from Top Gear website:

Hot 1-Series confirmed
BMW has confirmed the hottest 1-Series yet - the 130i - will be available from September.

The new car will use a tweaked version of BMW's 258bhp lightweight magnesium-alloy six-cylinder engine. Power output is claimed to be 265bhp, and torque is up from 221lb ft to 232lb ft - making it the most powerful BMW six-cylinder engine bar the 3.2-litre unit in the M3.

On the road, this means 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds and a limited top speed of 155mph. Fuel consumption will be 30.7mpg on the combined cycle, while the EU4-compliant powertrain produces 221g/km.

BMW 1-Series buyers will also be able to order active steering for the first time on the 130, which varies the steering ratio depending on road speed.

Prices are set at £24,745 for the 130i SE and £26,515 for the 130i M Sport, which includes a range of 'M' styling accessories for your cash.

Check out your local BMW dealer for more info.
