The BMW 1 Series M Coupé was announced in 2010, and is a high-performance variant in BMW's 1 Series. The car is powered by a 3.0L N54B30 Inline-6 engine, which is also the same one used in the BMW 135i Coupe. The car was named 1 Series M Coupé so that any confusion with the original BMW M1 could be avoided.
The "Orange" Edition was released on June 1st, 2012 for SpeedBoost. The car comes pre-equipped with Amerikon Speedsystems street-tuned parts which makes it able to reach an unmodified top speed of 286 km/h (178 mph).
The BMW 1-Series M Coupe has a stock top speed of 258 km/h (160 mph) which is around average for Class B cars. It has a very strong acceleration and the same goes for its nitrous output. It has a very good and responsive handling as well but due to slight fishtailing it can be twitchy in corners.
For Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape this car can be used as a very good Team Escape vehicle. Because of its narrow size it can easily pass through gaps in roadblocks and due to its strong acceleration it can easily recover speed from impacts. However, since this car is lightweight it cannot take collisions with rhinos properly.
