The M in the name
promises much. Kelleners Sport guarantees even more. Now, with the
BMW 1-Series M Coupé (Type E82), the German BMW specialists have
taken the combination of high-performance engine and lightweight
body to its logical automotive conclusion – power up to 410 hp,
unique handling characteristics, improved aerodynamics and the
high-grade interior are the distinguishing features of the KS1-S.
The high-revving inline six-cylinder engine with twin-turbochargers
boosts the output of the KS Power SW 35M by a good 20 percent.
Instead of the standard 340 hp (250 kW), the KS1-S produces max. 410
hp (301 kW) while max torque jumps from 450 to 550 Nm. The result is
a decline in weight to power ratio from 4.4 to 3.8 kg per hp. And
emphasising all this power are special Kelleners Sport rear
silencers. With four 83 mm tail pipes, the stainless-steel system is
optimised for unrestricted flow and distinguishes the car from the
series model with a significantly more exciting exhaust sound.
The aerodynamic components of Kelleners Sport are designed to
minimise wind resistance and ensure maximum down-force at high
speeds. The MS front spoiler lip and the three-part MS grill insert
made of electro polished stainless steel underscore the aerodynamic
qualities of the car and create a supplementary visual impact.
Naturally, this does not affect the BMW air curtains, which improve
the aerodynamics by channelling the air stream around the front
wheels. Visually, the improved agility is accentuated by decorative
strips on the bonnet, roof and side sills.
The adjustable coil-over
suspension system has been developed on the basis of racing
experience and tuned in cooperation with eponym and racing driver
Ralf Kelleners. Thus, Kelleners Sport gives the ambitious driver a
wide range of options for setting the car up to suit his or her
individual needs. Besides the continuously variable height
adjustment, the suspension can also be adjusted independently in
terms of both rebound and compression. In other words, the KS1-S can
be set-up exactly to take account of the track, the tyres and the
The Kelleners Sport light-alloy wheels also contribute to the
sporting characteristics and image. The extremely light, one-piece
wheels reduce the unsprung weight and thus ensure dynamic handling.
At the front, the 9x20-inch wheels are fitted with 245/30
high-performance tyres while the rear axle comes with 10x20-inch
wheels and 265/30 tyres. With their 15 elegant spokes, the ‘Hamburg’
wheels are available in the following finishes: polished
graphite-silver, polished platinum-silver and matt black. The
‘Berlin’ wheel with slender double spokes is available in platinum
silver polished, matt black polished and matt black.
The work of the
Kelleners Sport saddlery department, the high-grade interior concept
gives the KS1-S the exclusive ambience of a luxury sports car.
Top-quality perforated leather and velvety Alcantara in black and
white fully cover the front and rear seats, the dashboard and the
door panels. The white contrast stitching and the Kelleners Sport
logo embroidered onto the head rests set elegant accents and
underscore the car’s exclusive flair. The sports steering wheel is
fitted with Alcantara applications. Additionally, the gear lever and
hand brake boots are made of Alcantara. Rounding off the interior
upgrade are high-gloss white interior trim and familiar accessories,
such as aluminium pedals and a set of four foot mats made of
high-grade velour with the Kelleners Sport logo.
The customised BMW
1-Series M Coupé is unequivocal evidence of the experience and
expertise offered by Kelleners Sport. All work is based on a
comprehensive concept for performance and handling, as well as
interior and exterior style, and transforms an exclusive car into a
unique and individual automobile – the Kelleners Sport KS1-S.
