With 627 horsepower on tap, the M5 CS currently holds the title of BMW’s most powerful product of all time. However, the tuning scene has repeatedly shown us that you can get rid of ridiculous energy from far fewer cars. In fact, it is a 1 Series, although it comes from a time when there was still an inline-six engine.
Yes, it’s an M140i, but the days when its B58 produced “only” 335 horsepower are long gone. Owned by YouTuber Hampshire photo, The Bavarian hot hatch has reached the pure turbos so that its forced bringing is completely restructured. It was already a stage 2 before entering the workshop in Belgium. Once it gets there, it hits the dinosaur to produce 480 crank horsepower, moving on 407 hp wheels.
Then it’s time to remove the original turbocharger and install the larger unit portion of the Pure800 Stage 3 package. As if that weren’t enough, the M140i got a beast exhaust system. Back in the dinos after getting the mods, the B58 made 567 hp crank and 483 hp wheels. After the remap, the numbers reached 617 hp and 525 hp, respectively.
The M140i has gone from hot hatch to hyper hatch
With E30 fuel (70% gasoline and 30% ethanol), the M140i was developing a fleshy 670 hp crank and 570 WHP standard ECU. After it flashed, the inline-six engine was producing 730 hp on the crank, with 620 hp going on wheels. Having so much power in such a small car is quite scary, and even without ethanol, it should be quite a fireworks display.
It’s a matter of time before we see hatchbacks with supercar level capabilities in drag races. Meanwhile, it is heading to Germany for a high-speed run in a glorious automobile We’d be interested in seeing some solid launches instead of its direct top speed, although that should be pretty impressive, too.
