The AC Schnitzer tuning program for the BMW i8 (i12)
Driving Pleasure Made Easy
AC Schnitzer launches the BMW i8 with Carbon Aerodynamic Accessories
The most advanced sports car of our time has now been optimised further by some AC Schnitzer innovations. At the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2017, the Aachen-based tuning specialist will launch the plug-in hybrid BMW i8 from Munich with new carbon aerodynamic components and special livery.
When it comes to wheel sets, the Aachen company has come up with another innovation: the lightweight AC1 Forged Alloy Wheels in BiColor or Anthracite were specially developed for the sports car, combining hybrid looks with sporting design. Compared with the BMW Turbinenstyling 625 in 20", the wheels (front 8.5J x 21" and rear 9.5J x 21") save a good 4.4 kg in weight and therefore improve the transverse dynamics.
Fitted with corresponding tyres (245/35 R 21 front and 285/30 R 21 rear) and optional wheel painting in any colour desired, AC Schnitzer once again demonstrates that over 30 years of innovation have guided company philosophy, and that sporting performance and style can always be revolutionised into something new.
