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.
