Germany-based company TechTec decided to have some fun with the new BMW 1M and up its power output to a whooping 450 ponies. The upgrade can be done in stages. 1500 euros, brings the power output from 340 to 380 hp and the torque from 450 Nm to 580 Nm. Adding another 1000 euros on top of this will get you 20 more horsepower.

And if that wasn’t enough, a different air cooler – 800 euros – will make up the power difference to 450 hp and 630 Nm.

With all this power under the hood, the TechTec BMW 1M is said to run to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 4.1 seconds, with the speed delimiter being removed completely as well.

    In hindsight I have to agree with you Horatiu. My M was a little more fun when it did not have 600+ hp. Dr. Segler knows how to make these cars perform in harmony from the factory!

    Horatiu, you seem to have been hacked for a while. I was getting a PayPal lookalike page instead of your home. Things are back to normal now. Great site BTW.

      For a while or for a little bit of time?

        It lasted about 10 minutes. I checked that it was not my local network by accessing via 3G as well with my iPad. I was getting a PayPal home clone instead of your site.

    Sweeettt.. i think those times are underrated. My 135i does 0-100km/hr in 3.6 seconds :D

    And if we spend another 1,000 Euros, I can get an M3. And one another, I get an M5… what’s the point of increasing more and more horsepower? In my opinion the 1M is born to be like that, because if we raise one point, there’s an imbalance in another, and another, and another, and so on… unless the car has been built from scratch with a defined power of 450 hp with all elements engineered to perfectly match the surge in power.
