BMW 1-Series M-Car Back

BMW 1-Series
The BMW 1-Series M car would have been plagued by issues of pricing and performance anyway--add too much juice BMW 1-Series M and the car starts stepping on the M3's toes. Add too little, and it's not really an M car. So BMW looks to be seeking the middle ground with its 135is-badged approach.BMW 1-Series M

In an interview with Inside Line, an unnamed BMW source said that the 1-Series M car is not happening, but instead that a twin-turbo N54-powered 135is would fill the need for a more potent, yet still not M3-killing, 1-Series.BMW 1-Series M

The N54 as tuned for the 2011 335is and Z4 sDrive35is generates around 330 horsepower and just as much torque, with an overboost function that cranks up the twist-factor to 370 pound-feet for brief periods. That's sure to add some serious fun to the 135i's already dashing 300-horsepower figure,BMW 1-Series M especially if the 135is partakes of the other upgrades found in the 335is--including M Sport aerodynamics, better cooling systems, and an M Sport suspension package.BMW 1-Series M
