AC Schnitzer takes a clean sweep with four first places in reader awards

Once again, BMW tuner AC Schnitzer has achieved a spectacular quadruple victory in the reader survey of the renowned journal "sport auto" amongst 16,953 fans of sporting motor vehicles.

The fact that AC Schnitzer is highly regarded has been confirmed twice by the readers, with over all wins in the "Best Brands" categories of "Engine Tuning"" (48.0%) and "Styling Tuning" (36.4%). In the categories for engine/performance upgrades and aerodynamic conversions, the readers of "sport auto“ recognized AC Schnitzer's highest competence.

As well as Best Brands, the readers also chose their favourites from 235 vehicles. 

In the "Tuning - Diesel vehicles" category, the "AC Schnitzer ACS1 5.0d" and in the "Sedans/Station wagons up to 80.000 €" category the "M3 by AC Schnitzer" gave AC Schnitzer an undisputed victory with the highest overall score in both categories.

In addition, the "MINI John Cooper Works" won out against all other BMW tuners in the class for "Small Cars". The sporting MINI took third place and as such becomes the highest-placed BMW Group car.

Rainer Vogel, Managing Director of AC Schnitzer is delighted. "Such a convincing result is the best present AC Schnitzer could have received. It confirms that we must maintain our philosophy and keep developing new and innovative function components for BMW, MINI and recently also for Land Rover vehicles. Our innovations always have true added value for the customer, our quality terms are at least equal to their series counterpart – and usually, the quality standards we impose on our special accessories are even higher. Our thanks to our loyal fans and of course the readers of "sport auto" for these awards.“

Rainer Vogel, AC Schnitzer General Manager
