AC SCHNITZER BMW 6 SERIES GRAN COUPE
What do you do after BMW drops what might very well be the sexiest 4 door coupe ever? You send it over to AC Schintzer to have it worked out…that’s that!
For the new BMW 6-series Gran Coupé, the German aftermarket company has prepared a raft of upgrades including a power kit that boosts the output of the 640i’s 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six petrol from 316hp (320PS) to 355hp (360PS), and the 640d’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel from 309hp (313PS) to 355hp (360PS).
An available sports exhaust system with a set of chrome-trimmed tailpipes promises to make the more powerful engines sound the part.
AC Schnitzer bag of goods also includes a performance braking system with 8-piston fixed calipers and a sports suspension with a lowering spring kit.
The exterior gets some special treatment as well with a styling kit comprising a front spoiler, chromed upper and lower front grilles, an apron for the rear bumper and a selection of 19-, 20- and 21-inch alloy wheels in a choice of different designs. The 21-inch rollers are coupled to 255/30 R21 tires on the front axle and 295/25 R21 on the rear.
As for the interior, AC Schnitzer offers a bespoke steering wheel, aluminium footrests and pedals, floor mats and aluminum trim parts for the i-Drive system controller.
