6-speed only), and the wheels to be M3 competition wheels. Other info include that the front air intake, sideskirts, and rear view mirrors are all very similar to the M3′s.
Forum member elfhearse has provided the best undercarriage photos yet of the 1M Coupe. From these photos it’s easy to see the M limited slip differential with its large cooling fins, as well as the M suspension bits. This car is very much ///M.
Only 1/4 of the 1M Coupe was actually revealed at Oktoberfest, but Bimmerpost members are masters of details and imagination. The very observant member Shinobi has spotted what looks to be the edge of a front fender vent peeking out from under the cover.
Our friends at Bimmerfile have posted these photos of the 1-series M Coupe from earlier in the day at Oktoberfest. Under the sunlight it’s much easier to see the true hue of the Valencia Orange color. Not much more of the car is revealed in these photos, but we do get to see the same car from different angles.
The BMW 1M Coupe has now been unveiled (partially) via this video!! The video was just posted on M-power.com and shows the highly anticipated 1M Coupe’s stunning front 3/4 view! Stay tuned tonight for more info/coverage from BMW CCA Oktoberfest.
The head of BMW M Division, Dr. Kay Segler, will be making a presentation at 7pm CST from BMW CCA Oktoberfest and all signs are pointing to some type of 1M Coupe teaser (or dare we dream, a reveal) at the presentation. Stay tuned in a few hours!
This photo posted by insider Scott26 shows a camera rig being used to shoot the 1M Coupe for a promo spot or commercial. The use of a motorcycle for a camera rig is interesting and we predict that it will result in some very exciting angles and perspectives of the 1M in the resulting video.
BMW CCA is dropping some seriously strong hints that the 1M Coupe may be “sneak peek” introduced at this year’s BMW CCA Oktoberfest at Road America in WI. Using words such as “fast, light, nimble car” to refer to the yet unknown car, and drawing references to other M-cars, as well as saying that the head of BMW M GmbH will be in attendance, these could not be stronger hints to a 1M Coupe intro!
