This fetching BMW 1M comes from Johannesburg, South Africa, thanks to Divio Photography who sent us these beautiful photos. The 1M comes equipped with carbon fiber aftermarket parts, a full exterior wrap and some fine aftermarket wheels too. Overall, it’s a clean and impressive way of refreshing the looks of the BMW 1M without overdoing it.
The owner added a carbon fiber front lip, a rear diffuser and a trunk lid for a more complete look of the 1M. With the custom MORR Wheels completing the project, this 1M looks ready to tackle on anything it encounters on the roads today.
Under the hood, the BMW 1M Coupé uses a re-tuned version of the twin-turbocharged N54 engine which is used in various other models such as the 2011 BMW 335is. The 3.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo produces 340 PS (250 kW) at 5900 rpm and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) torque from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm. An overboost feature brings the total torque to 369 lb-ft (500 Nm).
The only available drivetrain is a six-speed manual gearbox with a limited slip differential. This gives the small 1M an impressive performance allowing it to sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.3 seconds. The car comes with an electronically limited speed of 155 mph (250km/h).
