The new BMW 1 Series M Coupe proves its capabilities at Hockenheim

The German people from Sport Auto decided to test the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe alongside few other models somewhere in Germany, at the Hockenheim track to be more exactly. The journalists tested a bunch of new vehicles from three big German manufacturers: BMW, Audi and Porsche.

They also did a comparison between the BMW E92 M3 ZCP DCT and the smallest M model in the range, of course, the new 1 Series M Coupe. I don’t know if you will believe but the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe actually managed to get a better time on the Hockenheim circuit.

It managed to get a lap time of 1:14.1 being just 0.1 second faster than the BMW E92 M3 ZCP DCT. It’s true that there is not a very big gap between the Bavarian models but let’s face it, the smaller proved to be the better this time, most probably due to its lower total mass.
