Already an instant classic, the two-door stock BMW 1M Coupe was a 1 Series fitted with a modified version of the automaker's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six from contemporary M3 models. Limited production run ended just after one year in 2011. Only 740 units made it to the States.
Dinan Engineering is well known and well regarded as a BMW tuner. On this special modified Dinan 1M Coupe, wheel widths are bumped up by a half-inch both front and rear. Larger turbochargers, a high-capacity oil cooler, bigger air-to-air intercooler, free-flow exhaust boost the impressive 1M Coupe to generate 444 horsepower, an increase of 109 horsepower from the stock model. Top speed is around 180 mph (approx. 290 km/h). (autoblog.com)
