Upcoming 2012 Cars BMW M1 Preview with specification and prices and reviews
We haven’t heard about an M1 from BMW since 1981, and BMW is turning heads with its Upcoming 2012 Cars M1. Possibly taking cues from other German automakers who are bringing back re-invented designs in a modern framework, BMW’s new M1 will be a plug-in hybrid.
BMW M1 Performance
Expect BMW to use its Efficient Dynamics system for the Upcoming 2012 Cars M1, including a 1.5-liter, three-cylinder turbodiesel engine. BMW also plans on including two electric motors, which will be powered by 98 lithium powercells. BMW estimates say the M1 will get an impressive 356 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. If speed is your issue, the M1 looks promising: Initial tests say that the M1 will go from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.
BMW M1 Exterior Features
Chiseled and dynamic, the M1 is a two-door coupe that has a bit of Batmobile in it. Taillights are angled and pronounced, and the design hugs the road. BMW went back to its Formula One roots for the M1 and is designing it to be particularly aerodynamic. Featuring a pronounced front end, the M1 isn’t curvy, but its certainly attractive.
