BMW 1M Akrapovic Ride & Killer Sound : Absolute Beast
During Top Marques Monaco 2014, I had a ride in that insane BMW 1M. Not any
1M : this one has been tuned to 420hp and fitted with an Akrapovic Exhaust.
The sounds need no description, it's just really loud and beautiful.
Akrapovic doesn't make just noise like other Exhaust makers, they make beautiful sounds.
With 420hp and a manual gearbox, this little BMW 1M really is a driver's
car. Powerful and loud, it handles very well!
This was probably my favourite car of the 2014 Top Marques.
Thanks a lot to Dijon Auto Racing, the only official Akrapovic dealership
in France ; they also can reprogram the ECU and performance parts for your
