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.

@harry_bright : I agree with you. It really looks like Herbie. Oh I really love that movie.

It looks like Herbie from the movie. It’s kinda cute with the retro stripes all it need is a racing number.

It looks very cool on its black and orange graphics. Moreover, it’s great that it can’t only drive on a race track but also on a public road. By the way, I can say that its output is already satisfying on it.

410 horsepower of this coupe is so stunning for this even the black and orange stripes on its exterior detailing is looking cool and very awesome on it. However, I’m still curious on the other features of it.

Well, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the details especially the racing stripes.I was so amazed on its speed performance. It seems that the turbocharged have boost the output of the car into an amazing figure.

Honestly, I like the speed performance of the car and its styling. The APP Europe seems feel so lucky in tuning up this vehicle. I’m really impressed on the 1-Series starting to its first debut and now it contains the M package.

Well, I have to say that I’m not that impress with the figure performance of the car although this tuning company have added an incredible 70 hp for this production. And its kind of over designed.

That was kind of funny, the 1-Series M Coupe haven’t released yet but there’s already an aftermarket version. IMO, the styling of its exterior is kind of bloat loaded.
