BMW 1 Series M Coupe RS by Tuningwerk

Puchheim-based performance specialist Tuningwerk has developed an extreme RS program for owners of the epic BMW 1 Series M Coupe with a predilection for circuits.

Already producing 246 kW (335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb/ft) of torque from its bi-turbo 3.0-litre straight-six, Tuningwerk’s conversion, which includes reworked turbochargers and an uprated intercooler, sees those figures rise to 388 kW (521 hp) and 614 Nm (453 lb/ft). Other upgrades include a modified (or optional racing) clutch, Titanium exhaust system, a rear axle ratio of 3.25 (3.45 optional), a second oil cooler and locking differential with a Drexler-Motorsport lock. Chassis enhancements consist of a KW Clubsport Variant 3 coilover kit and anti-roll bars, a MOV’IT big brake system with either 370 mm steel or 380 mm carbon ceramic discs, while the wheels are forged ATS superlights, sized 9 and 10 x 19-inches and wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres.

Physically the 1M wears a replacement hood, GT4 front spoiler, rear wing and boot lid – all constructed from carbon fibre – as are the RECARO Pole Position seats. For the hardcore amongst you, Tuningwerk can also fit carbon doors, plastic side windows and a full rollcage.

If you’re interested in purchasing a complete car, be prepared to part with around € 119,000. Personally, we feel that a carbon fibre roof panel wouldn’t have gone a miss here.
