BMW car Maker has unveiled new sport car modification for BMW 1 Series Convertible with accentuate efficiency and premium quality. The German automaker has published photos and details with the 2012 BMW 1 Series Convertible, which will also go on sale in the first quarter of 2011.
The new design of the front fascia includes BMW’s innovative Air Curtain that counters turbulence near the wheel arches and so reduces the aerodynamic resistance of the vehicle. New exterior design accents have been incorporated into the headlight and tail light clusters. In the interior, new switches and controls have a more refined look and feel.
Just like the hard top coupe, the 2012 BMW 1 Series Convertible will come fitted with either a 3.0-litre naturally aspirated inline 6 engine producing 230 HP and 200 lb-ft of torque or a 3.0-litre inline-6 with a single twin-scroll turbocharger developing 300 HP and 300 lb-ft of torque. These engines badged as the 128i or the 135i will send power to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT gearbox, with the manual version 135i sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds while the DCT equipped model takes 5.3 seconds.
The standard softtop on 2012 BMW 1-Series Convertible is available in either black or taupe cloth, but it is the optional Moonlight Black version which is unique to the BMW 1-Series Convertible. Interwoven with fine shiny metallic fibers, this distinctive top produces a shimmery metallic silver appearance in sunlight. The visual effect enhances the convertible’s exciting range of nine colors which includes an exclusive hue: Cashmere Silver Metallic.
