We’ve already seen a tuning package for the BMW 1-Series M Coupe, but whereas the "Clockwork Orange" was made exclusively for one client, this latest package from TechTec will be the first offered to the general public.

BMW’s little sports car already comes with a new twin-turbocharged, all-aluminum, 3.0-liter inline-6 engine that delivers total of 335 HP, but German tuner, TechTec, has reworked that engine to come up with three different power stages. The first stage will bring the pony power up to 380 HP and the peak torque to 427 lb-ft, all for 1,000 euro (about $1,4000 at the current rates). Throw down another 1,500 euro (about $2,100 at the current rates) and that power increase will jump by 20 to 400 HP, but at this point, TechTec would also recommend that the buyer gets their upgraded air cooler for another 800 euro (about $1,120 at the current rates).

The third and final stage for the BMW 1-Series M Coupe will boost power all the way up to 450 HP, allowing the BMW to sprint from 0-60 mph in an estimated 4.1 seconds. This is also accomplished due to the fact that the tuner removed the top speed limiter, bringing the top speed up to 186 mph. Additional throaty growls from the M Coupe can be attained with a new titanium exhaust system from Akrapovic and handling can also be improved with the club sport-suspension by KW, both offered by TechTec.

For comparison’s sake, the BMW 1-Series M Coupe by TechTec lapped the Hockenheim circuit in 1:13:59, whereas the standard 1-Series M Coupe reportedly did it in 1:14.1 and the BMW M3 followed at 1:14.2. It’s not a tremendous difference, but if that slight lead will get the driver’s juices flowing then the top version of the TechTec package is the way to go.

People would thought that its better to buy it on a warehouse but the problem here is the direct access inside. I know that agents were the only authorized persons to sell it otherwise, call a friend from the marketing and asked them to purchase it for you.

So that means Cayman S has the best record to date? Well, let us check on its components and maybe you were right, there were some that exceeded our expectation.

This is really a cool take on the 1-Series M Coupe. But I would agree with some of the observations that it look somewhat like that of a muscle car.

This one looks extremely sporty. Good work for the TechTec. They really has done a great tuning at BMW M Coupe.

I am definitely all preps for the look of this one. But the thing that I would really want to see is the performance. From the specs alone, I would say that this is very promising.

@luke franks yeah, looks a bit like the Camaro to me. But it does have its own unique features. And since this is the M Coupe, we can pretty much expect that it would be really cool.

Wow, this one actually looks more like a muscle car rather than a coupe. I really like how they did thins one, especially the front, really looks very aggressive.

Actually,the design and features looks good! This one is really appropriate in a car racing because of it’s stunning looks. I think this BMW will be popular to all car racers!.. Nice job to BMW!

Although the boost figure performance of this car is quite impressive. I’d still say that buying a car in the warehouse is different when you bought it in an aftermarket company. It warehouse car makes it more special.

Just recently, this car have made a record in the Nurburgring track and it hit a time of 8:15. Well, some disagree for the heavy Cayman S makes a time record of 7:56.
