For 33 years, the 3-series has been the sporting choice in the mid-range. Sufficient reason not just for BMW to refine the reliable performer with some effective modifications. So AC Schnitzer has upgraded the facelifted saloon and Touring models with new front spoiler elements for vehicles with and without M-Technik pack. By reducing lines, the Aachen company has placed the emphasis on dynamics: instead of bulky curves, straight and slender form
A catalyst is a chemical reaction accelerant and can be found in every modern car. But where to find a biochemical emotion accelerant? In the incredible cabrios by AC Schnitzer. Open the top as soon as the weather turns fine, and enjoy a daily dose of endorphins. The tuning house has refined the 1-, 3- and 6-series for the senses, and provides a special feeling for spring. Unfiltered by panels and glass, the crescendo of the AC Schnitzer exhaust system hits the ear directly, and creates goose-pi
There's no driving pleasure without the right engine power: But what's the use of pressing the gas pedal hard, if the power doesn't get to where it's needed? On rapid acceleration out of corners or in the wet, or on loose surfaces such as ice, snow or dirt, you soon find one wheel spinning helplessly on the spot. For smooth forward progress, AC Schnitzer offers an after-market limited slip differential for the BMW 1-series and 3-series and for th
AC Schnitzer Presents New Addition to Falcon Territory
Falcons are becoming increasingly common in town. Now a particularly imposing variant of the agile predator is conquering the road valleys with its broad wings: the Falcon based on the X6 by AC Schnitzer. It follows the styling features of the X5 version of the same name, already successfully launched. Other identifying marks are the striking wing extensions of PU-RIM, a high quality plastic which is far more flexible and robust than for e
Sinful black or radiant silver? Now at AC Schnitzer, two beautiful wheel sisters in the Type VII series are competing passionately for the favour of drivers of BMW X5 and X6.
After the recent successful launch of the dark alloy wheel, the brightly shining version now rises fresh from the forging fire. Also in a
The sun shines, the wind's in your hair and the engine note in your ears: almost no other vehicle on the road evokes such untrammelled emotions as the BMW M3 Cabriolet. Especially when the road leads via AC Schnitzer in Aachen. The 309 kW / 420 HP V8 engine is (as yet) untouched, but in the end, extra sporting performance can be achieved in a different way, as suspension guru Manfred Wollgarten knows: "With our racing suspension set up on the North Loop, we've thoroughly mastered the physics of driving".
The falcon has always been a born fighter, the bird of warriors and a status symbol of the mighty and powerful. The peregrine falcon, with a dive speed of more than 200 km/h, is the fastest bird in the world. With its broad "wings", the new Falcon by AC Schnitzer also presents a majestic aura. The new widening kit for the front and rear wings perfectly harmonises with the existing accessory range from the Aachen-based tuner.

An eyecatcher at first glance - this calls for a closer look AC Schnitzer presents the new styling and performance package for the BMW X6. The new BMW X6 exerts a particular form of magnetism: not only does its chassis sit perfectly on the road, it also magically attracts attention. Now it appears there is only one place where the fascination, dynamism and presence of the first Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) can be enhanced: in the workshops of AC Schnitzer in Aachen. The result is a visual and te
The traditional British International Motor Show is almost as old as the car: It took place for the first time back in 1903 in the legendary Crystal Palace, which was once built for the world exhibition in London. Between 23rd July and 3rd August 2008 the automobile industry bestows the honour on the ExCel exhibition a

More aggressive, more attractive: With its latest facelift, BMW has made its successful 6-series coupé a little more dynamic.
Everyone who thinks this measure does not go far enough will welcome the newly restyled aerodynamic components from AC Schnitzer. Like its predecessor, the new front skirt of the ACS6 mirrors the famous kidney design of the grille, but its proportions have been clearly sharpened by Head Designer Michele Viandante.
In conjunction with the new- style triangular fog
Driving pleasure has been written large at AC Schnitzer for 20 years. And happily, nothing will change for the 62nd IAA. But this goal can be reached in a totally alternative way, as the launch of the superb AC Schnitzer GP3.10 GAS POWERED shows. This high-performance coupé has LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) drive, where power and efficiency, economy and ecology, meet in an exciting study.
