We’re coming to you live from the 2012 Paris motor show and our first car covered is the BMW M135i 3-door hatchback. This model had its world public debut at the 2012 AMI show in May, but its showing here at the 2012 Paris motor show represents its biggest audience yet.

Inside are the the vitals on this newest model to the BMW M Performance Automobiles lineup. The F21 M135i will unfortunately not make it to North America.

Here’s a video summarizing the M135i hatchback [official thread] [reviews].

Although the M135i will not be available in the North American market, it’s recently been rumored that a M235i coupe (2 Series coupe version of the M135i) will be the first M Performance Automobile to be introduced to the US market.

Powered by a 320hp version of the N55 3.0-litre inline 6, the M135i will be the fastest 1-series currently available.

The M135i has been confirmed to be coming with optional manual transmission and AWD xDrive. The coupe version of the M135i (which may be called the M235i as the F22 coupe may take on the 2-series badge) has been … CONTINUED
