AC Schnitzer BMW 5-Series F10

The German model, the BMW 5-series saloon received a tuning program from AC Schnitzer. The specialists offered new dynamic BMW extra wings with its extensive range of special accessories. Thanks to the upgrades on the 530d, the driver can enjoy 286 horsepower and not only 245 horsepower like before. The BMW 550i, 535i, 535d and 530d are equipped with the twin sports rear silencer that brings an improved response behavior from the engine and not just the sporting sound. The spring kit lowers the vehicle by 25 mm, but also gives the entire suspension set-up a more sporting tone without neglecting the comfort requirements of the passengers. The 8-piston high-performance brake system grips the front axle. The perforated, internally vented brake discs provide greatly improved deceleration and even safer stopping for the vehicle. The tuner also offers wheels in different designs and with different wheel and tire combinations. Before the development of the aerodynamic kit, the AC Schnitzer designers and engineers have picked up the contours of the new 5-series saloon and subtly emphasized this. The result is a striking look of the BMW 5-series. The rear skirt insert integrates the sports exhaust harmoniously and together with the rear roof spoiler and rear spoiler makes the entire rear end more powerful. The carbon interior trim and the carbon sill trim set in black ensure just the right distinction from the standard look. The interior range developed by the tuner includes the aluminum cover for i-Drive System Controller, aluminum foot rests and pedals set, and gear knobs in leather or digital gear display. The new BMW 5-series saloon has been in the showrooms of the BMW dealers since May 2010. Its best feature is the dynamism offered by AC Schnitzer specialists.
