TechTec Reveals 450 HP BMW 1-Series M Coupe
German tuner TechTec (silly name, isn’t it?) has just revealed that it can offer a high-strung, track-focused version of the 1-Series M Coupe that offers an amazing 450 horsepower from the engine that everybody thought had nothing more to give.
If the prospect of more power than an Audi R8 in a chassis that used to share body parts with a hatchback scares you, than TechTec also offers a more moderate package for the 3.0-liter straight-six, which only provides 40 extra horsepower.
If you are prepared to fork over €2,500, TechTec will make that output a respectable 400 hp. If your bank account has an extra €800 over that, the tuner will go all the way with you, providing the full 450 hp and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft). TechTec says this is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of just 4.1 seconds.
Doesn’t taking a very potent car, and adding stickers and a lot more power, sound a bit like something you would do in a video game? If it doesn't yet, let us add that a KW club sport suspension as well as a titanium exhaust are also avaiable.
