Thanks for the correction Cyrus.

Here are the official pictures of the 1 M coupe.

It uses BMW's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, and while early estimates had the car pumping out as much as 350 horsepower, the final numbers are: 335 hp and 450 Nm of torque – exactly what you get out of this engine in the current Z4 sDrive35is. The car's ECU has an overboost function that provides an additional 50Nm of twist at full tilt, and with your foot pressed hard into the right pedal, 0-100kph will happen in just 4.7 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 250kph.
The 1M rides on standard M-specific 19-inch wheels wrapped in 245/35 rubber up front and beefy 265/35 out back.

It's a little weird from the front. The protruding rear view mirrors look out of place, the back is just alright. I love the side profile though. What price tag will it carry?

While I'm not a huge fan of how this car looks, I'm absolutely in love with the wheels on the model shown above. The bodykit, IMO, looks garish. I'd have a Cayman over this. Less power is fine by me!

Official Specifications from the Mpower website.

Wish they were a little more legible.

Newly designed piston rings are used in the engine. The two turbo chargers use turbines made from high tensile steel and will easily withstand temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Celsius.
The direct fuel injection contributes significantly to the high degree of efficiency of the engine, which uses Piezo injectors arranged centrally between the valves to ensure a particularly precisely dosed fuel supply.
The high degree of compression also increases the effectiveness. In addition, measures such as brake energy recycling and demand-controlled ancillary units are also used, so that the M engine of the BMW Series 1 M Coupé unites fascinating performance with great efficiency.

The compact six-speed transmission with dry sump lubrication is a new development. Its suitability for high torques is combined with a weight of just 43 kg – much lighter than similar gearboxes. The short M gear lever underlines the crisp and precise gear change – the traditional sportiness of this elite class.
