Oh, here's a fun proposition.
BMW 1 Series, that little guy, in an M configuration.
Now, what's unusual here is this is the first M car that ever done.
It doesn't have a special purpose built handmade M engine.
They just borrowed up a 3 L twin scroll turbo like you might find in the Z435iS.
That motor is good for 335 horsepower and 332 foot-pounds of torque.
And this little guy that means 0 to 60 in 4.7 or so plus this retains the overboost function of that motor and some other cars, which means for short blast at wide open throttle you get the torque up to 369 foot-pounds I think.
So that makes for some interesting dynamics.
Speaking of dynamics, they've worked over the rear-end, the suspension, all of the areas tuning to make sure you can have a decent chance of keeping it right side up, 1 gearbox.
Thank you God, it's a 6P manual and that's it.
No fancy computerize blah, blah.
Not the one.
It doesn't sense.
Lots of work done to the body, and to my eye, it's a good thing.
Once [unk] it's a little bit pitiful to me especially this big saggy, Saab sill line down here.
I hate that, but now my eyes take it away from that by this good-looking fender bulges front rear and some really great-looking really kind of retro-style BMW BBS looking wheel.
This guy is gonna run about $47,000 base.
They're only gonna make 2700 out them, so get ready and get in line.
