As with the first BMW i8 tuning package from AC Schnitzer, the new edition is all about carbon. The carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic finally fits perfectly into the sports car and its passenger compartment is made of the lightweight high-tech material, which, despite the elaborate hybrid technology and lithium-ion battery, only weighs around 1.5 tonnes for an electrical range of 37 kilometers.
The i8 by AC Schnitzer, with 25 mm lowering at the front and 20 mm at the rear, is significantly closer to the road than the standard vehicle, ensuring greater stability in all cornering situations.AC Schnitzer carbon front spoiler elements, carbon side skirts and carbon Racing rear wing ensure that driving pleasure can be fully enjoyed on acceleration from both the powerful petrol engine and the hybrid electric motor.
The wheel set was also developed in the light of the lightweight design, because the ACS1 forged wheels in 21 inches are 4.4 kg lighter than the BMW wheels in the Turbine style 625.
Aluminum pedal set, aluminum footrest and floor mats of velours emphasize the light touch of the interior design, and at the same time highlight the sophisticated look of the i8 by AC Schnitzer.
