A power upgrade for the new BMW 1M Coupe has been recently revealed by Hartge, making the German car even more powerful.
After other aftermarket specialists took on what is best known as a replacement to the classic E30 M3 among BMW fanatics, the BMW specialty tuner Hartge’s turn just came up, and rather than fitting the powerful German model with a new aerodynamic body kit, to make it uglier by adding larger bumpers, a rear wing, new side skirts and large rims, the 1M Coupe is being offered with a power boost, more than enough to satisfy the needs of owners.
According to Hartge, the BMW 1M Coupe is offered with dual round tail pipes, 80 mm in diameter, stainless steel rear silencer and an upgraded ECU, which is making the standard 3.0 liter twin-turbo engine to develop a total output of 401 horsepower and 530 Nm of torque (391 lb-ft), compared to the standard 340 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque (369 lb-ft). Hartge says that the BMW 1M Coupe can do the 0 to 200 km/h sprint (124 mph) in just 11.34 seconds, which is actually 2.18 seconds faster than the standard version of the car. Besides the power boost, the 1M Coupe can also be ordered with 30 mm lowering sports springs, aluminum pedals, boot lid spoiler, roof spoiler and the company’s floor mats in black velour.
