BMW is readying a new hot hatch, the 135ti. (AUTOMEDIA)

Munich would love to call the car M1 - but that would take away the glory from the legendary 1970's M1 supercar.

Under the bonnet will be BMW's sophisticated 3.0-litre turbo-engine delivering no less than 225kW!

Torque for this power train is a massive 400 Nm.

Expect a 0-100 km/h sprint of about five seconds.
