AC Schnitzer revealed today their aftermarket program for the BMW M135i hatchback which will debut at 2012 Essen Motor Show. Powered by a six-cylinder 3.0 liter engine, the M135i produces in standard form 320 horsepower. The tuned up version by AC Schnitzer takes the power output to an impressive 360 horsepower which coupled with a compact form factor, gives the M135i super performance. Maximum torque climbs from 450 to 520 Newton meters.
The extra power is achieved by AC Schnitzer through a remapped ECU, custom chrom exhaust system with four tailpipes, and possible an optimized intake system.
Besides the performance improvement, the Aachen-based tuning program includes a spring kit, front spoiler attachments (for all F2x with M Sport package), a roof spoiler (for all F20/F21) and 18, 19 or 20-inch light alloy wheels in various colors and styles.
Inside AC Schnitzer includes the typical aluminum gear knob with a digital display, and other aluminum parts that give the car a sportier look.
AC Schnitzer has yet to release the pricing for these upgrades.
