As previously reported, BMW is looking to offer a more dramatic series of accessories for its upcoming models. This 2012 BMW 1 Series M Performance edition, for instance, comes with a full bodykit, black racing stripes over the length of the car and various black highlights.
The chunky bodykit consists of a carbon fibre rear diffuser, side skirts with darkened highlights and an aggressive front chin spoiler with a huge gaping air intake. The BMW 1 Series M Performance also comes with new 19-inch alloy wheels, BMW M sports suspension and a high-performance brake package.
This version will be on display at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show as a concept, and as a preview to the future of BMW M Performance accessories.
BMW has said that engine tuning kits will also be on offer in the future, making mention of the '35i' models receiving engine tunes adding 15kW and 30Nm (225kW to 240kW, 400Nm to 430Nm). Other tuning packages are expected to be unveiled at the Frankfurt show.
