Bmw To Unleash 350bhp M1

83 posts in this topic

Unfortunately, some people here and elsewhere seem far too hung up on the headline figures of a diesel car. Sure, they make bags of torque, which in some instances is nice to have for sure. But the reality is, the power delivery in a diesel is just never going to be comparible to a petrol car like an M3. Even if the M department got their hands on the diesel engine, it would still be delivered in a short sudden burst over a low RPM range.

For real sports car driving that's not a lot of good. If all people care about is outside lane of motorways over taking it's fantastic.

Im tempted to make that into my signature :thumbsup:

Get that man a :beer:

I actually saw a 1M Coupe last week, first time I've seen one. It was in Orange and sounded sweeeeeeet.

Mit - it was driving down Fenchurch St.

Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar ran one for 6 months or so and he lives in Brighton IIRC, so it was probably him you saw batting it down the A27 :)

There is one that works just next door to me, i should really take a photo of it although i wont be seeing it for a while, It's insane how wide/agressive styling the body has, it needs to be seen in real life to apprectiate it imo, AMAZING!
