BMW 1 Series M Coupe by Leib Engineering

When it comes to BMW cars, there are a lot of tuning companies willing to accept the challenge of creating a tuning pack. And BMW 1 Series M Coupe is no exception. And who would do better in upgrading such a car than a German company. And precisely this combination is found in the BMW 1 Series M Coupe tuned by Leib Engineering.


Leib Engineering covered the BMW 1 Series M Coupe in a matte grey foil wrap. The guys also placed a carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler, an Alpha-N diffuser and a Bilstein sport suspension. The vehicle now rides on a set of 20-inch Bavaria BC5 Concave wheels that wear Yokohama Advan Sport tires. The styling might seem a bit odd with those baby blue rims and they completely change the look of the BMW. It might not suit everyone and there could be some reluctant people to the idea offered by the Leib team.


The BMW 1 Series M Coupe is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, which thanks to an optimized ECU and a Supersprint sports exhaust system is capable of generating 400 HP (298 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. This means an increase of 60 HP (44 kW) and 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) compared to the base model. Clients are free to choose larger turbochargers, a “suction system” and a new cooling system which together with a revised sports exhaust system can allow the engine to output 500 HP (367 kW) and 600 Nm (442 kW) of torque.
