In an interview today for M-Power, BMW M Division boss, Dr. Kay Segler, revealed more details around the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe model.

What might such a model be like?
This model will be based on the BMW 1 Series Coupé and also be focused on the essentials – the fascination of driving. And it will reflect a love of detail, too.

Will the model be called BMW M1?
We have discussed this point too. BMW M1 is a name with powerful historical associations. So we have decided to follow our second nomenclature method. In the tradition of the BMW Z4 Roadster and of the current models BMW X5 M and X6 M we will put our brand identifier at the end of the name, so our new model will be called the BMW 1 Series M Coupé.

We will be publishing more detailed information before Christmas. And we may release the odd detail beforehand. Wait and see!

Where will the information be provided?
You can register here on M-Power.com. In this way you can be sure not to miss any information on the BMW 1 Series M Coupé.

From when will the BMW 1 Series M Coupé be supplied?
You can expect the first vehicles to be with customers in the first half of 2011.

What else is in store in the near future?
There is a lot more for BMW M fans to look forward to in the second half of 2011 as well. We will be presenting the next generation of the BMW M5 with V8 turbo engine. But let’s talk about the details another time.

    There’s something a bit strange… why would you make a new model, based on old one that’s about to be renewed? I mean, 1 series is about to be redesigned in about 2 years, so why bother? It would be more logical to base it on the new 1 series!

    The general rule that people forget here is that the 1er Sporthatch is replaced first , in 2011. The Coupe replacement will be launched towards the end of 2012, With the Cabrio in 2013. The Coupe will not replaced as the same time as the Sporthatch. The 1M Coupe is not only seen as a grand finale for the E82 it is also a teaser for the F22 1er Coupe in which an M variant will be available also but using a four cylinder instead of a six cylinder engine.

    The 1M is purely a last minute skunkworks project , entirely cost effective due to it’s raiding of the M3 parts bin. It is relatively cost effective especially for a last minute model. We done the exact same thing with the Z4M Coupe It remained in production for a year and a half before being discontinued. The 1M will be the same.

    I like the color combination of the black and the white design on this BMW but I don’t like the orientation of the design on almost of the whole body. I would prefer it a little bit on side, hood and a touch on the bumpers. Well that’s how I wanted it to be if I ever have one of this BMW.
