2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe

2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe

It is said that the 2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe is the poster child for a perfectly balanced car; this may be an understatement. From the second the commercial launched showing it doing doughnuts in a parking lot, it was easy to tell this vehicle would create quite a buzz.

Like the rest of the M line, the 1-Series is dominated by a very muscular look.

  • Honey comb structured grille
  • Overly large air intakes
  • Discreet spoiler lip
  • Quad chrome-tipped tailpipes
  • 19-inch M alloy wheels with Y-spoke design
  • Available in Valencia Orange Metallic, Alpine White and Black Sapphire Metal

The cabin takes a sporty approach yet manages to still be upscale.

  • Sport seats covered in Boston leather with an embossed M logo and orange contrasting stitching
  • Dark Alcantara with orange stitching covers gear shift, handbrake lever, dash and door panels and instrument cluster binnacle
  • Leather M multifunction steering wheel

This is a car made for the performance-minded buyer with precise handling and lightning fast acceleration.

  • 3.0-liter inline-6 delivers 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque
  • Zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds
  • Six-speed manual or automatic transmission
  • Four-wheel independent suspension delivers a smooth ride

Although nicely loaded, the 1-Series M Coupe does offer Premium and Convenience packages for a few more bells and whistles.

  • Optional Harman Kardon® sound system with 1 year subscription to satellite radio
  • Navigation system that includes BMW iDrive electronics interface
  • BMW apps to keep you connected

The 1-Series M Coupe proves that just because a car looks and handles like a sports car does not mean it can’t be as safe as a family sedan.

  • Park distance control
  • Post collision safety system
  • Brake drying
  • Cornering lights
  • Tire-pressure monitoring system

The past three decades of M cars have been described as the ultimate driving machines; the 1-Series M Coupe is no exception.
