Video: Chris Harris rides passenger in BMW 1-Series M Coupe

Chris Harris riding shotgun in BMW 1-Series M Coupe

We’re pretty excited for the 2011 BMW 1-Series M Coupe to hit the roads, which will happen in the first half of 2011. While we won’t get to ride the 1-Series M Coupe anytime soon, our friend Chris Harris had the chance to ride shotgun with the 1-Series M Coupe project manager.

Here is some interesting information you can pick up on this short video:

  • BMW’s M division expects the 1 M Coupe to lap the Nurburgring in 8:07 – 2 seconds off the E92 M3.
  • The division is still working on the sound of the car and hopes to get a bit more aggressive M noise out of the exhaust
  • The set-up of the suspension is generally complete.
  • Power output is expected to be rated around 340-hp.
