One of the best cars ever created by BMW that stood the test of time is the one-and-only 1M Coupe, an exceptional piece of German engineering, ahead of its time and coming with impressive aerodynamics and sheer performance under the hood.
The BMW 1M Coupe seen below is one of the 6,309 examples created just before the arrival of the M2 Coupe on the market, and features some aftermarket parts that increase its performance under the hood. It was also seen in Monaco a couple of days ago, revving its engine in style and turning heads all around.
This particular BMW 1M Coupe has a Swiss license plate and has been fitted with a new body kit, which is mostly distinguishable at the rear end. On top of that, it also wears an impressive body wrap and some black wheels.
The car`s main highlight is the bespoke exhaust system at the rear which increases the car`s engine soundtrack; it might also increase its stock power and torque as well. However, we do not have any details concerning the new power. However, judging by the video below, we can estimate more than the stock power. We let you decide how much it is over the factory output!
As a reminder, the BMW 1M Coupe was produced between 2004 and 2013 replacing the 3-Series Compact and becoming the company`s “smallest and least expensive vehicle in the BMW range.”
It also came with four body styles, such as: 3-door hatchback (E81 model), 5-door hatchback (E87 model), 2-door coupe (E82 model) and 2-door convertible (E88 model). The 3- and 5-door hatchbacks were later on replaced by the F20 and F21 in 2012, while the E82 Coupe and E88 Convertible were replaced by the 2-Series F22 and F23, starting with 2013.
As for engine lineup, the BMW 1M Coupe came with both naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines, with four-cylinder diesel and four- and six-cylinder petrol configurations.
The below BMW 1M Coupe is equipped with the famous 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine, developing 335 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, enabling a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, at a topping of 250 km/h.
