A few hours ago we showed you the first image of the new BMW 1 Series Sedan, a model presented only for the Chinese market – at least for now – and those points directly to its German rivals, the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the Audi A3 Sedan.
Both the star and the hoop models have high performance variants and of course, the recreation specialists have not been slow to convert the Series 1 Sedan into an authentic M.
The hypothetical BMW 1 Series Sedan would presumably have the same heart as the BMW M2 Cope.
The new Twin Power Turbo M 3.0 in-line six-cylinder engine has a power output of 272 kW / 370 hp at 6,500 rpm (the red line is at 7,000 rpm). Equally fascinating is the delivery of power. The maximum torque of 465 Nm between 1,400 and 5,560 revolutions becomes for a brief moment of 500 Nm with the function “overboost”.

The BMW M1 Sedan would be equipped with the seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission (M DKG) and equipped with the “launch control” function, capable of stopping the clock in just 4.3 seconds when accelerating from 0 to 100 km / h. The top speed would be 250 km / h with electronic cut. In addition, the performance of the model equipped with the M DKG box would be only 7.9 liters per 100 km, while CO2 emissions are only 185 g / km, demonstrating the high efficiency of the vehicle. Gasoline consumption would also be lower due to the Auto Start Stop function, included as standard, as well as by the braking energy recovery system.
The BMW M1 Sedan could count as the M2 Coupé with aluminum axles, coming from the BMW M3 and BMW M4, with the M Servotronic steering with two features, as well as the M system of composite brake.
In addition to all this, an M-regulation differential would be installed to optimize traction capacity and dynamic stability. With Dynamic Stability Control (DSM) Dynamic Mode (MDM) , a slight shift of the tires to allow for controlled skidding to be made by drawing curves in the circuits would allow the driver to fully enjoy the steering wheel.
How do you see the return of the denomination M1? Will it be this way or will it all stay in an M135i just like in the 3 and 5 door versions?
