Yes, you read right. V10 engine in a BMW 1 Series hatchback. Fitting this engine in such a small car is a monumental task, but once accomplished, the little hot hatch takes its performance to a whole new level.
This BMW E87 1 Series hatchback received a legendary 5.0 liter V10 engine from BMW E60 M5, which in standard form outputs 507 horsepower and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft). The engine is matted to an SMG transmission.
But the owner didn’t stop here. With the help of the guys at KJ-Performance, the car now delivers even more horsepower thanks to a G-POWER Bi-Compressor kit. This kit uses two belt driven ASA superchargers which produce 7.2 psi (0.5 bar) of boost to increase engine output to 750 horsepower! If the car wasn’t crazy before it sure is now. It’s a beast.
