    • G-Power swaps an S65 V8 into an E82 1M and supercharges it to make the 600 horsepower G1 V8 Hurricane RS

      Now here is a 1 Series that can truly be called an M-car considering that it actually has an M-motor. G-Power starts with the 4.0 liter S65 V8 from the E9X M3 and puts it in the 1M engine bay where it seems to look right at home. They then add a supercharger on top of that to make for a car with a respectable 600 horses. In an interesting design difference from the G-Power S65 V8 supercharger kits, this vehicle has an air to water intercooler. A sign of things to come?

      G-Power also claims the vehicle is capable of 205 MPH which we do not doubt but G-Power needs to back up their claims. They also state this is the fastest 1M in the world. There are a few tuned 1M's out there with the factory N54 motor that may beg to differ. Nobody is doubting how fast this car is as people are aware of how quick supercharged M3's are but some performance numbers to substantiate their claims would be nice. Regardless, an awesome swap with a proper M motor under the hood as every M vehicle should have.

        SO MUCH S65, SO AWESOME..... Interesting that the s/c kit for the 1M uses a different manifold then their E9x M3 kits. Probably didn't have enough space behind the kidney grills for the air/air intercooler

        Right? Looks so much better with this design too...

        I mean, whatever's more efficient is fine by me (air/air vs air/water).... All of GPower's stuff looks OEM, I was just never crazy about the highlighter orange on everything... Rather see them go with this color setup more

        The dark & orange just breaks everything up, gives it a little contrast

        This is by far, hands down, the best 1 series ever. EVER.

        The color and trim is horrible IMO, but other than that, this car is AWESOME!

        This without the blower - is what an M3 should be. With a blower - probably the best overall car in the world. I love it.

        You're right, it was a 135i. There's a sunroof. Look at my top right photo.

        Yup, looks like a non-M to me. It has chrome line too.

        with a 600 hp V8 M3 motor this car is more M then the 1M(tuned 135i) to me. A real dream car.... but it will cost a lot.. probably like a stock M5.

        This can easily be converted but it seems G-Power was misleading with their press release.

        This must of been a ridiculously expensive build. Start with a 135, add on:a 1M body kit, suspension

        Can't edit my $#@!ing post -- This was a ridiculously expensive build:
        Full 1M bodykit


        • S65 Transplant with DCT
        • G-Power SKII CS supercharger kit with redesigned air/war manifold
        • G-Power/KW full suspension upgrade
        • Ceramic Brakes
        • Custom Interior

        Good point. Click here to enlarge

        I still need to get around to driving a stroked S65 - it's gotta be awesome.

        The 1M has enough traction issues, the dash would be blinking like a christmas tree with this setup!

        Insane build to say the least. I cannot even fathom how ludicrous it would be to drive this thing.
