      espite being born in a digital age and being equipped with many digital tools, the 1M retains that true analogue feel that the old school motoring enthusiast still craves. BMW fully succeeded in delivering this.

We live in an era of hands free dialling, touch screen control and flappy paddles. The 1M with its 6 speed manual gearbox was a joy for the true petrol head, who loves real driving rather than switching to auto pilot.


Long term Motorsport owners and enthusiasts were highly cynical of a turbo charged M car, however once behind the wheel and when using a heavy right foot, the purist’s doubts quickly dissolve. This breathed on N54T engine delivered 335 bhp and when full throttle settings are used and all 6 gear ratios worked to their optimum, the 1M becomes a near-perfectly balanced true hooligan’s delight.  Twin staged turbo charging means a staggering torque figure of 450 Nm, meaning this Jekyll and Hyde engine will pull itself along at 1100rpm and can be very docile.

Suspension was kept simple, with no EDC offered as an option. Incredible grip through the 19”rims and staggered 245 front and 265 rear tyres give the 1M go cart style handling.
