It’s finally time. The infamous German tuner G-Power has finally unveiled the makeover they setup for the BMW 1 Series M Coupe.
The most exciting car BMW made during our time is finally getting an upgrade package from one of the most aggressive tuners out there.
From the outside, the changes don’t showoff the way the underpinnings have been treated. So far, no complaints have appeared because of this.
Just a few decals have been used and they actually look like tribal paint African warriors would quickly put on before hitting the fight.
And boy can this white African fight. The 3.0 liter straight six twin-turbocharged engine can now flex its muscles beyond the M3’s capabilities.
According to G-Power it’s now capable of pushing out 435 horsepower and 435 lb-ft of torque. This was achieved using reshaped pipes, titanium exhaust and an ECU remap.
The reshaped exhaust, the special material used in particular lost some weight. 44 lbs have been dropped and there’s more to consider.
In order to make sure you keep the car in check G-Power tuning fitted 20 Silverstone alloys with Michelin sports tires.
Underneath those enormous wheels G-Power used new brakes with six piston calipers and enormous 396 mm rotors up front.
At this point the overall change is easy to spot. Going from 0 to 62 mph takes no more than 4.5 seconds, with the top speed going as far as 186 mph.
This should be one wild ride and it’s obvious that G-Power didn’t disappoint. We weren’t expecting it but the 1 Series is such a favorite of the crowd it’s easy to get trapped working on it.
