BMW X6 by AC Schnitzer

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 technical masterpiece which further magnifies the core qualities of the X6.

Engines - Exhaust

Typical AC Schnitzer: The vehicle`s appearance is not misleading, but simply a reflection of its inner values. The renowned BMW tuner has developed a real firecracker under the bonnet of the diesel versions 3.0dX and 3.5dX with a new Motor Control Unit. Precise performance data will be released shortly.

Another eyecatcher is the chromed tailpipes of the dual-flow exhaust system in AC Schnitzer Racing Design.

The Suspension Technology
Of course, sheer engine power is not the only ingredient in sporting performance. So Manfred Wollgarten, Technical Director of AC Schnitzer, has developed a unique suspension spring kit for the X6 on the North Loop of the Nürburgring.

The Bodywork
In the X6 by AC Schnitzer, the front skirt with its diagonal air intakes and repositioned fog lights are exposed.

The drive-under protection has been removed in favour of a more dynamic contour of the spoiler edge.

The rear carries a massive skirt with framed edges

The Interior
Perfect handling with corresponding Look and Feel is ensured by the "EVO" 3-spoke Sport Airbag steering wheel.

With AC Schnitzer, you hold the road firmly in almost any position. The X6 by AC Schnitzer takes control on public roads as willingly as on changing terrain with varying up and down gradients!

The Wheels
22 inches racing alloy wheels Type VII are just as fascinating.
