This BMW 1M Coupe Is all about Germany

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup in full swing, each country is trying to support its national team, the best way it can. Every man is doing its part and, depending on what the country’s specialty is, a variety of ways to show your support can be found.

So, what’s Germany best at? Engineering? Yup, that’s about it and cars seem to be its specialty. With brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Porsche and BMW all calling ‘Deutschland’ their home, it’s hard to think of anything else the Germans do better.

Now, the car we’re about to show you might not’ve been done specifically for the World Cup but it seems like too much of a coincidence that it was spotted just around this time of the year, when the German national team is doing quite well in Brazil.

The base model used was a BMW E82 1M Coupe, a brilliant car that seems to be appreciating as time passes instead of depreciating. Fitted with a 3-liter twin turbocharged petrol inline 6-cylinder engine, the 1M Coupe used to make in stock guise around 340 HP and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque.

This one, though, might be different. From the look of things, it’s fitted with the Revozport Exterior body kit that includes a front spoiler, rear wing, new diffuser and rear spoiler, all of them made of carbon fibre. That could also hint at a new ECU map for the engine and a bigger power output.

So, what makes this car so special? Look at the color scheme used. All around you’ll only see the colors of the German flag: yellow, black and red. Look even closer and you’ll notice the M colors have been replaced by the same yellow, red and black as well as badges and even the wheel caps.

One rather interesting detail is that, despite all this effort to show its German nature, the car was spotted in China. How and why it got there is an interesting question...
