This year at IAA BMW tuner AC Schnitzer will unveil their complete package for the new 1-Series M Coupe.
The car might look all cutesy and cuddly, but under that vented bonnet the turbocharged I6 engine has received a thorough upgrade and 400 hp. It also gets AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer with chromed “Racing” tailpipe that let it breath more easily and also sound nicer.
To cope with the added power, AC has fitted the car with a high performance brake system with 6piston caliper at front and 4piston caliper at the rear. It also gets fully adjustable AC Schnitzer racing suspension.
The body kit consist of carbon front spoiler, chromed front grille, carbon rear diffusor, trunk lid spoiler, and AC Schnitzer design elements on the front wings. There is a wide range of 19 and 20-inch wheels to choose from: Type VIII and Type V forged alloy wheels in BiColor, Type VIII and Type IV wheels in BiColor and Type IV in silver.
The interior is garnished with painted centre console and interior trim in “Valencia Orange”, the AC Schnitzer “Black Line” aluminium gear knob and handbrake handle and the “Black Line” aluminium cover for the i-Drive, plus aluminium foot rest and pedal set, and velour foot mats.
AC has left nothing untouched then, a very complete tuning job.
