BMW has just released some new information about the long awaited 1-Series M Coupe, including engine information, release dates, and the toys it will carry.

Under the hood will be the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six with 340 horsepower. That motor will be connected to six-speed manual transmission. There will no automatic option with this vehicle. That motor should be more than enough to haul around the car’s 3,307-pound weight.

The M1 will feature a chassis, braking system, and rear differential similar to the M3. In total, that power and these tweaks have made the M1 faster than the E46 M3 around the Nordschleife.

UPDATE 03/10/2011: BMW has placed an online configurator for the 1-Series M Coupe, the perfect opportunity to play a bit with the options offered for this amazing car. From this configurator, we were also able to get the pricing on all of the options offered. Hit the jump to check them out in our price section.

UPDATE 07/03/2011: BMW has released a video of the 1M Coupe performing an arc drift on top of the U.S. Bank Tower. This tower stands 1,018 feet tall and is considered as the tallest building in the world with a helipad on it. Check out the video by clicking on the image above!

UPDATE 12/02/2011: Finally, someone is driving the BMW 1-Series M Coupe the way it is suppose to be driven. The only bad news is that all the action takes place in a parking mall and not at a major driving event, but it’s still a start. Hit the jump for the video!

UPDATE 02/13/12: BMW has released a new commercial for the 1-Series M Coupe, showing just how perfectly balanced the car is and offering no compromises in the way the car is built. And to prove that there’s substance behind those words, BMW has come up with a way to show everyone just how "perfectly balanced" the 1-Series M Coupe really is. Check out the commercial after the jump!
