AC Schnitzer Does its Thing on the BMW Z4 Roadster, 3.5i Turbo gets 360HP Upgrade

AC Schnitzer BMW Z4 0 AC Schnitzer Does its Thing on the BMW Z4 Roadster, 3.5i Turbo gets 360HP Upgrade
Longtime Bimmer specialist AC Schnitzer has created a detailed tuning package for the second generation BMW Z4 roadster. For the time being, under-the-hood upgrades are limited for the most powerful variant of the hardtop roadster model, the 3.5i. With AC Schnitzer’s upgrades, the modified twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter six delivers an ample 360 horsepower, launching the Z4 from a standing start to 100 km/h (62mph) in just 4.9 seconds, or 0.2 seconds faster than the standard 306HP Z4 3.5i.

A new spring kit for the suspension and a sport exhaust system with a pair of dual tailpipes complete the performance upgrades.

AC Schnitzer has also developed a subtle aerodynamic package that consists of a chrome front grille, front spoiler, new side air vents and a two-piece rear spoiler complemented by the firm’s 18-inch Type IV or 19- / 20-inch Type VI alloy wheels.

For the interior, visual upgrades include an aluminium cover for the i-Drive System Controller and the aluminium foot rests and pedal set.

2hov4i0 AC Schnitzer MINI Convertible Performance Package with up to 226HP
The new MINI Convertible has caught the attention of engineers from famed tuner AC Schnizter that have developed a comprehensive sport package for the drop top. The German firm started by tuning the MINI’s 1.6-liter turbocharged engine to produce a reported 208HP for the domestic market model and 226HP for the export model, up from the standard unit’s 175HP. At the same time, the Cooper S and JCW models get a limited slip differential and a sport exhaust system.

Sans the JCW model, the rest of the MINI Convertible range can be upgraded with a sport spring kit and height-adjustable racing suspension. Customers can also choose from a variety of alloy wheel designs available in sizes 17-inches, 18-inches and 19-inches.

Those not content with the MINI Cabrio’s exterior looks can opt for AC Schnitzer’s bodykit that includes the usual front and rear aprons and side skirts along with a set of decals available in white, black or chrome-black. For the interior, the German firm offers an array of accessories such as gear knobs, handbrake handle, pedals and foot rests in aluminum and special floor mats.

At first we thought that BMW tuning specialist AC Schnizter had released one of those tacky car vent fresheners that imitate the looks of an alloy wheel design. Well, we got the second part right as the German tuner has come up with a new, black anodized aluminium cover for the BMW i-Drive, u-Get Confused, infotainment system with an embossed image of an AC Schnitzer Type IV alloy wheel. No word on prices, but do you really want to accessorize your bimmer with one of these?
