The long wait endured for the release of the 1-Series M Coupe was far too much to bear, but the array of tuning packages released shortly thereafter have lead to a case of amnesia towards BMW ’s procrastination. No matter how grandiose the sports coupe was at inception, tuning companies are always game to raise the bar. One such company is APP Europe. The German tuner has updated both the exterior and the interior of the 1-Series M Coupe, as well as provided an extra 70 HP to satiate our rubber burning desires.
The BMW’s 340 HP twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine was given the added boost with larger intercoolers and a lightweight titanium exhaust system with a new muffler inlet pipe, Metallkats with larger diameter. These features bring the output up to 410 HP. The added snarl gets tamed using a new braking system with 6 piston calipers on the front axle and 4 piston calipers on the rear axle. Weight reduction and traction are added with ATS super light wheel rims and a set of P Zero tires by Pirelli.
The look of the car is altered with a cool white exterior paint job combined with black and orange stripes. THe interio is also modified with the use of lightweight seats covered in BMW-Performance artificial leather and a BMW-Performance steering wheel with display.
The full conversion is priced out at €14,000 or about $20,000 at the current exchange rates.
