1 M Coupé drifting

SuckSqueezeBangBlow approves of the BMW 1 M Coupé. The standard hatchback is a pig-ugly rotter, aimed at pretentious folk who want something with a BMW badge and don't care what it looks like, but the addition of a boot and a whacking great M-Power engine undoes all of the woes and creates something rather glorious. The 1 M manages to pull off the impressive feat of actually being a baby M3, as many speculated but few believed.

There's also a lot to be said for marketing a car that's been designed for pure driving dynamics by showing it relentlessly breaking traction and grenading its tyres. And those big CGI structures make this into a weird kind of smoky Takeshi's Castle...
