BMW 1 Series M Coupe
The BMW 1 Series M was a sort of Frankenstein type project that the company worked on just for fun perhaps not realizing that the 1 M may have become one of the best cars BMW has made in recent memory. BMW took the standard 1 Series coupe, and made some tweaks to turn the smallest car in BMW s lineup into a complete animal. The wheel arches are flared, the car is slightly lowered, there s a straight six engine at the front, a manual gearbox in the middle, and drive goes to the back, observes TopGear s Jeremy Clarkson. It s made of leftovers. The door mirrors are from the current M3; the rear axle is from the old one; the engine is from a Z4. It s a recipe that shouldn t work, but it does.
