BMW unveiled today a new set of images showing the upcoming BMW 1 Series M.
From these images we can see the BMW 1 Series M Valencia Orange. The 1 Series M will be available in just three colors, Alpine White, Jet Black, and Valencia Orange. It will also be available in manual-transmission (three-pedal) only–no DCT dual clutch, unlike the 135i.
The 1 Series M Coupe will get a 335-horsepower version of the turbocharged N55 inline-6, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Top speed will be electronically limited to 155 mph, with 0-60-mph acceleration in around 4.5 seconds.
We anticipate a price of about $45,000 for the 2011 BMW 1 Series M.
