With the recent raising of the “sold out” sign in the window of all BMW 1 Series M Coupe models everywhere, the impressive sports car is grabbing even more headlines.
Even at this point, German tuner AC Schnitzer isn’t very impressed with what it brings to the table. This is where they showcase what they’re capable of.
They’ve tweaked a few things about the exterior, made some minor changes to the interior and then AC Schnitzer went on to the dynamics.
Essentially, the 3.0 liter straight six turbocharged engine remains the same. Thanks to a revised intake, exhaust and ECU remap the performance change is here.
The standard trim’s 340 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque gets converted to 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque.
While the ECU remap is still cooked up, the AC Schnitzer ACS1 BMW 1 Series M Coupe loses the standard electronic speed limiter.
That’s how the sporty little coupe is now capable of hitting 186 mph and getting from 0 to 62 in just 4.7 seconds.
With the newly added power, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe gets a few other changes made to the bits that keep the car on the road.
A stiffer suspension is available, wider yet lighter alloy wheels go on and a new tire setup polishes off the final details.
You can no longer buy a new one, but if you’re looking to tart up your very own BMW 1 Series M Coupe, AC Schnitzer’s product seems like the best way to go.
