Arrow G-Power Building Fastest 1M coupe with 600 HP

For G1 V8 HURRICANE RS project, they took the V8 engine out of an M3, including the DCT double-clutch gearbox, and dropped it into “little brother”. But 420 PS wasn’t enough, and they also stuck on an ASA supercharger, as well as other performance goodies to get it to 600 PS.

The car goes from zero to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and has a new top speed of 330km/h (205mph). That might not seem like much, but when you have the bragging right over a Ferrari 458, it doesn’t matter.

Speaking of exotics, the humble 1-Series pretty much is one now, priced at €141,176.80 ($182,900) as a complete package.

They started with a normal 1er, not a 1M. The headliner and the sunroof are a dead giveaway. Looks like the doner was a manual though based on the brake pedal.

That's what it looks like. They are replacing all the fenders and bumpers. That will explain why its so expensive.
Why they did not change roof to CF as well?

When the 1M was first released, there were a few online dealers selling the front end conversion, it was around $1200 if I remember correctly for the front bumper, inserts and fenders. This is definitely a pre LCI, so they had to do the headlights as well, which are another $1200, but still when you're talking $181k, that's chump change. The rear end is a little more difficult, but it still shouldn't be that bad. They must have spent it all in the swap and that interior.

Actually, looking at it more closely, this wasn't even a 135i, it still has the front foglight button, which the 135i never had.
