One of the Bavarian automaker’s creation had been tuned up by a tuning house namely the Tuningwerk by fitting the BMW 1 Series with a 3.0 liter engine. Such engine is able to sport the BMW 1- Series with a total output of 521 ponies, equal to 388 kW or 528 PS and 614 Nm or nearly 453 lb- ft of peak torque. The tuning house claims this unit is able to reach a top speed of 300 kph or about 186 mph.
Apart of the mechanical upgrade, Tuningwerk also had applied some modification by using a titanic exhaust system that is completed with an updated cooling system.
Tuningwerk also had made use of carbon fiber to be applied on the car’s exterior, including the GT4 front lip, engine hood, boot lid and rear spoiler. Carbon fiber also being used for the car’s interior such as to form the bucket seats that are wrapped in Recaro PolePosition. With the extensive use of that lighweight material, the weight of the car had been suceessfully reduced.
In addition, the tuner also complete the upgrade with 19 inch rims that house Dunlop Sport Maxx tires. Upgraded 370 mm or 380 mm carbon ceramic brake discs are placed behind the rims and tires. The tuner said that with only minimum alterations, the car is ready to be able to pass the FIA admission.
