High-Powered BMW 1 Series M Confirmed for Next Year; But Won't Get M Badge

BMW's M product boss Dr. Kay Segler has confirmed that the M-tuned BMW 1 Series will arrive in the Spring of 2011. Much discussed and repeatedly captured by spy photographers (often testing on Germany's Nürburgring) the will not, however, get the M1 badge. The reason for this, of course, is due to the original M1 exotic – meaning that the M1 badge will be either retired or used only for an appropriate successor to the original.

Based on the 135, it is expected to use a version of the turbocharged six-cylinder to make a around 350-hp. Other upgrades are sure to include a stiffer and lower suspension suspension, reduced weight, some nice M aerodynamics and interior features plus a dual-clutch transmission and more track-oriented dynamic stability control program.

With a 2011 due date, we expect to see the M-tuned 1 Series shown at either the Paris Auto Show this Fall, of the LA Auto Show in December.
