The aftermarket specialists at LEIB Engineering have recently unveiled their latest creation, an upgrade package for the impressive 1M Coupe, which, sadly, has left the production line way too early.
The BMW 1M Coupe was very popular with the company’s fans and many of them said that it reminded them of the classic E30 M3, but after producing just over 6,000 units, the carmaker decided to pull the plug on it. Now getting such a model in your garage is very hard but owners of these will be glad to know that a new upgrade package is available, signed by LEIB Engineering.
The model in question has been dressed in grey foil wrap and it has an Alpha-N diffuser, Bilstein sports suspension, carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler, 20-inch Bavaria BC5 Concave wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan Sport tires and much more. The 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder engine is getting a Supersprint sports exhaust system and an optimized ECU, which is allowing the unit to produce 60 HP (44 kW) and 60 Nm of torque (44 lb-ft) more than the standard car, to a total of 400 HP (298 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft). The model can also get larger turbochargers, new cooling and exhaust systems and some other tweaks, which will get its total output to 500 HP (367 kW) and 600 Nm of torque (442 lb-ft). No pricing details have been announced yet.
