The last time Manhart Racing worked on a BMW 1-Series M Coupe, they made a program that was impressive. But this time, these guys are really dropping the gloves with the unveiling of their new MH1 S-Biturbo equipped with the Stage 3 tuning program.

Before jumping into the meat and bones of the package, the German tuner didn’t fail in giving the 1-Series M Coupe a nice aerodynamic kit that includes a host of new components, including a hand-made carbon front splitter, a carbon hood with air vents and snap closures, carbon fiber mirror caps, a new rear diffuser, and a new trunk with a ducktail spoiler. Inside, Manhart added MHR Performance bucket seats dressed in Alcantara with matching orange stitching, a new LCD display, a new instrument cluster, and a new speedometer. Finally, Manhart fitted a new coil over suspension system and a new set of 20" AC Schnitzer Type 5 Forged wheels wrapped in Continental-Sport Contact 5 tires.

Now, it’s the engine’s turn. Powered by a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo inline-six cylinder engine, Manhart Racing fitted their Stage 3 tuning program to go with a new sports exhaust system with downpipes and stainless steel Mufflers, and a carbon fiber airbox with carbon piping. On top of that, the tuner also added larger intercoolers, oil coolers, and radiators to the engine, resulting in an increased output of 465 horsepower and 442 lb/ft of torque.

For a nice little sports coupe, packing 465 horsepower is quite a treat, isn’t it?

I’m a fan of BMW and I can say that they really have the creativity and they always impress me all the time.

It’s nice because of the exterior design of this car, especially the front bumper and the wheel of the car is unique than other cars that I can see.

I can’t believe that this innovation of BMW is mostly specked with flaws. If it weren’t for its spacious interior, it won’t be acknowledged and that’s for sure.

This model is totally new at all. I’ve seen this car in early 2010. I think the only difference from what I saw, are these mags. That’s all.

Manhart didn’t fail on giving this coupe the right modification and enhancement.
