Video: BMW 1-series M Coupe top speed run

What's the top speed of our BMW 1-series M Coupe long termer? Autobahn run video here

Back in June we took our BMW 1-series M Coupe long termer to the Nurburgring. It was staff writer Stephen Dobie and film-maker Sam Riley's transport for the 2011 N24 endurance race, and put in sterling service at eating up long distance miles and being entertaining on a sneaky lap of the Nordschleife, too.

But the 1M's best moment of trip came on the drive home, a chance to open the taps and see just how fast it would go on a piece of derestricted Autobahn. Check out some video footage of the run above.

Read the full story of the 1M's trip in evo Issue 161, on sale Weds August 17. Read a blog on Dobie's Autobahn exploits here.
