BMW has repeatedly denied any plans of doing an M version of the 1-Series that would most likely be known as the M1 – however, teasers, rumors and spy shots of the car keep popping up on the web. The latest spy shots by Bridge to Gantry show a heavily modified 1-Series hitting up the Nurburgring (we also have a short 9 second video posted after the jump).
Last we heard anything, it was reported that BMW has no plans to do an M version of the 1-Series but you can definitely expect something like the 135is like the 335is we saw at the 2010 New York Auto Show.
Only time will tell – but the way we think of it if BMW can do an M version of the X5 and X6, they can definitely justify an M version of the 1-Series
