    M-car chronology - Quick and neat two page picture data panel of every BMW M car ever made

    Here is a nice and neat overview by Autocar of every BMW M car ever made. From the very first M car, the M1 in 1979, to the newest F10 M5 and upcoming next generation M3. The data panels give a picture of the car, the year it was introduced, horsepower, and a quick little synopsis. Very handy as a quick M reference guide and also cool to see the evolution of the cars over M's history. Autocar even manages to correctly identify the 1M as a parts bin M car.

    Data panel below, enjoy.

    I like it. Short and sweet. Stuff we already know, but still good to see to remind us of why we love BMW.

    What is your hatred towards the 1M? Lol.....We all know it's a parts bin car, no one denies that, but what does that matter when the car as a whole is the best M car put out in years...multiple reviews state this including Chris Harris who I believe ownes an e90 M3. Why don't you quote the rest of the description on the 1M calling it the hero of the modern day m cars....(yes, this includes your beloved, bloated M3) their words))....LOL....

    I don't hate it. I think it is a great drivers car. I don't think it's an M car that's all. Doesn't mean it's some pile of junk.

    And when it comes to the 1M and N54 I consider Chris Harris a retard.

    Break into the 3s 0-60? This is a pointless figure. The disparity between what is stated here, and the best time for an M3 for example shows this. The e90 M3 w/DSG already pulled a 3.9s 0-60 - while this chart claims 4.8s. Again, it's a pointless, traction dependant (esp. w/ RWD) number. 5-60 makes more sense, or 60-100, etc...

    Awesome chart regardless of all.
