Now that we know the specs of the upcoming high-performance compact coupe M235i, we can take a look at the car testing on the highway with more peace of mind.

The car that is supposed to replace the E82 1 Series Coupe in the US was just spotted driving calmly on a German autobahn. Even though it is heavily camouflaged, we already know how it's going to look, thanks to some spyshots taken a while back, at a BMW photo shoot.

Now we also know that the first models to hit the market will be the 220i and the 220d next to the M235i. The 220i will use the 2-liter, 4-cylinder 184 HP and 270 Nm (200 lb-ft) of torque engine from the 320i and 420i models, whilst the 420d will be going with the 2-liter diesel unit that produces 184 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque.

The official release is expected to take place in November or early 2014 and sales will begin somewhere around March next year.
