Thanks to 1addicts.com and Autoblog.com. They have provided the car community with real photos of the new 1 series. Pictured is the 135i, the 6 Cylinder Twin Turbo car. Said to go 0-62 in 5.3 seconds, this car really isn't the best looking out there. The lines are a bit odd, the front end is really not too beautiful. But the interior looks quite good, and the car as a package will be hard to compete with.
Where else can you get 300 hp and 300 ft lbs. of torque in a car like this? Not to mention the potential already seen in the 335i in basically the same package.
With BMW re-entering this small car segment, other automakers will soon follow. I hope the 1 series does well because it will only spark Cadillac to follow the same market, and create a true competitor under the CTS. It's just too bad we can't get those diesels.
