"Today BMW has introduced 130i, the range-topping version of 1-Series. This compact hatchback is powered by the new 258hp magnesium 3.0 straight-six. It outpowers Audi A3 3.2 V6 and Alfa Romeo 147 GTA, both stand at 250hp. According to official figures, performance also eclipses the rivals: 0-60 mph at 5.9 seconds and top speed reaches the electronic limited 155 mph !

BMW said the 130i already lapped Nurburgring in 8 min 35 sec ! For reference, the last generation M5 did that in 8 min 24 sec and the previous Porsche 986 Boxster S timed 8 min 27 sec. The 130i is therefore the fastest family hatch on the market. It virtually saves the need for an M model."

Not too shabby little car.. ;)

also another very interesting Ascari KZ1 with a Alpina tuned E39 M5 engine with an output of 500HP News
