The “Baby-M” now sits on 20 inch wheels with 295 tires in the rear. In the back, Manhart also provides a redesigned diffuser which fits the overall design.
Even though not yet shown to the press, a new front spoiler lip in carbon fiber will be fitted to the 1M. The paint job now feature some sporty black decals, similar to some of the BMW Performance vehicles.
Inside, the interior has been designed to match the sporty and raw character of the 1M. BMW Performance bucket seats are now holding tight the driver and passenger through sharp corners.
To increase its performance, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engine receives 80 more horsepower through extensive modifications to the engine mappings and a new exhaust system. The total output is now measured at 420 horsepower which should take the BMW 1 Series M Coupe from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
No pricing has been announced at the moment, but expect these significant upgrades to set you back a few thousand euros.[Source: BimmerToday ]
