BMW To Release New 1 Series Coupe

July 5, 2007

The BMW 1 Series Coupe draws inspiration from its 2002 models of some 40 years ago and is set to go on sale in the United States by the spring of 2008, the automaker reports. A combination of sporty rear-wheel-drive dynamics, agile handling, powerful engines and seating for four, the new coupe series will be available in two versions; the 128i and the 135i. Powered by a 3.0-liter, 230 horsepower inline 6-cyinder engine that generates 200 lb-ft of torque, the 128i Coupe will feature Valvetronic valvetrain management and aluminum/magnesium contruction—core elements of BMW’s EfficientDynamics. The powerful 135i Coupe features BMW’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque from as low as 1,400 rpm. For the 135i Coupe, acceleration from 0-62 mph is accomplished in 5.3 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph. Both engines feature on-demand engine coolant pumps that improve fuel economy and reduce parasitic losses for increased output.
