Hat trick for AC Schnitzer in "sport auto" reader survey Top for Styling and Engine Tuning MINI by AC Schnitzer most successful vehicle of all classes

There are companies who offer visually exciting cars, and there are companies who invest their entire know-how in stable and refined technology. At AC Schnitzer however, no-one ever has to settle for a compromise. This has recently been confirmed again by the German magazine "sport auto", whose readers have just voted on the most sporting cars and the "Best Brands" amongst manufacturers and tuners for 2008. Around 10,000 people took part in the survey.

AC Schnitzer has even managed to improve on its already excellent results from last year, and this year won an impressive triple victory. In the "Engine Tuning" sector, 51.3% (2007: 47.2%) of voters chose the Aachen-based tuner which has dedicated itself to tuning BMWs and MINIs since 1987. In the "Visual Styling" category, AC Schnitzer again achieved the best result with 41.5% (2007: 40%).

But it's not just as a company that AC Schnitzer won accolades. Its MINI was enthusiastically received by 60.4% of the sport auto readers in the category of tuned "small cars". No other vehicle in the survey won more votes. Not in any of the eleven tuning classes which covered 84 cars, nor in the total of 146 standard models.

AC Schnitzer would like to thank all readers who participated in this survey for their vote of confidence.
