BMW Showcases All-New 1 Series with M Performance Parts

BMW 1MP 6

The all-new BMW 1 Series has only just been revealed and already the M Performance division has go-faster goodies for it. Check it out.

While styling is a touch controversial, there's no mistaking how big an evolution this BMW 1-Series is. With a shift from a traditional rear-wheel drive to a new front-wheel-drive platform, the new 1-Series is said to gain numerous benefits such as increased cabin space. However, the real question is whether it'll have enough performance. We've already seen the new M135i xDrive which features an all-wheel-drive setup as well as a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine, but it doesn't look as imposing as it should.

Introducing the M Performance Parts which have been made available almost immediately after the newcomer was revealed. Take a look at this white unit equipped with some proper aerodynamics. While there's a massive focus on looks, the dynamics are also said to be improved, and in some cases, there's some weight saving.

As you can see, there's plenty of carbon fibre and gloss black aero parts. High-performance brakes have also been added and there is the option of these striking and attractive alloy wheels. One thing we think is really cool are the LED door projectors which show off the M Performance motifs at night. Inside, you can opt for an M Performance steering wheel which features Alcantara grip areas and you can choose either carbon fibre as the trim. Naturally, there are also carbon fibre options for the gear shift paddles.
