Welcome to AC Schnitzer

From motorsport to the road – for over 30 years, we've opened the door to superior vehicle technology for committed BMW, MINI and LAND ROVER drivers. Step beyond the series to AC Schnitzer and discover custom-designed components for those very special driving moments. This exclusive form of automotive driving dynamics is combined with unrestricted suitability for everyday use and surprising efficiency.

Efficient Performance by AC Schnitzer

In General

AC Schnitzer offers exclusively custom-made vehicle components for LAND ROVER vehicles. The vehicles shown are not new models developed by us, but technology platforms for our accessory components. Thanks to our flexible modular system, we can offer individual components, assemblies or complete conversions. All components are precisely matched to each other. Complete conversions achieve the best results in vehicle optimisation. We call such vehicles "genuine AC Schnitzer" and "enhance" these models with our logo and type designation.

Extensive AC Schnitzer Tuning Programme for the Range Rover Sport is now here!

AC Schnitzer celebrated a world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2014: the Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6 Diesel, complete with an extensive range of technical and aesthetic tuning products. These innovative solutions for the Range Rover Sport are now available for order from all Land Rover dealers in Germany and at around 20 locations across the world.

The exhaust gas flow of the Range Rover Sport is improved by fitting the AC Schnitzer stainless steel twin silencer with its two "Sports Trim“ tailpipes or four "Sport“ tailpipes (both in right/left combination). Visually, the exhaust pipes give a striking final touch.

The all-wheel drive model is more agile and manoeuvrable thanks to the AC Schnitzer lowering module, which offers a choice of lowering the Range Rover Sport by either 30 or 35 mm. The standard body lowering function is of course retained.

The Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer rolls along the road on Type VIII forged racing alloys in either 10.0J x 22 inch or 11.0J x 23 inch, and of course corresponding tyres (275/40 R 22 or 305/30 R 23 all round).

Alternatively, you could choose the Type V forged alloys in BiColor or anthracite in 10.0J x 22 inch with 275/40 R 22 tyres.

30% weight saving - reduced centrifugal forces - improved cornering and more driving fun. All these positive qualities are features of our forged alloy wheels. Depending on wheel style, they bring a weight saving of almost 20 kg on the vehicle.

Manfred Wollgarten, responsible for suspension set-up at AC Schnitzer, describes the effect on the driving sensation as: “20 kg unsprung mass less on the car is a huge amount. It feels like 100 kg - the car handles so much better immediately.”

A powerful, sporting presence with a striking silhouette is the result of the aerodynamic elements: the AC Schnitzer front and rear skirt with integral diffuser.

Complete skirts of high quality PU-Rim are fitted to both the front and rear sections - straightforward to install, they simply replace the entire standard component.

In the cockpit, the AC Schnitzer keyholder and velours foot mats in sophisticated design enhance the interior.

Now the benefits of AC Schnitzer tuning are no longer restricted just to BMW and MINI vehicles - the product programme for the Range Rover Sport is our first for the Land Rover marque, and we are already looking forward to further models!
