The AC Schnitzer Program for the BMW M5 F90

Still under development, in the absolute prototype stage: that's how the M5 by AC Schnitzer was sent on the Sachsenring round. It hadn't completed a meter on the track before - the increase in performance was brand-new and hadn't been tested either. The built-in aerodynamics was only available as a sample parts program. At that time, all parts that were later manufactured in carbon were "only" used as painted GRP parts. It was a risk. We decided to take it and despite this early project phase to face the direct comparison with the M5 series and some competitors.
