The BMW 1 Series M Coupe
is a limited-edition German sports car that has us considering a raid upon our 401(k). We'd also happily supply our significant others with the BMW 650i convertible
. One day, however, we would wind up at a stoplight night to a couple with more money who opted for the AC Schnitzer
-tuned versions of both, and our smiles would give way to frowns that lacked sufficient funds to retire.
AC Schnitzer has applied its wrenches to both the 1M and the 6 Series droptop with dramatic results. The compact coupe sees its power jump from 340 horses up to an even 400, while the convertible climbs from 407 horsepower up to 540. Both vehicles feature upgraded brake and suspension packages to help handle the increased go-force, and a host of aero tweaks have been thrown in for good measure.
Inside the cabins of each car, AC Schnitzer has applied its own touches to the seats, steering wheel, pedals and other areas that require constant contact. Alcantara and aluminum are called upon in great measure, and the materials dominate the purpose-driven cabins.
Check out both cars in their respective galleries, then hop over the jump
for full specs on each vehicle.Continue reading AC Schnitzer turns its attention on to the BMW 1M, 6 Series
