BMW have denied for years and years that there would be an X1 M sport car. As it stands at the moment they haven’t confirmed that there will be one but they failed to deny the recent rumours of the M performance X1.
According to Jörg Bartels, the M performance car sales boss; BMW are constantly looking through the model ranges to see which vehicles fit their strategy and can therefore be developed into a performance car (M Sport).
“I will say again what the boss of BMW M has stated in the past – all BMWs are eligible for an M model. We will see how Audi and Mercedes go with that.” This is what Bartels had to say about the concept of a BMW X1M.
A performance version of the X1 would compete directly with the Audi RS Q3 and Mercedes-Benz GLA45 AMG. So, we’ll keep an eye out for it! What do you think Is this the next big thing for BMW?
