Along with the BMW M550d, BMW plans to introduce next year a new M-tuned vehicle: BMW M135i. The information came from a BMW dealership presentation that took place in Netherlands indicating that the M135i will be built on the new 1 Series Hatchback platform.

The M135i gets the power from the familiar 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine, also known as the N54 twin-turbo unit. Where the previous 135i model males 306 horsepower, the M135i version will get a power increase to 320 horsepower.

BMW’s M division will give the car their own treatment, so expect many goodies out of the M division.

BMW M135i will make its debut next summer.

    N54 is normal choice, it’s still new engine, it’s just 5 years old, little upgrade and it’s set for new M.

    i don’t know why you don’t think so, today M is just a badge, in old time M engiens used to be special today they are just – well fantastic but not special

    “Where the previous 135i model males 306 horsepower” – good to know that they are using male horsepower as unit of measurement :-)
