The guys from AC Schnitzer have been tuning cars for a long time but rarely do they actually get their hands dirty and actually modify the cars’ engines mechanically. Sure, ECU tunes have been on the table from ACS for quite some time now, but the tuning powerhouse prefers to keep the engines stock otherwise, in order to allow their customers to preserve their warranty.

Well, that’s not the case for the car we’re about to show you today. AC Schnitzer wasn’t the only tuner that worked on it either, the car being brought into the U.S. and then shipped over to the guys from European Auto Source where it received all of its modifications, including those done to the engine.
As you can see, the BMW M4 received the complete AC Schnitzer works. Starting life as a simple DCT-fitted, Austin Yellow M4, the car was then equipped with AC Schnitzer’s carbon fiber front spoiler elements, F80-F82 front splitter, front side wings made of the same material as well as a rear diffuser and a racing rear wing. IND chipped in with prepainted front bumper reflectors while the BMW M Performance catalogue provided the side blades in gloss black, mirror caps, kidney grilles and sidemarkers.
Leaving the exterior aside, the car also received Sparco seats inside and the complete AC Schnitzer package made up of aluminum handbrake handle “Black Line”, aluminum pedal set, foot rest and black floor mats. The BMW GTS steering wheel and AWRON gauge make things a lot more interesting once you sit in the driver’s seat.
On the performance side of things, this M4 is now putting down 600 HP at the wheels thanks to an ESS Stage II Turbo upgrade with a Stage II ECU flash along with Evolution Racewerks aluminum charge pipes and Eventuri carbon Kevlar intake system. The suspension was upgraded as well with a set of KW 2-way adjusting coilovers while taking the exhaust fumes from the engine bay to the rear end of the car falls in the ‘hands’ of the Akrapovic Evolution Titanium exhaust system and Evolution Racewerks catless downpipes. The Sparta Evolution TS260X Triton 6-Piston BBK, 380mm complete an awesome build.
