New BMW 1M Coupé laps Nordschleife in 8:12

BMW 1 Series M Coupe

Following the release of pics and info on BMW’s new 1 Series M Coupé comes an unverified report that the baby M has lapped the Nürburgring in 8 minutes 12 seconds.

That puts the 1M within 7 seconds of its big brother, the V8 powered E92 M3. It also makes it 10 seconds faster than the old E46 M3. Impressive stuff. Hopeully there’ll be some video footage online soon.
