Official: G-Power BMW 1M Coupe

G-Power BMW 1M Coupe

G-Power released a program for the BMW 1M Coupe. BMW’s smallest M-Division receives a set of power upgrades and a few suspension components to bring it up to the same standard as the outgoing E92 BMW M3.

To start with performance upgrades, the BMW 3.0 liter straight six cylinder engine gets a G-Power ASA supercharger, flow optimized downpipes, a titanium exhaust system with titanium or carbon end tips and a wireless control switch to adjust the volume! Weight reduction for the new exhaust system is 20kg.

To finish off the upgrades, a custom engine software map has been developed. It optimises the hardware modifications and modifies the fuel amount and ignition timing, increasing boost level slightly. Modifications are enough to increase power by 95hp and 90Nm. Total figures are now 435hp at 6,000rpm and 590Nm at 1,500rpm.

Performance figures are estimated at 4.5 seconds 0 to 100km/h and a top speed of 300km/h. The G-Power 1M Coupe actually surpasses the BMW M3 now by 15hp and 195Nm of torque!

Wheels are G-Power Silverstone wheels with Michelin rubber. Dimensions are 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and 295/25 ZR 20 at the rear. G-Power’s suspension upgrades include GM1-RS height-adjustable coil-over suspension with nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound. G-Power also fit a 396mm six piston brake kit, a ceramic option is also available.

The power upgrades are named Bi-Tronik V3 and cost 10,238 euros plus installation costs. The 20 inch Silverstone wheel set with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres cost 4,474.78 euros, the coilover kit costs 1,721 euros. Braking systems vary from 6,466.38 euros and 4,785.71 euros for the front and rear steel brake kit respectively and 14,460.50 and 11,778.15 euros for the ceramics respectively.
