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.

Therefore the range-topping 1-series will have to do with a 135ti-badge on the rear.

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

It?s just been presented in the 3-series coupé and should be able to turn the 1-series into a real cannon ball on wheels...

Torque for this power train is a massive 400 Nm.

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