This piece of news is basically self-expanatory: the BMW 135i Coupe has been crowned Best Sports Car of 2011 as voted by Australia’s Best Cars, for the fourth consecutive year. The baby Bimmer was liked for its excellent engine and good handling characteristics.
“Under the bonnet is a 225 kW twin-turbo, direct-injection, 3.0-litre straight-six, winner of several international design awards going back some years. This is one complete engine, readily willing to send the tachometer needle racing to redline, or (thanks to a broad expanse of torque between 1300 and 5000 rpm), impress with its mid-range muscle. And when it really goes to work, there’s a stirring soundtrack to match,” said the judges.

“BMW has blessed the smart-looking coupe with the ultimate in underpinnings to complement its class-leading performance: near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, rear-wheel-drive, tuned suspension, hi-tech braking system and a comprehensive tyre and wheel combination. Simply put, the BMW 135i Coupe is the complete driver’s car,” they added.
