Dubbed M4 CS (Competition Sport), the high-performance two-door compact is offered in just 60 units priced €132,900 ($151,425), a hefty €40,800 ($46,485) more than the regular M4. Upgrades include an extra 19 PS (19 HP) for a total of 450 PS (444 HP), cutting the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time by 0.1 seconds to 4.0 flat, and the electronically imposed 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed limit has been removed, so the CS tops out at 280 km/h (174 mph).

While this model still isn't as attractive overall as the recently launched M2 Coupe, the M235i remains a very fast compact car, capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds as long as you go for the xDrive Coupe automatic version. Compared to the M2, it's not as quick, though some might argue that the difference is negligible, especially when tuners such as Manhart can bump performance from 326 PS to 430 PS and get peak torque to rise all the way to 592 Nm (436 lb-ft).

Top speed is somewhere north of 300 km/h (186 mph), which can be characterized as more than enough for a car this size. Labs. Owner Takes Delivery Of New BMW M2 In Alpine White.

Russians Cause Mayhem In Drifting BMW 1M

Thanks to its potent twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, rear wheel drive and short wheelbase, it is capable of some serious driving maneuvers. As with many high performance cars, most drivers can't extract everything out of the 1M Coupe but the following owner in Russia is certainly more than capable of handling all 335 hp albeit to the risk of all other road users. Filmed on some packed streets in Russia at night, the 1M driver can be seen channeling their inner Ken Block by performing risky yet impressive driving stunts in the middle of the street, just inches away from other vehicles.
