Tuner specialists from Germany OK-Chiptuning have developed a love affair for the late BMW 2 Series M Coupe and thus promise juicy jumps of power.
The highly desirable BMW 1 Series M Coupe is now gone but has not been forgotten – just like any other BMW model that could soon become an iconic property – and the limited edition model that remains highly coveted has been sprung back to life by OK-Chiptuning. Their program includes a power kit for the twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, pushing it from the stock 340 PS (250 kW) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque to the more spectacular 451 PS (332 kW) and 714 Nm (527 lb-ft). All that oomph has been gained from using a custom intercooler and downpipes from Wagner Tuning, an Eisenmann exhaust system and a Sachs clutch.
The tuner has not yet released performance figures, but we expect a bump from the standard 4.9 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) athletics run. Also, the German specialists have removed the speed limiter that traditionally caps the top speed at 155 mph (250 km/h), though without mentioning the new performance. Besides bumping the power, the tuner has also used Schmidt CC-Line 20-inch wheels with 245/30 ZR20 front and 295/25 ZR20 rear tires. Stulistic details include carbon fiber side mirror caps, rear spoiler lip, H&R coilover set and an M Performance steering wheel.
