Another day, another tuning package for the coveted BMW 1-Series M Coupe . This tiny sports coupe has taken the tuning world by storm and German tuner A-workx is its next victim.
The new tuning package for BMW ’s baby model comes packed with a bunch of upgrades, none more impressive than the engine modification. The 1-Series M Coupe’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six has been revamped with a large intercooler, a high performance, modified oil cooler, engine oil and mapping, a new air filter, and a new exhaust system from Akrapovic. These changes bump the output from the standard 335 HP at 5,900 rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm to 450 HP and 405 lb-ft of torque.
The package also includes a new KW suspension system to handle the added power and a new set of 19" ultra-light forged wheels that are 33 lbs lighter than the standard wheels to increase performance. There is also a modified braking system that includes sport brake pads, stainless steel brake lines, and racing brake fluid. The last piece of the puzzle is a new carbon fiber roof that is about 12 lbs lighter than the standard and helps lower the center of gravity of the vehicle.
