The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that the 135i Coupe and the 135i Convertible have been launched in the United States of America.
According to the car manufacturer, prices for the BMW 135i Coupe will start at 44,145 USD and the BMW 135i Convertible will cost 48,845 USD, including the $895 destination and handling charge, but its future owners over-seas will still have to wait quite some time before they will be able to drive the two models, because they will arrive at dealerships across the United States starting this autumn.
The BMW 135i Coupe and Convertible can be distinguished by other versions thanks to its more aggressive stance, achieved with gloss black accents, 18-inch alloy wheels and a sport-tuned suspension. Interior changes are minor but they include the special badging, the stainless steel pedals and sport seats with blue contrast stitching. The two models are also fitted with a new differential, a revised stability control system with DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) and more “toys”.
Under the hood, the BMW135i Coupe and the BMW 135i Convertible are coming with the company’s 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine (N55), which is developing a total output of 320 horsepower and a peak torque of 429 Nm (317 lb-ft), an increase of 20 HP and 23 Nm (17 lb-ft). The unit can be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, as standard, or to a double clutch transmission, as an option.
