TUNE IT! SAFE! Police BMW X4 20i by AC Schnitzer

For the fourth time now, AC Schnitzer has been involved in equipping a campaign vehicle for the TUNE IT! SAFE! initiative by the Association of German Vehicle Tuners e.V. (VDAT), which celebrates its 10th birthday in 2014.

Every year since 2004, a special police concept vehicle has been presented which meets both the high demands of tuning fans and maximum safety standards.

For the fourth time, BMW specialist AC Schnitzer has taken the lead in converting this police car as part of the campaign which is supported by the Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Development.

The Technic of the TUNE IT! SAFE! Police BMW X4 20i by AC Schnitzer

Candidates for police service are tested for their performance. The same applies to the BMW X4 20i, which in the TUNE IT! SAFE! variant by AC Schnitzer can expect a performance upgrade from 184 to 245 hp. The top speed limitation at 212 km/h doesn't hamper the X4 in the pursuit of offenders: the vehicle accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds, and on longer pursuits takes only 17.5 seconds to increase its speed from 80 to 180 km/h. The AC Schnitzer engine styling shows that the concept car convincingly passed the police performance test.

The sonorous note comes courtesy of the AC Schnitzer silencer with 2 chromed "Sport“ tailpipe trims each side in right/left combination, perfectly integrated into the rear diffuser.


The Suspension Technology of the TUNE IT! SAFE! Police BMW X4 20i by AC Schnitzer

Suspension components from AC Schnitzer improve driving comfort, dynamics and safety. Essential requirements for this is that the wheels always have contact with the ground, and that road-holding, cornering stability, braking and steering safety are guaranteed.

Of course the spring kit of the X4 by AC Schnitzer was tested on the North Loop of the Nürburging as well as on public roads.


The Wheels of the TUNE IT! SAFE! Police BMW X4 20i by AC Schnitzer

AC Schnitzer Type V Forged alloys in anthracite, in conjunction with corresponding tyres in 265/30 R 22, keep the police BMW X4 20i TUNE IT! SAFE! by AC Schnitzer safely on the road.

There are many AC Schnitzer light alloy and racing Wheels available for the X4.

A further advantage for tricky situations is provided by the aerodynamic products from Aachen: 

AC Schnitzer front spoiler elements, rear diffuser (both for vehicles with M-Technik pack) and AC Schnitzer carbon mirror covers make the police BMW X4 20i TUNE IT! SAFE! by AC Schnitzer a worthy opponent.

But to warn other road users even more clearly of the approaching police vehicle, there are the special police "RTK 7" signalling system and flashing lights from Hella which come in AC Schnitzer design.


The Interior of the TUNE IT! SAFE! Police BMW X4 20i by AC Schnitzer

In the interior, the guardians of law and order can enjoy aluminium pedals, foot rest and "Black Line" handbrake handle, and the new key holder. Velours floor mats complete the interior styling. The concept car impressively demonstrates large parts of the AC Schnitzer tuning range, all of which are available commercially and of course homologated.
