Where "rebirth" of the BMW 6-series awakened deep emotions, the new BMW M6 is the embodiment of ultimate driving machine. The concept of combining two excellent cars in one model has already been successfully implemented by the BMW engineers in the M5. Now it’s a question of adapting this new design line for the BMW M6.
In principle, there’s no doubt that "the newcomer" is the worthy successor to the legendary CoupÃ© from the 80s - the 6-series, with internal reference E63/E64, in any case has the potential of a legend: performance, elegance and dynamics.
The figure "507" has been legendary in BMW history for many years. More precisely since 1956, when A. Graf Goertz created an automotive dream, the BMW 507 roadster. Today the figure "507" again has a magic significance: this time not as a model designation but as the impressive HP figure of the new BMW V10 engine.
The 3-series offers a superb basis for creating an AC Schnitzer ACS3 from an already excellent BMW. It is precisely this challenge which currently faces engineers and designers from Ac Schnitzer. They are developing a range which on completion will leave nothing to be desired. The first challenge is to develop a performance upgrade for the 2.0d. This will comprise a special Control Unit Program and take the power of the M47D20 TU standard engine to around 147 kW / 200 HP.
The BMW 3er Touring is here, and AC Schnitzer offers a sports range for the new estate model E91. The product range includes aerodynamic components in elegant sports design, performance upgrades and rear silencers, alloy wheels in various styles and sizes, specially set up suspension solutions and countless interesting accessories for the interior. As for all current models with 2.0d engine (M47 D20 TU) we also offer our diesel performance upgrade for the 3-series Touring. An extra control module provides a total of 147 kW / 200 HP and 400 Nm maximum torque.
For the 1.8d and the 2.0d versions of the BMW 1-series, AC Schnitzer diesel performance upgrades are already in development, taking the power - depending on engine model - up by around 25 - 30 HP. Despite the stronger power plant, the high running comfort, moderate fuel consumption and excellent stability of course remain unchanged.
