435hp Could be What Was Missing.

The BMW 1M has sold out, praised and coveted by nearly everyone within earshot of its 3.0L turbocharged engine. Unless you have been fortunate enough to get behind the wheel, you’ll have to take our word for it and trust us when we say it is an amazing car.

The team at G-Power, on the other hand, feels the car was lacking its true potential in the horsepower department. G-Power has plenty of experience in tuning high performance BMW’s with their M3 supercharger kits. Utilizing that experience they were able to leverage their team and produce a 1M that is certifiably insane.

Incorporating maximum boost, lightweight components (including a 40 lb lighter titanium exhaust kit) G-Power and custom engine-software where new fuel management and ignition timing help in cranking out the 435hp.

Making sure power is properly translated to the pavement a set of 20” Silverstone Diamond wheels with Michelin tires (225 front and 295 rear) are paired with G-Power coilovers and performance brake, ensuring a ride rivaled with its big brother the M3. All resulting in one of the best sibling rivalries we can think of to date.
