There have been a lot of tuners already so far that have worked over the BMW 1 M coupe this past year. The latest is Hartge. The German company's program includes performance upgrades and styling modifications fo rthe M Version of the 1 Series Coupe.
Hartge starts their magic with a power kit and a sports exhaust system that improves on the standard model's 3.0 liter turbocharged inline six lifting output from 335hp to 396hp at 5,850 rpm. It has a maximum torque from 450Nm to 530Nm at 2,950 rpm.
The tuner claims a 0-200km/h in 11.34 seconds, which is a significant improvement over the standard model's 13.52 second run. For the suspension, Hartge offers a 30mm lowering kit, while buyers can also fit their cars with a choice of alloy wheels.
The tuner also styles the car with a boot lid and roof spoilers, new exhaust tips and Hartge emblems. Check out more pics of it in the gallery:
