Steve Sutcliffe explains the highs and lows of life with the BMW 1M Coupe, and does lots of drifts in Autocar’s long-term review of the “baby-M”.
The 1M is powered by the N54 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 engine. For the 1M, the turbocharger, exhaust system, and ECU have been revised to produce 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, though up to 369 pound-feet are available temporarily in overboost mode. Redline is found at 7000 rpm.
