The BMW 1M Coupe has a little bit particular place within the hearts of BMW lovers. identical to the opposite BMW wearing the number 1 and the letter M on its boot. Understandably so too because the 1M is a small, entrance engine, rear drive handbook beast that has a close to good 50:50 weight distribution, the sort of factor BMW is thought for within the first place. Nevertheless, for some, the usual 340 HP of the 1M are usually not sufficient.
In response to the video uploader, what we’re here’s a BMW 1M Coupe tuned by HPT as much as Stage Three and in a position to develop round 550 HP out of the Three-liter straight six N54 engine underneath the hood. The 2 turbochargers mounted on the usual mill should’ve been modified to acquire such an even bigger quantity of energy however there are not any particulars supplied in regards to the specifics sadly. We are able to additionally assume a brand new ECU tune was thrown within the combine for good measure together with a brand new clutch to deal with all the additional torque, particularly for the reason that 1M Coupe solely got here with a handbook field.
The wing on the boot is borderline loopy however what’s not is the way in which this “Child-M” accelerates. Fortunately, the drag races have been kicked-off from a rolling begin so the prospect of lighting up the rear tires dropped considerably besides, the automotive will be seen skidding at occasions. As for the rivals it faces on this video, we will rely the BMW M4 in addition to a Mercedes-AMG GT S. Whereas we don’t have any information on them, we will assume the M4 was tuned as properly, as its prime velocity was even larger than the 1M’s at 259.21 km/h in comparison with 256.66 km/h. The GT S may’ve been inventory because it ran as much as 255.45 km/h.
Then there’s the Volkswagen Golf R you see in direction of the tip. Whereas coming with the smallest engine of the bunch, being powered by a 2-liter Four-cylinder mill, the Golf 7 R managed to put up a prime velocity of 237 km/h which is fairly darn spectacular. As soon as once more, that’s most probably not a inventory mannequin so don’t anticipate your automotive to succeed in the identical velocity instantly after choosing it up from the dealership.
