BMW has released a new commercial video where the 1M Coupe model is being promoted.
After the BMW 1M Coupe has hit quite a few international auto shows, being chosen on the way as the favorite car of some celebs in 2011, the powerful German model is now being promoted on TV too. BMW has recently revealed a new commercial video with the 1M Coupe model, and the ad is highlighting the perfect balance of the vehicle, also comparing it to older M-Power cars, like the popular 3-Series E30.
As a reminder, the BMW 1M Coupe is the high-performance version of the 1-Series coupe and it’s powered by the same N54 engine found in the 335is and the Z4sDrive35is. The unit is a 3.0 liter inline straight-six cylinder, twin turbo and direct injected, which is developing 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque (450 Nm). The 0 to 60 mph acceleration takes 4.7 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h).
The engine is being mated to a six-speed manual transmission with an M gearshift knob and dry sump lubrication system, and besides that impressive unit, the body of the vehicle has also been modified, giving the car a wider track and bigger body, as well as a body kit to make it different than the standard 1-Series Coupe.
