BMW has officially presented new details and images with the most powerful version of the 1-Series, the M135i.
Along with the 2013 BMW 1-Series, the German based automaker has brought the M135i into the spotlights by releasing official images and details with the model. According to the car manufacturer, the 2013 BMW M135i is coming with the 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder engine, which is developing a total output of 320 horsepower at 5,800 rpm thanks to the TwinPower Turbo system. The unit is producing a peak torque of 450 Nm, available between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm.
BMW says that the M135i can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds with the automatic transmission and in 5.1 seconds with the manual, before reaching the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. When equipped with the automatic transmission, the model is burning just 7.5 liters of fuel every 100 km in an average cycle, while the manual version is burning with 0.5 liters more.
The BMW M135i is coming with recalibrated suspension, steering and braking system, with the latter being replaced and “signed” by M Sport and getting larger brake discs and blue painted brake calipers. The model is sitting on 18-inch M alloy wheels wrapped in 225/40 and 245/35 tires front to rear. The 2013 BMW M135i can be easily recognized from other versions in the lineup thanks to its front and rear fascias design, the M135i logos, the textile/Alcantara leather, the M Sport steering wheel and other minor changes.
