For years now, G-Power has been churning out high-horsepower BMWs from its tuning factory, and the newest creation is its take on the sporty 1M model.

The German engineers at G-Power went straight to work on the 3.0-liter, turbocharged inline-six powerplant increasing its performance from 335-hp and 369 lb-ft of torque to 429-hp and 435 lb-ft of torque. The increase in power comes courtesy of an ECU retune, new downpipes, and a lightweight titanium exhaust that sheds 44-lbs compared to the stock unit.

G-Power claims that its 1M Coupe hits 62-mph in just 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 186-mph. But all the upgrades weren’t just done under the hood, as expected on a creation from G-Power. Coilovers allow for nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound, while the stock brakes were replaced with larger rotors and six-piston calipers. On all four corners are 20-inch Silverstone wheels mated to Michelin rubber.
