Our sister-magazine BimmerToday brings us photos of a fully unveiled BMW M135i prototype. The F20 M135i was spotted in a parking lot in Germany and it featured the Estoril Blue paint. Apart from the metallic blue, the car also has black-masked mirror caps and black inserts in the outer air instakes.
At the rear, the apron is painted in Dark Shadow metallic with and chrome tailpipes in the typical arrangement of a 35i model.
The BMW M135i Concept actually debuted this month in Geneva, but the company has refrained to release the power figures of the highly expected M Performance automobile. In the typical BMW marketing lingo, the Munich-based automaker only revealed the engine size, 3.0 liter turbocharged, and power output above 300 horsepower.
The employment of a straight six-cylinder petrol power plant featuring M Performance Twin Power Turbo technology with a power output of more than 300 hp creates the ideal prerequisites for maximum dynamics in the premium compact segment and, in conjunction with rear-wheel drive concept still unique in this vehicle class, ensures unsurpassed driving pleasure so typical of a BMW.
Also according to M, the M135i model includes an M sports braking system perfectly adapted to match the supreme road performance. 18-inch M light alloys with a double spoke design additionally complement the concept car’s sporting character.
