German tuner TVW Car Design unveils their own version of the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. Dubbed “Orange Competition”, the tuning package provides tangible improvements in the longitudinal and lateral dynamics.
TVW includes an adjustable KW coilover suspension that was specially adapted for TVW and developed on a test rig. The new chassis offers a more balanced handling and sportier ride.
TVW Car Design enhances the visual aspect of the 1M, starting with a new BMW Performance carbon-fiber rear spoiler, black painted roof made out of carbon-fiber and blacked out 20 inch wheels, and 245 and 295 tires at front, respectively in the back.
Thanks to a new exhaust system, a much bulkier intercooler and appropiate software engine tuning, power climbs to 420 horsepower at 5,900 revolutions per minute with the peak torque climbing from 500 to a maximum of 620 Nm, between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm.
TVW Competition C01 has a top speed of 187 mph (306 km/h).
Inside, the “default sporty seats” go out and leather-covered bucket seats will provide better support for the super sporty drivers. A steering wheel with LED indicators provided by BMW Performance, increases the overall look and feel of the 1M.
Installation and customization of the software will set you back 5000 euros, while the exhaust system is sold separately at 1,850 euros.
