BMW announced plans to put the extreme version of 1-series called 135i supersports also known as Tii into production. The car has all the features to revive the glorious age of 2oo2 models which when it came almost 40 years ago became the undisputed king of compact sports cars and started a class of its own. Like that car, Tii has a lot of stamina in form of a turbocharged inline-six engine developing 326-horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. That is a lot of power in a car with size of a shoe! Combine that with BMW’s classic rear wheel drive handling, and the result is tremendous driving joy. Of course if you can live with its ugly look!
The production version however will reportedly get a smaller engine, 4 cylinder maybe, to keep the price low, which is a shame really. Because the only reason to tolerate this hideous looking car is power and handling, omit them and you left with… S#%@!
