2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe by H&R Springs

For all of the tuning projects that have been done on the BMW 1-Series M Coupe , it seemed a little surprising that we haven’t heard a whole lot from the popular 1M at the 2011 SEMA Auto Show other than the ’Black Knight’ vehicle that RevoZport was building.

Apparently, a second 1M Coupe has officially booked its attendance in Las Vegas.

This one comes from renowned suspension specialists, H&R Springs, who built a program for the 1M Coupe that centers on a number of high-end performance parts. That’s not to say that they didn’t work on the car’s aesthetics because they did dress it up with some decals bearing the unmistakable M-Series livery to go with some sticky jewel graphics.

To give the car the perfect stance and performance handling of a true M-Series, H&R Springs provided it with its own Sport Suspension set-up that lowered the car by 1.2" on the front and 0.6" on the rear. H&R also added their own Sport Sway Bars on the front (27mm) and rear (23mm) of the sports car. These bars come with forged ends and are made from HF wire, a material that’s unique to the industry because it’s heat treated and shot peened. The last of H&R Springs’ performance parts is the Trak+ Wheel Spacers, installed to perfectly space the wheels and tires in fender wells, and allow for wheel clearance of the big Brembo calipers.

As for contributions made by its contemporaries, the 1M Coupe’s new 19" wheels were provided by BBS and its new Super RS wheels and has been fitted with Continental ExtremeContact DW tires. As for the Brembo brakes, H&R Springs opted to go with the Brembo GT 380mm Big Brake Kit with matching blue calipers from Custom Motorsport.

The fact that its engine is in a twin-turbo, I think it could already give a better speed performance on this race car. Anyway, it is really looking great with its simple detailing and style.

BMW is really now improving on their design! This race car of them is truly looking so great and attractive on its aesthetic design. I’m also impressed that they use an impressive engine for this.

Well, the fact that it is a sports car, I don’t think that its engine could really be good enough on it. I think they should boost it more. Anyway, the exterior of this one is truly very striking on it.

I don’t think that the engine specification of this race car will be good enough for this. Anyway, I must say that I love the wheels of this one, it looks so cool for this race car.

I just noticed that almost all cars of BMW are everything being so identical, the only difference is the design that they were having on its body. Anyway, I should say that it was still impressive for it had a nice engine.

The twin-turbo inline-six engines of this one are absolutely can give a nice speed performance on it, and I must say that I love the simple detailing that they do on their sports car.

BMW is definitely improving today. I just noticed that the race car that they were producing is absolutely looking so awesome, just like this one. However, I don’t think if its engine is good enough for it.

I am hoping that its twin-turbo inline-six engines will be enough for this one, so that it can be performed well just like the other race car. Anyway, I love the aesthetic design of this and even the hygienic body paint of it.
