Time trials? Qualifying? Don't waste your time! We'll make sure that your 1 series is always in pole position. With up to 146 kW/198 bhp available even from the 114i. This combines with a hefty dose of extra torque that brings the total up to 283 Newton meters (standard: 180 Nm). Isaac Newton would have rejoiced. You too can rejoice in the engine's free-revving nature, although there's no need to - certainly not with our 1 series diesel variants, which pump out up to 180 kW/245 bhp and 505 Nm (125d).
As one car magazine accurately summed up after a group test including the VW Golf and other class contenders: "Tipping the rear of the car off the pylons on the slalom course gives you a real thrill”. For this reason, we have devoted ourselves with particular commitment to the only rear-wheel drive car in the compact class. What's on offer for you? Pure driving pleasure.
And the wonderful feeling of driving a truly special car. A BMW 1 series by noelle motors
