BMW 1 Series Coupe’s Carbon Roof Revealed

Check out how the rendered photos of the 1M Raze have taken shape.

Back in August CarBuzz reported on RevoZport teaming up with CP Engineering to create the BMW 1M Raze P450, which looks and runs superb. To boost performance, RevoZport used a front mounted intercooler, downpipes, ECU tuning and a lightweight 14lbs TP340C titanium exhaust imported from Japan. The changes made have complemented the 1M's 3.0-liter turbocharged engine, whilst the American tuning company made extensive use of lightweight carbon fiber on the body.

Amongst other things, the hood, front splitter, trunk, GT spoiler, roof spoiler, roof panel, front grille and mirror covers have saved a sizeable amount of weight enabling a 450hp of output to be produced up from the 335hp of the standard 1M. The roof panel has now been revealed in all its glory and the pictures give us an insight into how the rendered drawings have come to life. A gloss ($1,500) and matte ($1,725) finish is available, which will add both an aesthetic quality and a technical one as it reduces overall mass and lowers the car's center of gravity. All parts and prices are all available on RevoZport's website.
