BMW M135i, is the new small monster from BMW. BMW 1-Series is a real tiny car and 3-lt 320 PS petrol engine is a monster. When you combine 320 PS engine with BMW 1-Series, the result is M135i monster. And I had opportunity to see it in Goodwood Festival of Speed.
As you can see, BMW M135i does not look that different but accelerates to 100 kph (62 mph) in 4,9 seconds with 8-speed automatic gearbox and 5,1 seconds with manual. Why? Because, modern automatic gearboxes shifts faster than a human arm, therefore acceleration numbers are better!
With 8-speed automatic gearbox, BMW M135i is a must have car!
