BMWBLOG in collaboration with California-based tuner Vorsteiner give the BMW 1M a makeover. The “baby-M” gets a new aero kit to enhance its already aggressive design.
The aero components built from Vorsteiner-made Autoclave Pre-Preg Carbon Fiber add style and functionality to the 1 Series M Coupe. The blend of form and functionality is perfectly balanced and improves the car’s aerodynamics.
The Front Add-On Spoiler with Integrated Brake Duct is made of carbon-fiber and lowers the ride height.
The rear diffuser also gets a more aggressive design with signature splitter and extended aero fins. The features of rear diffuser starts at the top where an integrated a dual splitter balances the proportions of the rear bumper. In addition, the Vorsteiner designers have integrated five aerodynamic fins that has been extended further down for improved performance and downforce.
