BMW has unveiled the first video of the future 1-Series M Coupe. Of course, the video does not show much of the vehicle as it is heavily camouflaged, but BMW has promised that the final product would be worth waiting for.

As previously reported, the future car will not be called the M1. That name will remain reserved in history by the original M1 that debuted thirty years ago. What will the name of the car be? Well, as Dr. Kay Segler, CEO BMW M GmbH, narrates the video he leaves out that piece of information. However, he did say it would be built in limited numbers.

The 1-series M will probably follow along the engine lines of the 135i producing 306hp. It will feature a central duct, brake air ducts, an additional two ducts on the bonnet, two air intakes on the front wings for a typical M look, and the bar that incorporates the side indicator light. It will also have widened fenders, integrated duckbill trunk spoiler, upgraded M wheels, and large brakes with cross-drilled rotors.

I’ve never been impressed with BMW interiors...they all seem dated back to the 90s. I sat in a friend’s ’09 3-series, and I felt like I went back in time. I know function over form, but still, make some effort to look new and exciting.

Depends on what you consider "overpriced" to be. It’s the handling that will win people over. The M cars have speed aplenty, but they are all about handling.

I love this car. it’s so euro-awkward-chic. It is the most Euro of BMW’s lineup today. Almost french-looking.
