The 8 series by AC Schnitzer also improves exhaust system for the M850i. The AC Schnitzer sports rear silencers, including 2 exhaust flaps each with 2 carbon “Sport”, “Sport” or “Sport black” tail pipes (right/left combination, 4 pieces), enhance the already great sound of the top 8 Series model.
The lowering with AC Schnitzer suspension spring set (front / rear: each approx. 20 mm compared to the standard suspension) in combination with various aerodynamic components allows the 8 series to deliver a dynamic ride.
The AC Schnitzer 8 Series program for the 8 Series includes carbon front spoiler elements, front splitter (in connection with front spoiler elements), carbon front side wings, bonnet vents with carbon inserts, carbon side skirts and carbon rear diffuser as well as the rear spoiler.
There are also unusual details such as the AC Schnitzer brake light with frame for the carbon rear diffuser, the carbon “Racing” rear wing, the rear skirt protection foil and also the AC Schnitzer emblems in 160 mm (left-right).
Of course, the tuning specialists from Aachen also put the highest emphasis on quality in the interior and rely on proven and elegant features with the AC Schnitzer aluminum pedals, aluminum footrest and aluminum keyholder.
With so much luxury, the engineers at AC Schnitzer naturally do not let up when equipping the wheel arches of the BMW 8 series. The customer can choose from AC3 Lightweight Forged Wheels BiColor in silver/anthracite or anthracite/silver (front: 9.0J x 20″ with 245/35 R 20 tyres, rear: 10.0Jx 20″ with 275/30 R 20 tyres) or AC1 BiColor or anthracite Alloy Wheels (front: 8.5J x 20″ with 245/35 R 20 tyres, rear: 10.0J x 20″ with 285/30 R 20 tyres).
This should make the 8 series by AC Schnitzer a permanent member of the sporting high society.
