The BMW 1 series coupe was slated to be unveiled at the 2007 Frankfurt motor show with North American production penned for October of the same year.
The 128i featured a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter straight-six engine laying down 230 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. The more powerful 135i came with the same engine, but with a turbocharger boosting power to 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.
With the light and adequate powered 1 series coupe in place, it seemed the spirit of the original M3 was being resurrected, which was good news to many BMW fans.
The car was no slouch either, producing 5.3 second 0-60 mph times with a 155 mph top speed in 135i trim.
At the time, BMW stated that no 1M version of the car would be produced, only to change their minds to enthusiast’s delight.
