Engine tuning and performance upgrades have a long tradition at AC Schnitzer. To be on the safe side however, we prefer not to extract the maximum possible power but instead ensure greater robustness, which means a longer life of the engine. Many of our performance upgrades are therefore designed for an increase in torque rather than an increase in horsepower. Because torque is what you feel when for example you're "pressed back in the seat" on pulling away.
For engines and performance upgrades, we offer a warranty of two years from the date of first registration, up to a kilometre reading of 100,000 km (for M-vehicles, two years up to a kilometre reading of 60,000 km) on all components excluded from the BMW warranty.
Powerful, dynamic, elegant yet totally suitable for everyday use: these are the adjectives which perfectly describe the 6-series Coupé by AC Schnitzer.
The largest of the available BMW power plants from the 650i has undergone a performance upgrade from 407 (standard) to 500 HP. Now the eight-cylinder engine races from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
This is complemented by the AC Schnitzer engine and engine bay styling, which demonstrates the power of the motor even when stopped. Complete with AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer including chromed "Sport Trim" tailpipes right and left, the 650i can be seen and above all heard from behind, too.
For the export market, the Aachen-based tuning experts have developed an 8-piston high performance brake system for the front, to match the increased drive power. The 8-piston fixed calipers on the right and left, the 8-piece set of brake linings and the caliper holders together ensure that the "Bavarian Coupé" scrubs off the speed rapidly and safely.
