AC Schnitzer studio unveils tuning kit for M8 Gran Coupe Competition
German workshop AC Schnitzer has developed a stylish body kit for the four-door sedan BMW M8 Gran Coupe Competition. Also, experts suggest reconfiguring the suspension, replacing the exhaust and rims, as well as boosting the engine to 95 horsepower and 100 Nm of torque.
The AC Schnitzer aerodynamic kit for the M8 Gran Coupe sedan is less extravagant than the two-year-old body kit for the regular 8-Series coupe – the designers limited themselves to installing a small front splitter, graceful carbon skirts and a compact two-piece spoiler. The wheel profile is also increased – custom 21-inch wheels are combined with Pirelli tires measuring 275/30 R21 at the front and 285/30 R21 at the rear.
Intervention in the technical stuffing is limited to chip-tuning the engine and replacing the standard suspension springs with sports ones with an underestimation of 15-20 millimeters. Special firmware and installation of an AC Schnitzer exhaust system with electronically controlled dampers allows to increase the output of the Competition version from 625 horsepower and 750 Nm to 720 horsepower and 850 Nm, and the “regular” M8 can be pumped up to 700 horsepower and 850 Nm.
The kit from AC Schnitzer for the BMW M8 is not a record one: colleagues from G-Power are ready to pump the G8 up to 820 horsepower and 1000 Nm, and the Manhart studio can squeeze 823 horse power and 1050 Nm from a 4.4-liter engine. However, it is possible that the boost to 720 horsepower from AC Schnitzer is only the first level of improvements.
