E92 BMW M3 engine transplanted to a 1 Series

Right from the start, reading the title, you can tell that this whole project is pure madness… in a good way.

I am sure that many dreamed of putting the E92 BMW M3 engine, the loved S65, into their cars, so why not a 1 Series.

To make things run smoothly, along with the 4.0 liter V8 engine also came the 6 speed manual transmission from the E92 BMW M3. I am sure that if the owner would have stopped at that, the BMW 1 Series would have been a very nice project, but once he started, he could not stop.

More mods came in the form of carbon fiber hood, roof and even a trunk lid, in order to reduce overall weight. A custom BPM tune was applied, while Dinan provided an intake. Various other piece also went into the built, like a custom X pipe and a Meisterschaft exhaust system. The end result is a fierce BMW 1 Series, and according to some opinions, another way the 1M could have easily gone.
