Some cars signal from afar that they have little to do with your average transportation. But that’s not the case with this flashy BMW 1M which went through an extensive tuning process. The folks at Laptime Performance have not only enhances its outer looks, but also gave the “baby-M” some impressive power.

This 1 Series M Coupe has been modified for the track starting from inside out. The standard seats were replaced by light and gripping sports bucket seats – Recaro Pole Position, and six-point belts by Schroth fix were added to the mix. When looking in the rear, instead of a back seat, a roll cage reminds us this is a car made for the track.
