One of the last of the 6-speed manual driven BMW ‘M’ compact cars.
RM428,888 for the perfectly balanced sports coupe and it is siting with private dealer ready for a new owner. This specialist sports car from BMW has a 2979cc twin turbo engine that will deliver 335bhp @ 5900rpm and give you a head-spinning surge of 450Nm of torque from a low 1500rpm. The slick 6-speed manual…..yes it is a manual driven car will run from 0-100km/h in just 4.9 seconds in the right hands.
A button on the steering wheel switches the car into M Dynamic Mode (MDM), sharpening throttle response instantly when you spot a decent section of road or need to punch in instant overtaking urge. BMW has kept the 1 Series M Coupe’s weight down by extensive use of aluminium, with both front and rear suspension assemblies being built from the stuff. The kerb weight of 1,495kgs translates to a power-to-weight ratio of 227bhp/tonne which makes it better than the E46 M3.
The car comes with a Dynamic Stability Control system that includes anti-slip control function (ASC), brake assistant Dynamic Brake Control (DBC), a drive-off assistant, Cornering Brake Control (CBC), an anti-fading function and a dry brake function is also standard. There is also 2-zone air-conditioning, cruise control, a MP3-capable CD player and 6-speakers.
