The new 2012 G-Power BMW 1M Coupe covers all key components that let it join up with the other M-Models. Thereby the G-POWER engineering department has used the know-how gained from the development of the G-POWER supercharger systems on the BMW 3.0l straight six cylinder engine. After all the ASA supercharger used by G-POWER for its supercharger systems is conceptual closely related to the turbocharger used by BMW, since both variants use a centrifugal compressor to build up boost.
2012 G-Power BMW 1M Coupe Interior and Exterior. With its up to six brake pistons and up to 396 mm brake disc diameter, the G-POWER Braking System enables a substantially higher brake force than the standard braking system. At the same time, the heat generated due to the braking process can be dissipated more effectively. The G-POWER brake package is completed by brake pads with a larger pad area, higher friction rate as well as metal-coated brake lines. With this set-up, the G-POWER Braking System always provides maximum brake force and the braking point remains precise in any case. In addition the G-POWER ceramic braking system reduces the unsprung mass by 50% percent, compared to a system with steel brake discs. Accordingly the cornering and road handling is improved significantly.
Exhaust sides a complete exhaust system made from Titanium with 4 Carbon or Titanium tail pipes provides for a sporty sound, which can be enhanced up to racing level by a wireless control switch. At the same time the use of the ultra light material Titanium enables a weight reduction compared to the stock exhaust system by approx. 20 kg.
Concerning the suspension at first one will notice the 20 inch G-POWER SILVERSTONE SILVERSTONE wheels, wrapped with tyres from the G-POWER’s technology partner MICHELIN in the dimensions 255/30 ZR 20 and 295/25 ZR 20. The double spokes, typical for the G-POWER design, highlight the spectacular design of the BMW 1M Coupé. Further improvement of the road handling is realized through the continuously height-adjustable G-POWER coil-over suspension GM1-RS with nine selectable settings each for bound and rebound.
2012 G-Power BMW 1M Coupe Engines and Transmissions. All the G-POWER engine modifications for the BMW 1M Coupé add up to a power output enhancement from 340 hp / 500 Nm to 435 hp / 590 Nm. So the G-POWER 1M Coupé surpasses its bigger brother the M3 by 15 hp and a giant 195 Nm of torque. Prepared like this the G-POWER 1M Coupé propels itself from stand still to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and the top speed is reached at 300 km/h.
