BMW 1-Series M Coupe Out-Laps Competition
Car enthusiasts know all about what makes the BMW 1 Series an impressive ride. With ultimate sporting capabilities, the 1-Series M Coupe is perfect for those adrenaline junkies out there. And Kuni BMW is proud to say that in a recent drag race arranged by Fifth Gear, the M Coupe rose above the competition - by a whole three seconds.
In the recent single-lap race, the 1 Series went up against one of its fiercest competitors: the RS3. Fifth Gear host and racecar driver Tiff Needell drove the BMW while British rally driver Mark Higgins piloted the competition. We should also point out that Higgins recently set a four-wheel lap record around the Isle of Man TT course, adding just another element to the challenge set forth by Fifth Gear.
This isn't the first time these two hot hatches have been set up against each other - and we're certain it's not the last. Both produce an impressive 335-hp each. While the RS3 might prove a bit cumbersome with its all-wheel drive, the rear-wheeled power of the 1 Series came out on top this time around. And, at the end of the day, when asked if he'd rather go home in the BMW, the four-wheel driving champ, Higgins, said, "I'm afraid so."1
This kind of competitive spirit is what continues to push BMW to create the best and fastest luxury cars on the road today. Sporty cars like the 1-Series M Coupe aren't the only cars infused with the expert engineering that BMW is famous for.
