The boys at G-Power have given BMW’s pocket rocket, the 1M Coupé, a poke under the bonnet. The tuning programme starts off with new engine software, a bigger capacity for the boost cooling system and flow-optimising downpipes for lowering exhaust gas temperature.
G-Power has also swapped the stock exhaust system with one made from titanium which is 20 percent lighter. The exhaust system ends with four carbon or titanium tailpipes.
The result is a healthy increase from the standard 253kW (340hp/344PS) to 324kW (435hp/441PS). Similarly, torque figure is also wound up from 500Nm (368 lb-ft) to 590Nm (435lb-ft). This is enough to sling shot the BMW 1M Coupé from a standstill to 100km/h (0-62mph) is 4.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 300km/h (186mph). That’s 0.3 seconds faster than a stock BMW M3 Coupé!’
To reign in those speeds, G-Power’s Braking System with up to six brake pistons and up to 396mm brake disc diameter are fitted. The G-Power 1M Coupé rolls on 20-inch white painted G-Power Silverstone alloys with Michelin tyres.
