BMW 1M Coupe: Chris Harris rides shotgun

by Alex

Most of the people cannot help wondering every time we see Chris Harris inside a car, as to how this dude managed to score a job like that. Chris Harris gets paid to drive the fastest and most beautiful super sports sedans on the planet. Did you ever think that even he could hate his job?

Chris Harris was present at the Ascari race track in Spain, during the launch of the BMW M3 GTS. Along with a number of other stormed auto journalists, Chris Haris was also given a treat. What makes this treat a treat of a lifetime to Haris is an opportunity to ride shotgun, a prototype version of the new BMW 1M Coupe that traces its direct lineage to the Bavarian automaker’s M line of sports cars, with Frank Isenberg. Frank Isenbers is the BMW Driver Training’s chief in charge on board. The BMW 1M Coupe is an off-shoot of BMW’s 1-Series.

As Harris tried to gently probe Isenberg sitting in the passenger seat, to divulge the specifications of the beast lurking underneath the hood of the 1M, Isenberg remained noncommittal and refused the question by interrupting and saying, “Listen to it.” Even though Harris and the rest of the auto scribes were not provided with the full inside information, automobile experts and analysts believe that an N54 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six engine might be powering the 1M sports Coupe. The NS4 3.0 twin-turbocharged engine churns out about 340 HP to power the coupe.

Chris Harris however has a tendency to talk a lot more when behind the wheel than what he was up to while driving the shotgun. The man still carries a clear idea of his cars and the majority of things that he observed while Isenberg steered the car came out to be true.
