AC Schnitzer unveils their BMW M2 project with even more lightness, sporting performance and dynamics. The M2 now produces 420 horsepower from the standard 370, thanks to the optional AC Schnitzer chargecooler which increases the efficiency of the engine for maximum motorsport feeling and provides a sustained, smooth power delivery.

In the exhaust system, the BMW tuners from Aachen again add “a little something”. The AC Schnitzer silencer with valve control, complete with two “Sport” or “Sport black” tailpipes in right/left combination (also in the export version) provides the striking, sonorous sound of a professional athlete. The “Sport” and “Sport black” tailpipe trims are also available individually.
To improve the handling, AC Schnitzer upgrades the M2 with its in-house RS coilovers. Fully height-adjustable, with compression and rebound setting and lowering by 30 – 40 mm, the system is designed for both relaxed cruising and for fast cornering and sprints. The AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit, with lowering by 25 – 30 mm at the front and 15 – 20 mm at the rear, also provides maximum driving stability.
The exterior also goes through some changes. Lightweight body parts such as the AC Schnitzer carbon front side wings (2 pcs. per side), carbon “Racing” rear wing (export), carbon rear diffusor and carbon mirror cover are some of the changes made to the body.
Together with the AC Schnitzer front splitter and rear roof spoiler, they provide perceptibly more downforce and maximum stability at high speeds.
In the interior, you can find the usual AC Schnitzer aluminum pedal set, aluminum foot rest, keyholder and handbrake handle in silver or black. The AC Schnitzer aluminum cover for the BMW-specific i-Drive Controller and the velours footmats complete the interior concept.
The German tuner also offers custom 19 and 20 inch wheels developed in-house by AC Schnitzer. AC1 wheels or AC1 forged alloys in BiColor or matte anthracite, and Type VIII and Type V (BiColor or anthracite) forged alloys, are also available. Furthermore, Type VIII wheels (BiColor black, silver or anthracite) and Type IV rims in BiColor black can also be purchased.
