If you’re around and about in the UK during the next few weeks, then you might possibly spot BMW’s 1 Series M Coupé on the roads near BMW’s Bracknell HQ. If not then stay tuned during the next few days for first glimpses of the undisguised new baby M-car, showing off its unique burnt orange paintwork regarding which Dr. Kay Segler, CEO of BMW M GmbH, stated last month “This paint will make history”.

The 1 Series M Coupé was in Paris yesterday, prior to its unveiling, and for the first time we can really see what Dr Segler was referring to with that paint colour (rumoured to be called Valencia Orange Metallic, according to bmwblog.com). With such a stunning paint colour, its 340+ bhp straight six turbocharged engine and agile handling, this is already one of the most eagerly anticipated M-cars of the past decade.

We’ll tweet further news on @DriversRepublic when we receive it.
