In principle, there’s no doubt that "the newcomer" is the worthy successor to the legendary Coupé from the 80s - the 6-series, with internal reference E63/E64, in any case has the potential of a legend: performance, elegance and dynamics.

In the first stage of development work, AC Schnitzer adapted the alloy and racing wheels for the new 6-series. The Type III wheels and the new Type IV design are already available today.

As well as various combinations in 19", the top versions of the Coupé and the Convertible can be fitted with Type IV racing rims in 21". This gives the following wheel/tyre combination: front 9.0J x 21" offset 14 with tyres 255/30 R 21 and rear 10.0J x 21" offset 23 with tyres 295/25 R 21. With just this measure the driving dynamics are perceptibly improved. AC Schnitzer recommends high performance tyres from Continental and Michelin.

In addition, the avant-garde AC Schnitzer Type IV 5-spoke wheels with their spokes running in a star from the pentagonal wheel centre, and one dish per spoke, are an excellent match for the modern timeless design of the 6-series. Optional chrome elements can be inserted in the dishes for extra highlights.


The driving properties of the ACS6 E64 become even more sporting with the AC Schnitzer sports suspension which has undergone extensive tests on both public roads and on the North Loop of the Nürburgring. As well as lowering by around 25 mm, this suspension makes the 6-series sports-stiff with maximum comfort.


AC Schnitzer developed special aerodynamic conversions for the Coupé and Convertible, consisting of a front spoiler in the new sporting design, sports mirrors, side skirts, rear spoiler and a rear skirt. The aerodynamic range is completed by the Chromeline Set, which gives further chrome highlights if desired.

Another brilliant highlight which is perfectly integrated in the rear skirt is the twin sports rear silencer system with its 2 chromed tailpipes in TrapMent style (combination of trapezium and segment). This exhaust system naturally is not only an eyecatcher but also optimizes exhaust gas flow, ensuring improved response and giving the V8 a particularly sonorous "voice."


Exclusivity is the also keyword in the ACS6 E64 cockpit: As well as a carbon-fiber interior trim in "Exclusive Design" in silver and an ergonomically designed airbag sports steering wheel, the aluminium accessories, e.g. for the controller of the BMW "i-Drive system" and the pedal set and footrests, provide finishing touches.
