Alpha-N BMW 1M RS
With the complete reconstruction of a BMW 1M series coupe, Alpha-N has succeeded in creating a real spectacular Alpha Beast. As is well known, the reduction of weight is the uppermost priority in racing sport, for which, at best, the peccably expensive material ‘carbon fiber’ is applied. For this reason, the technicians of Alpha-N fitted the bodywork of the 1M series with a completely new carbon clad comprising a carbon engine hood with air outlets, one set of carbon front spoiler corners, a carbon roof, carbon rear flap with integrated spoiler lip and a carbon rear diffuser.
The Alpha-N’s 1M RS also has a lot to offer from the point of view of driving dynamics. After a complete reworking of the serial six cylinder version with an engine displacement of about three liters, the axle drive shafts will henceforth be pulled by 404 horsepower. This provides an addition 70 horsepower achieved through software optimization, a new air duct as well as a specially developed exhaust system. To facilitate the adequate braking of this propulsion in a manner befitting of its specie, Alpha-N fitted the front axle of the 1 M series with a high-performance braking system from MAC with 380 mm large disks and 6 piston saddles. There was also a set of sports brake pads and flexible steel lines added to it. The pressure of contact with the surface of the road is assumed by extremely light O.Z. Superforgiata rims measuring 8.5 inches in the front and 10.0x19 inches in the rear and fitted with a Michelin Cup tire of 245 and 265.
