    The One with muscles

    Purists will be disappointed to learn the M1 Cabrio/Coupe will have to replace the vaunted e46 M3, instead of the legendary e30 M3. This means a six-cylinder engine and a target weight goal at an obese 3300lbs. Still, despite its weight, it promises to be the fastest and most powerful 1-series model. Estimated to do 0-60 in the fives and have the traditional top speed of 156mphs, performance is similar to the 12 year old 3-litre euro-m3.

    Not surprising - even with a 4 cylinder, the M1 wouldn't be light - you can't build a car these days with all the safety features and be under 3000 lbs.

    If it's lighter and smaller than the E46 M3, I'll be happy.Chris
