German car tuning company G-POWER pushes BMW 1 Series M Coupe to the limit (Photos)
The BMW 1 series M coupe has been in the news as the youngest and smallest member of the M family. Car enthusiasts will be happy to know that this model has been revamped by G-POWER, and transformed into a whole new bundle of energy packet.
The car has been redesigned with a retuned 3.0L turbocharged inline six. The force to this engine has been revamped by the engineers who have made use of reprogrammed software and enlarged capacity for boost cooling system and flow optimized downpipes. The exhaust system has been replaced with a lightweight titanium exhaust system that helps save about 44 pounds in weight. These modifications of the engine house have resulted in the power out being raised to 429 Hp and 590 Nm of torque.
This power enables the 1 series M coupe modified by G-POWER to reach 0-100 km/h within 4.5 seconds. The car has a top speed of 300 km/h. 20 inch Silverstone wheels, a contrasting decal kit along with a height adjustable G-coil over suspension and a superior braking system with six piston calipers are the other features of this revamped turbocharged car from G-power.

G-POWER 1M Coupe with 435 hp: After the power output enhancement by the G-POWER BMW 1M Coupe is now at eye-level with its big brother the BMW M3
It is not just the “M” in the name of the BMW 1M Coupe that Identifies it as a member of the “M Family” it is the design, as well. The BMW 1M Coupe is closely related to its bigger brother the BMW M3 with Which it shares the same front and real axles. Unfortunately when it comes to the power output figures the BMW 1M Coupe does not play in the same league with the rest of the family. Help is coming from G-POWER with its latest package for the youngest member of the M family. The G-POWER program for the BMW 1M Coupe covers all key components that let it join up with the other M models. Thereby the G-POWER engineering department has used the expertise gained from the development of the G-POWER supercharger system on the BMW 3.0L straight six cylinder engine. After all the ASA supercharger used by G-POWER supercharger for its conceptual system is closely related to the turbocharger used by BMW, since both variants use a centrifugal compressor to build up boost.
Based on this know-how, G-POWER has put together a performance package for the BMW 1M Coupe, Which goes well beyond all electronic output performance enhancements available on the market, and covers hardware components that are directly and Indirectly related to the forced induction. It starts with optimized flow downpipes to reduce the exhaust gas temperature and enlarged to boost capacity for the cooling system so that the operating temperature of the engine is kept at an optimal output level under all circumstances.
Exhaust sides a complete exhaust system made from titanium with 4 carbon or titanium tail pipes provides for a sporty sound, Which can be enhanced up to racing level by a wireless control switch. At the same time the use of the ultralight material Titanium Enables a weight reduction Compared to the stock exhaust system by approx. 20 kg.
The G-POWER power output enhancement is completed by a custom-made software that engine, taking into account the hardware modifications and the individual product variance, defines new parameters for the fuel amount and ignition timing, in addition the boost level is slightly raised.
All the G-POWER engine modifications for the BMW 1M Coupe add up to a power output enhancement from 340 hp / 500 Nm to 435 hp / 590 Nm. So the G-POWER 1M Coupe surpasses its bigger brother the M3 by 15 hp and 195 Nm of torque a giant. Prepared like this the G-POWER 1M Coupe propels itself from standstill to 100 km / h in just 4.5 seconds and the top speed is reached at 300 km / h
Concerning the suspension at first one will notice the 20 20 inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE SILVERSTONE wheels, wrapped with tires from the G-POWER’s technology partner Michelin in the dimensions 255/30 ZR 20 and 295/25 ZR The double spokes, typical for the G-POWER design, highlight the spectacular design of the BMW 1M Coupe. Further improvement of the road handling is realized through the continuously height-adjustable G-POWER coil-over suspension RS with GM1 nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound.
Of course the negative acceleration is in the focus of G-POWER, as well. The perfect cure against the fading effect is a G-POWER Braking System. With its up to six brake pistons and up to 396 mm brake disc diameter, the G-POWER Braking System Enables a Substantially higher brake force than the standard braking system At the sametime, the heat generated due to the braking process can be dissipated more effectively. The G-POWER brake package is completed by brake pads with a larger pad area, higher friction rate as well as metal-coated brake lines. With this set-up, the G-POWER Braking system always provides maximum brake force and the braking point remains precise in any case. In addition the G-POWER ceramic braking system Reduces the unsprung mass by 50% percent, Compared to a system with steel brake discs. Accordingly the cornering and road handling is improved significantly.
