BMW 1 Series M Coupe flashes us

Read more on:

BMW has revealed a tantalising glimpse of the upcoming 1 Series M Coupe, and we’re officially tantalised.

This sneaky, surreptitious video has the baby 1-er wrapped in some kind of automotive body-bag, with only the heaving cleavage of a bodykitted front wing, alloys and those trademark M Division quad tailpipes on display.

Excited? You should be. Way back in July, M Division boss Kay Segler confirmed he would make a hot 1 Series “in the tradition of the original BMW M3”; an original 200bhp four-cylinder lightweight special, a world away from today’s comically over-endowed 4-litre 400bhp V8 M3.

So does this mean the 1 M Coupe would be a stripped down, lightweight driver’s machine? There’s no official word on spec, but from in-car footage released a few weeks back, it sounds like a snarling straight-six under the bonnet. Other than that, zip.

Until we get more, indulge in this bout of automotive foreplay as BMW mercilessly teases our fizz gland
