BMW has released new information about the upcoming 1-Series M Coupe.

The company has confirmed that power for the little rocket will come from the bi-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine with approximately 340 hp. It will be mated exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission. The car will weigh around 1500 kg and feature a chassis, braking system and rear differential similar to the M3.

According to Albert Biermann, Head of Development at BMW M GmbH, "The 1-Series M Coupe is completely in the tradition of the first BMW M3. It is compact, focused on the essential, and presents outstanding driving dynamics. In addition, it opens the door to BMW M - in particular its price will also make it more accessible than our other products."

The 1-Series M Coupe will be unveiled in December, before it debuts at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Sales are scheduled to begin in the summer of 2011 and pricing will be between the 135i Coupe and the M3 Coupe, with a clear tendency towards the 135i.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Wow! That's a nice design on the BMW 1 series coupe. Even though the 135i is quite smaller compare to other series of BMW, it still has enough power to boast among other sports car. I noticed that the 135i and 128i are almost the same in terms of body shape, the only difference would be parts under the hood like a 2012 BMW 128i oxygen sensor, a bigger engine for the 135i and etc. Still, both of them are impressive sedan cars.
