    I was turning of the M6 onto the A14 and had a BMW 1M in front of me. I knew nothing about this car so decided to try and keep up. We both hit the gas at about the same time and the 1M left me for dead. I had to check the hand brake wasn't on. It has a bit of a naff name (1M sounds like something you might buy in Staples) but by Christ it shifted.

    I had to find out more about this car so googled it. I found a top gear review where it out-drags a Lotus evora and a Porsche, now I understand what happened. What a machine!!!!! I've pitted my car against many different BMW's on the track and held my own, the 1M is in a different league.

    If only the roof came off.
