BMW General Discussion
Sponsored by: AutohausAZ.com
Talk about BMWs in general. Post official news, Bangle flames, or anything else related to BMW.
This thing is going to be a beast. Its got the 3.0L from the 330i thrown in it, and its pushing 258 horses, with this light a car (2890 lb) its going to fly. Im expecting the 0-60 to be in the mid 5 second range. And it IS coming to america, with the price expected to be 25 grand.. it is going to be an amazing car.
Imagine this thing in race trim.. with everything ripped out im sure it could get incredibly light, im guessing it could be in the 2400-2500lb's range, while still being street legal.
BMW should perhaps call the 130i the Goat, because the car follows the philosophy of the car that ignited the muscle-car craze four decades ago. An engine from big car (BMW’s 530i) stuffed into a little car (1-series) equals fun and sales. With 258 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque, the inline six-cylinder should push the 130i to 60 mph in about 6.2 seconds, with the brand-wide fun governor stepping in at 155 mph. When the accelerator isn’t buried in the carpet, the car should get over 30 mpg on the highway. With almost 40,000 1-series sold between the car’s September launch and the end of the year, BMW has decided to bring the 130i to North American shores. Pricing is yet to be determined—figure around $25,000 to start—but the cars should begin arriving in a year or so.
