AC Schnitzer ACS1 2.3d TUNE IT! SAFE!

The BMW tuning specialists AC Schnitzer have designed the 5th concept car of the VDAT TUNE IT! SAFE! In 2010, BMW AG is providing a BMW 123d Coupe which is supported by the Police and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Road Development. Most of the vehicle accessory equipment has been supplied by Aachen-based BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer. The tuners have upgraded the 2.3 D engine to 241 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque. The model is now enabled to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. The power is being sent to the road through Type IV BiColor wheels covered in tired developed by Hankook. The low, safe road position is achieved with the sports suspension from the Aachen-based specialist with 30 mm lowering. The kit developed for improving the styling of the car includes a two-piece front spoiler, rear skirt insert, rear wing and rear roof spoiler. On the inside, it features bucket seats with AC Schnitzer logo and silver genuine carbon fiber trim on the dashboard, center console, door handles and steering wheel, which are perfectly complemented by the aluminum pedals and aluminum foot rest. The concept car impressively demonstrates large parts of the tuning accessory range from AC Schnitzer. The concept car will not be brought into use and is not available in this complex form, unfortunately. The AC Schnitzer ACS1 2.3d Coupe will be revealed for the first time at the Essen Motor Show on November 28th 2009 and will remain on display until December 6th. The serious and safe tuning is not only the philosophy of the company, but also the mission of its specialists.
