BMW 335d refined by AC Schnitzer is the world fastest diesel car
AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupe is the world fastest road-legal diesel car. Built by the renowned BMW tuner from Aachen - AC Schnitzer, the ACS3 3.5d Coupe broke the world record from 2006 by reaching the astonishing 288.7 km/h at the legendary high-speed circuit in Nardo, southern Italy.
This is the third world record set by AC Schnitzer at Nardo. After the records from 2006 with the TENSION as the fastest road-legal BMW and the GP3.10 GAS POWERED from 2007 for gas-powered vehicles, the ACS3 3.5d Coupe has continued the success story.
Based on BMW 335d, the ACS3 3.5d Coupe benefits from an extensive AC Schnitzer programme specially developed for all vehicles based on the 3.5d BMW engine.
AC Shnitzer also showcased the ACS4 3.5 turbo based on the BMW Z4 sDrive 35i, which stopped the GPS speedometers at 303.1 km/h. It's not a new world record, but such a high speed is almost unreal for a Roadster.
