I can admit the new BMW 1 Series Coupé is pure class and beauty because I was one of those who just did not like its predecessor. At first glance you probably think this is a chic’s car but NO! do not be fooled I was watching TOP Gear a few weeks ago and this beast out sprinted a Porsher Carrera… need I say more?
So what is the fuss all about you ask? Well it seems like BMW is going back in time when it was the king of the road with this new 1 Series Coupé. The new BMW 1 Series Coupé now radiates an even more intense sense of powerful agility and urban athleticism, with its re-designed front apron and new Xenon headlights integrated into the Corona rings. The 1 Series Coupé also comes with an M sport package, the sport package could have been created for the BMW 1 Series Coupé. The optional M sport chassis is 15 mm closer to the ground and supplies precise feedback in every corner while the M light-alloy wheels keep the BMW 1 Series Coupé firmly on course. It has powerfully shaped side skirts together with front and rear aprons to create an exclusive and exciting exterior for the BMW 135i. Inside the BMW has a three-spoke sports steering wheel with an option for Paddle Switches for automatic transmission, you have a large selection of interior trip from chrome to wood and a great wealth of comfort from it leather seats.
The BMW 1 Series Coupé rangers from the 120d to the sensational 135i A which has an optional 7-speed automatic transmission. When it comes to muscle power well the 6-cylinder have been inspiring international juries and ambitious drivers all over the world. It has a Twin Scroll turbocharger, Valvetronic and direct petrol injection which enhances performance radically to 225 kW with 400 Nm in the BMW 135i. Impressive smoothness and top performance are also what characterise the straight 6-cylinder engines in the BMW 125i. The use of lightweight components makes it possible to achieve a unique combination of maximum performance capacity and remarkable economy. The BMW 125i puts in a convincing performance with a top speed of 245 km/h at 160 kW and an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds. And all this at a fuel consumption level of just 8.9 l/100 km what more with you want from a car that has a great mixture of beauty and brute force performance?
