Our sister magazine BimmerToday spotted a BMW 1M that belongs to the famous German tuner AC Schnitzer. Known for offering their own visual and performance upgrades to BMW models, the Aachen-based tuner seems to be focusing their efforts on the new 1M.

Details are not available at the moment, but the photos reveal the Type V 20 inch wheels which implicitly leads us to believe that the 1M by AC Schnitzer has a built-in adjustable suspension. The 1M is also running on Continental tires in size 235/35 R 20 for front and 295/25 R 20 at the rear.

The brake system has also undergone some changes with the 1M now featuring slotted disks with multi-piston calipers.

With an engine similar to the one found in the Z4 sDrive35is, one can expect a power upgrade to 380 horsepower and 520 Nm of torque and possibly a top speed of 300 km/h.

Expect more details in the upcoming weeks.

    a 20″ wheels means it has adjustable suspension ? How ?
    Also the 1M does come with multi-piston calipers. Heck even the 135i comes with them.
    it looks like a lowered car with a set of 20″ slapped on.

    amazing power , but 20s just dont run with this car…300kmh should not be a problem… 520Nm at what revs? same amount as E60 M5er

    Dinan : With a peak horsepower of 398 at 5700 rpm and the peak torque of 429
    lb-ft at 4300 rpm as tested with Dinan High Capacity Oil Cooler System
    and Dinan Free Flow Exhaust is a monumental increase over the stock 300
    horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque BMW quotes.

    and that is on the 135i which is what the 1M also based on.  I can see tuners going over 400HP easily. Active Autowerke reportedly did 411HP from the 135i.

    sadly no more of the N54 only N55 which is not as tune-able but still impressive on its own.
