Default 600hp BMW 1 M Coupé on the way



Quote:
What's the news?
German tuner G-Power has created another monstrously powerful BMW with its adaptation of the 1 Series M Coupé. Called the G1 V8 Hurricane RS, the modified 1 Series features some significant differences from the standard model.


Exterior
The new carbon-fibre bonnet houses an M3-inspired power dome and air vent arrangement; and round the back you'll spot a similarly lightweight boot lip to reduce lift. Massive 20-inch 'Silverstone Diamond' alloy wheels are wrapped in high-performance Michelins to help keep this car on the road.


Interior
Inside, a bespoke combination of leather and Alcantara has been fitted; with G-Power having reshaped the standard seat cushions.


Mechanicals
Under the bonnet is where you'll find this car's party piece. There's the V8 unit from the M3, nestled alongside a specially made supercharger, together creating a whopping 600hp and 580Nm of torque. Combined with a dual-clutch gearbox and stainless steel exhaust system, the G1 will get from 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds and onto a top speed of 205mph.

To help drivers in the bends with all this power, specially designed suspension and massive 396mm ceramic brakes with six piston callipers have been fitted.


Anything else?
There are two things really stopping this from adorning every street in the land. The first is the fact that G-Power is only making 30 examples; and the second is that it'll set you back a substantial about £112,000 (€141,000).

Created to celebrate 30 years of G-Power, the G1 aims to be the world's fastest version of this BMW; a feat G-Power has managed five times before with the likes of the M3, M5 and M6.

should just mod the M3 as about same weight and larger frame. It's already designed for the V8

205mph out of 600hp in a car that looks like that?

For starters, they already sell superchargers for an M3. The car you're talking about already exists.



Further, again with your ridiculous logic...

Because a larger/heavier frame is necessarily what you want in your sportscar?

Not everyone wants a bigger car. It's because of those views that most of our cars are overweight and ****ty these days.

Bigger = Better(!)

The 1-based car will be smaller, lighter, and faster than a supercharged M3.

You're like a broken record on your 3 series > 1 series opinion. Not everyone wants a bigger, heavier car. Get over it.

The weight difference is marginal. The resale value is significant as most would choose the M3 and cost difference is also marginal when bought new.
Substantial differences in components and suspension and strength in M3.

M3 Not really much bigger, just better

I'd like to know how fat those rear tires are. You'd probably need to drive around on slicks to get any kind of traction. Sounds like a super fun car, but really really pricey.

And 600hp is what you want in a sports car? When your talking about those power levels it's less about driving and more about penis measuring.

"We cannot achieve so much with such small penis, but you American wow, penis so big, so big penis!"

205mph in a 1 series doesn't sound particularly safe, if it does actually go that fast.

By that logic... a Z4 with a fixed-position hard top might be a better choice yet, with only two seats... engine swaps making power output equal.

Maybe I missed something, but BMW limited 1M sales, there are less than 1000 in the US. Take a look for a used one, they sell for well over $50k. IMO the interiors look fantastic, and I can look past the cat belly, so I really wish I'd picked one up when they were new.

The 1m was a really well done car for BMW. Flairs, good power, and real LSD. Im not sure why they decided to limit them. A 1M hatch would be delightfull.

LOL - you're an idiot. I love the continued blanket generalizations. Guess what? My 1er's never been in the shop other than oil changes. I've had almost ALL of my Subarus in the shop for one thing or another.

Those ridiculous fender flares really enhance the overall clown-car effect.

I mean, I love the N/A powerplant, and that V10 is one of the best.

I get the exercise. But do do that swap from a practical standpoint? You can make a reliable 500 HP on the N54 without opening it up. 600 even.
