Aachen-based tuner AC Schnitzer launches their program for the new MINI Coupe. The sporty looking coupe is not yet fully taking advantage of the company’s comprehensive tuning packages, but more updates are expected in the near future.
The MINI Coupe comes fitted with a set of 18-inch diameter Mi2 bi-color alloy wheels can be fitted with 225/30, 215/35 or 205/40 tires or, alternatively, customers can opt for the company’s classic five spoke Mi1 alloy wheel in a 17-inch diameter.
To improve handling, AC Schnitzer includes their own limited slip differential, height-adjustable racing suspension kit, aluminum strut tower brace and rear axle anti-roll bar.
Performance enhancements include chip tuning for all models and stainless steel rear silencer or complete exhaust system for the Cooper S and John Cooper Works versions.
A high performance braking system is made available for the MINI Coupe: 4-piston fixed calipers with slotted discs, upgraded brake pads, caliper holder and braided steel brake lines.
Moving inside, there is a set of aluminum pedals, suede floor mats, a gear knob with digital gear display, “Black Line” handbrake cover, foot rests, handbrake handle and velours foot mats.
