EVO drives the BMW 1 Series M Coupe prototype – Click above to watch the video after the jump

We're eagerly anticipating the official debut of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe at January's Detroit Auto Show, and moreover, we're lacing up our driving mocs in anticipation of some much-needed seat time. Before the car's official launch, however, the folks at EVO magazine were able to take the 1 Series M prototype for a quick spin, and might we say, we're jealous.

To recap, the 1M will be powered by the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six found in the Z4 sDrive35is with output rated at 340 horsepower. Combine that with a 3,300-pound curb weight, six-speed manual transmission and a seriously beefed up suspension and we have the makings for a truly impressive driving machine.

Follow the jump to watch EVO's Chris Harris take the 1 Series M out on the road, and stay tuned for the official smattering of images and details closer to the car's Detroit debut.
