A glut of photos (both official and of the spy variety) over the past few months have given us hints of what to expect from the 2011 BMW 1 Series M on the styling front, along with a number of technical details released in October.

Now, as the smallest M car draws closer to its unveiling, BMW has revealed a third teaser video that follows hopeful future customers as they experience the new 1 Series M on a special preview drive.

Last month, BMW revealed that the 'Mgineered' 1 Series will draw power from BMW's twin-turbo 3.0 litre N54 six-cylinder engine, producing 'around' 253kW (340hp).

By comparison, the 'regular' version of the same engine produces 225kW in the previously range-topping 135i.

Thankfully, the 1 Series M will also feature a rear differential and braking package "similar" to the M3, and the only transmission on offer will be a six-speed manual setup.

BMW also confirmed a kerb weight of "about" 1500kg, and its flared guards make it some 80mm wider than the 135i.

No further details have been offered, but for many, confirmation of the long-hoped-for 1 Series M Coupe will be enough for now. With the next-generation 1 Series already in development, it is likely that the 1 Series M will arrive sometime after the debut of the new bodystyle.

BMW has confirmed it will reveal the full skinny on the 1 Series M in December, before giving the new M car its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
