Those mourning the recent cessation of BMW 1 M Coupé production will be elated to hear that a successor has been all but confirmed.
Welcome to the first SA road test of the maddest 1 Series yet.
This video concentrates on the flying lap racing driver Deon Joubert set during our track test. With a time of 1:24,81, 1 M Coupé did the same time as the Audi TT RS at 1:24,80, was a second slower than the BMW M3 Frozen Edition and, more importantly, faster than the standard BMW M3’s 1:25,50. For the full road test, get hold of the August issue of CAR.
