By creating the ACS3 3.5d Coupé, based on the BMW 335d, Ac Schnitzer brakes the world record for the fastest production diesel car for the third time in a row! Apparently they are really god at working with diesel engines! The record was set during ‘Auto Bild Sportscars‘ high speed test at the world famous Nardo track in Italy. The ACS3 managed to hit 288.7 km/h (~180 mph). This record is 8.7 km/h faster than the previous one set in 2006.
They also tested the AC Schnitzer ACS4 3.5 turbo – based on the BMW Z4 sdrive 35i – and achieved 303.1 km/h, quite impressive for a roadster. As a BMW specialist, AC Schnitzer also is the creator of the Tension, world’s fastest road legal Bimmer.
