Dinan Elevates The Already Heavenly BMW 1M To New Heights: Video

Follow Jeff

The 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe is extremely high on the list of cars that every enthusiast should drive at least once. It's a perfect example of exactly what BMW is capable of when it remembers that it used to build cars fitting the tagline; The Ultimate Driving Machine. Under the hood of the 1M sits a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that's aided by a pair of turbochargers. It's called the N54, and it's a truly wonderful engine that has found love amongst the BMW faithful. It's also the perfect starting point for a company like Dinan to go nuts.

Enter the Dinan S3-R BMW 1M... or Dinan 1M for short.

What the Dinan team have done is turn the 1M into a truly amazing machine. That's a pretty excellent achievement considering the 1M is already amazing. Dinan has gone further, however, because the S3-R now produces 444 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque from the N54 engine. This comes about thanks to larger turbochargers, an air-to-air intercooler, and a host of other under-hood goodies.

Additionally, the Dinan 1M gets a full suspension makeover, larger tires, upgraded Brembo brakes, and sticky rubber. The resulting vehicle is one of the best driver's cars... on the planet.
