All these modifications increase the output to 429 horsepower and 590 Nm of torque up from 335 horsepower and 450 Nm or 500 Nm of torque. This new output enables the BMW 1-Series M Coupe to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 186 mph. German tuner, G-Power also equips the M Coupe with height-adjustable G coil-over suspension. This features nine selectable settings. To handle the extra power, the G-Power engineers have offers a high-performance braking system that features six-piston calipers and 396 mm discs. Now, to transfer the power to the road, the BMW 1-Series M Coupe is equipped with 20-inch Silverstone wheels covered in Michelin tires measuring 255/30 ZR 20 at the front axle and 295/25 ZR 20 at the rear one. This is not all the G-Power engineers have to offer.

The German specialists have also developed a contrasting decal kit. Unfortunately, these are all the information available so far on the newly modified BMW 1-Series M Coupe, but stay tuned for more.
