BMW 1-series M Coupe by AC Schnitzer

The 2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe by AC Schnitzer is mainly characterized by high performance, outstanding technology together with an authentic motorsport atmosphere. It unleashes a power pack featuring athletic design onto the road. The Aachen-based tuning experts AC Schnitzer have increased power from 340 to 400 HP, which are delivered via the transmission to the wide, weight-optimised 19 or 20-inch wheels and together with the AC Schnitzer power plant and engine bay styling, it is available for the export market. The six-cylinder engine breathes more freely and creates a sound that perfectly fits the sporting image, thanks to the AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer integrating chromed "Racing" tailpipe trims right and left. Rapid and stable deceleration is ensured for such a power track, by a 6-piston caliper on the front and a 4-piston fixed caliper on the rear that combine with internally vented brake discs and caliper holders. The AC Schnitzer racing suspension ensures safe cornering and it is fully heightadjustable. Furthermore, the aerodynamic components of the 1-Series M Coupe by AC Schnitzer include a carbon front spoiler, chromed front grille, carbon rear diffusor and the AC Schnitzer design elements. The refinement of the interior is enhanced by the painted centre console and interior trim dressed in "Valencia Orange", the "Black Line" aluminum gear knob from AC Schnitzer, while one can also add the AC Schnitzer aluminum foot rest and pedal set. The tuned car represents the ultimate in technology and style.
