AC Schnitzer BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe

Powerful dynamics, sporting performance and exclusive elegance in perfect form became available with the BMW 6-series Gran Coupé. Tuning fans can rejoice: once again AC Schnitzer has reinvented the top class four-door coupé.

Performance Upgrades

Engine tuning and performance upgrades have a long tradition at AC Schnitzer. To be on the safe side however, we prefer not to extract the maximum possible power but instead ensure greater robustness, which means a longer life of the engine. Many of our performance upgrades are therefore designed for an increase in torque rather than an increase in horsepower. Because torque is what you feel when for example you're "pressed back in the seat" on pulling away.

Warranty

For engines and performance upgrades, we offer a warranty of two years from the date of first registration, up to a kilometre reading of 100,000 km (for M-vehicles, two years up to a kilometre reading of 60,000 km) on all components excluded from the BMW warranty.

Engine

With a performance upgrade from 313 to 360 HP in the BMW 640d and from 320 to 360 HP in the 640i, AC Schnitzer again impressively demonstrates that there are no upper limits to dynamics and sporting performance. The concentrated power band widened by the Aachen specialists with intelligent technology is documented by the AC Schnitzer engine bay styling for the 6-series Gran Coupé.

Exhaust

The AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer with chromed "Sports Trim" tailpipes (right/left), also available in export version, provides the matching sound track.

Brakes

Deceleration too can be perfected. With the AC Schnitzer 8-piston high performance brake system for the front, the tuning experts have set new standards. The system - consisting of an 8-piston fixed caliper (left/right), the 8-piece set of brake pads and brake caliper holders - shows that even perfection can be improved.

The Suspension Technology

The same applies to the road-holding: the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit gives the already excellent driving dynamics a further boost.

The Bodywork

The bodywork components for the 6-series Gran Coupé by AC Schnitzer were designed by perfectionists for perfectionists:

  • front spoiler, chromed front grille with chrome strip
  • rear skirt extension and rear skirt protective film give the Coupé a bonus in sporting looks

The Interior

Perfect handling with corresponding Look and Feel is ensured by the "EVO" 3-spoke Sport Airbag steering wheel. Top class equipment comes as standard with the BMW 6-series Gran Coupé. With targeted highlights of aluminium, AC Schnitzer gives the interior a sophisticated finish. the "Black Line" aluminium cover for the i-Drive system controller, aluminium footrests and pedals, and velours floor mats give the interior even more exclusivity.

The Wheels

The coupé's wheelarches are filled with wheels of various styles (Type IV BiColor, Type IV silver, Type VIII BiColor, black and silver), in 19" or 20" depending on type.

Lightweight forged alloys and forged racing rims Type VIII BiColor are available in sizes 9.0 x 21" and 10.0 x 21" with 255/30 R 21 tyres on the front and 295/25 R 21 tyres on the rear.
