BMW 1 Series M Coupe Upgraded By Manhart Racing - 22

Even if BMW 1 Series M Coupe is already a very good and popular car, the Germans from Manhart Racing decided to improve it and now they unveils their own version of this beauty.

As expected, the aggressiveness of the BMW 1M is the main aspect in this project, so it is taken to a new level, both through visual and power upgrades. Thanks to Manhart Racing, the 1 Series M Coupe now sits on 20 inch wheels with 295 tires in the rear. At the rear, the German tuner also provides a redesigned diffuser which fits the overall design.

In addition comes the new front spoiler lip in carbon fiber, but, unfortunately, it is not yet shown to the press. Also the paint job gets some changes, considering that the new 1m comes with some sporty black decals, similar to some of the BMW Performance vehicles.

This car also receives some changes at the inside, which has been designed to match the sporty and raw character of the 1M. BMW Performance bucket seats are now holding tight the driver and passenger through sharp corners.

In order to take the aggressiveness even further, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engine receives 80 more horsepower through extensive modifications to the engine mappings and a new exhaust system. The total output is now measured at 420 horsepower which should take the BMW 1 Series M Coupe from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.

At this time, no pricing has been announced, but expect these significant upgrades to come with a price tag of a few thousand euros.
