I would be very surprised if this car started its life as a 1M. You probably remember the Sepang Bronze 1M delivered in Singapur(?).

The chrome-line trim is throwing me off...

Is this a 1M? Or a 135i made to look like a 1M? I didn't realize 1M's could come with chrome-line trim, doesn't seem very "M" like...

Plus that interior is too Rolls Royce, it doesn't go with the cars style...

In several countries (including Germany) the 1M silver trim ("Chrome Line") is a standard feature. The gloss black trim ("Hochglanz Shadow Line") is optional (option 760). It cannot be retrofitted. According to my purchase order it was €103.31 + 21% VAT = €125.00 in 2011. According to the German specs list it was €100.84 + taxes = €120.00 in 2011. The vast majority on this forum prefers the Shadow Line over the Chrome Line. But of course, that's just a matter of personal taste.

I see this and I say to myself: G-Power fixes BMW's mistakes.
I see this and ask myself if some day: G-Power will bring the S65 V8 to the F80/F82.

from what i have read the n54 is 195kg (430lbs) and the s65 is 202kg (445lbs), not that noticeable weight difference. sure the supercharger adds some weight but overall the engines aren't that far apart. i personally think it should have come with the s65 from the start.

Odd how there were few 1M's made and so many wind up with radical conversions. I also wonder if this was a 1M from the start. Considering that most of the drive line is being replaced it would not be that big of a deal to get a wide body kit, M3 rear axle and a few other body parts.

Any word on price?
yes, the car is a 135 conversion.
the mirror and chrome trim indicate it's not a 1m
either way, very impressive.

Where are you getting those weights from?

2 turbos, ic piping and ic adds a lot of weight.. Add a sizeable supercharger, piping and intercooler and you'll see a much MUCH larger gap in weight.

202kg sounds incredibly light for the size of the engine (and 2 more pistons) when made out of the same materials

I don't have the numbers in front of me, but I know for a fact that the S65 v8 is lighter than the I6 S54, not sure how it compares to the N54 but I bet it's pretty close in weight.

awesome concept but why do it one a 1M. i would never do that to such a limited run car thats sure to be a collectors car in the upcoming years if its not already. this should have been done on a 135 if anything. could have easily called that the G1 as well lol. just my .02 though, to each their own.

.5 bar on that light, little, short wheel based car, is probably WAYYYYYYY to much for the rear tires. I bet that thing doesnt get traction till 4th gear with the Super Sport tires on the back. and that interior is a little much in my opinion and def does not fit the style of the 1m.... but thats what G-POWER is known for....hence the name haha: G for GANGSTA and P for POWER since it spins the wheels all the way thru 1st 2nd 3rd and scratches in 4th haha

Just not my taste but probably a really fun car to drive
They should include a 3 day driving school on just how to control the damn thing on the street, let alone the track
