Article by Christian Andrei, on May 15, 2012

The Bmw 335is will no longer be the single awesome car in the Bmw lineup as the Bavarian manufacturer revealed the 2013 135is Coupe and Convertible. Set to arrive in showrooms this fall, the 135is Coupe will be priced at $44,145, while the 135is Convertible will cost 48,845 (including $895 destination and handling).

Both models are powered by the same engine, the TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline-6 engine (N55) featuring Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology delivering 320 hp (+20 hp increase) and 317 lb-ft of torque (+17 lb.ft). The models maintain the same emissions level and MPG ratings of the 135i. The 1359 models will be offered as standard with a 6-Speed manual transmission or an optional 7-Speed Double Clutch Transmission.

Moreover, the models are fitted with a Performance exhaust system, while the engine cooling system has been upgraded in order to match the additional performance output by adding a larger, and more powerful radiator fan and an auxiliary radiator. Furthermore, the vehicles feature a sport suspension incorporating an aluminum double-pivot front suspension and a five-link fully independent rear suspension in lightweight steel.

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) includes a Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) function capable to prevent loss of vehicle control, but at a higher threshold before activation.

Regarding the design, the 135is Coupe / Convertible will be offered with exclusive 18” wheels, unique high-gloss black kidney grill, black mirror caps and special exterior badges in additional to the standard M Sport Package components. The interior features include stainless steel pedals, special interior badges and optional black leather seats with blue stitching for the standard sport seats.
