The car that everyone wants to drive is finally here! And now you can know everything about it. The twin turbo 3.0-Liter straight six is finally rated at 335Hp which allows the new 1 Series M Coupe to reach 100 Km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds. There is no mention of the top speed since it is limited to 250 Km/h (155 mph) but i don't think that's important for this kind of cars. what's interesting though, is that the car is delivered with a proper six speed manual transmission. That should be good news for purists. Automatic gearbox lovers don't have to be so sad since BMW seems to be cooking something for them too. The M drive button will make his appearence in the 1 series M coupe as well and will have as effect the sharpening of the throttle response.

A few days after its official unveiling, the 1 series M Coupe has already proven its self as a track beast by beating both the E60 M5 and the E46 M3 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time board. No lap footage has been made available till now by you can watch a real life footage of the car in which you can hear its engine sound too in the video below. Don't forget to check out the high res gallery below.
