The new BMW 1-Series M has been highly anticipated for a long time now. Its finally launched now and the reviews all say that it definitely deserves to wear the fabled M badge.
The 1-Series M features a 3.0 litre engine producing 340hp, giving it a 0-62 time of just 4.9 seconds (exactly the same time as a 911 Carrera). Theres a whole raft of technology on it, including a variable locking-diff, compound brakes and DSC with M Servotronic.
It comes with a six-speed manual transmission, with no choice of an automatic, which proves that BMW is really aiming this car at enthusiasts. Theres a button, called the M button, which increases the throttle response, putting an even bigger smile on the drivers face!
Early reviews of it have been extremely positive. All the journalists who have driven it have a lot of good things to say about it. Apparently it feels even faster than the figures suggest it should.
Its on sale this month, prices start at 40,200. BMW are only making 450 in right hand drive, so youll need to be quick.
