Body kit, wheels and 420 HP: AC Schnitzer works its magic on the new BMW M4

In designing the new 4 Series Coupe, BMW went out on a limb to make it unique and unlike the 3 Series. Aftermarket supplier AC Schnitzer could not stay away, of course, and is now following up with a wide range of accessories and power upgrades.

In designing the new 4 Series Coupe, BMW went out on a limb to make it unique and unlike the 3 Series. Aftermarket supplier AC Schnitzer could not stay away, of course, and is now following up with a wide range of accessories and power upgrades.

Owners of the 430i spec may have their engines boosted from the stock 258 PS (254 hp / 190 kW) to 300 PS (296 hp / 221 kW). The torque will simultaneously rise from 400 to 470 Nm (295 to 347 lb-ft).

With a bit of tuning, the gas-powered M440i xDrive will go from 374 PS (369 hp / 275 kW) to 420 PS (414 hp / 309 kW). The maximum torque gets a bump from 500 to 600 Nm (369 to 443 lb-ft). Those who drive the diesel M440d xDrive version will have to wait until a kit becomes available, though.

To highlight the power increase, you may opt for a stainless-steel exhaust system with either chrome or black carbon fiber tips. In-house lowering springs can be used to drop the ride height by between 15 and 25 mm (0.6” – 1”). As far as the wheels, the shop supplies AC1 BiColor sets sized 19” and 20” finished in silver, anthracite grey and black (you choose the combination).

An aerodynamic kit is also on the list with a front splitter, three spoilers and side skirts. You can protect the rear end against scratches with a wrap, and put AC Schnitzer logos on the body and into the cabin. Interior niceties also include aluminum paddle shifters, pedal pads, key holder and side steps. The items listed in this paragraph will not be available until June 2021, however.

We are all used to seeing an endless stream of supercars, stock cars and drag strip kings racing each other in a straight line. If you’d rather watch something different, look no further than this race between an Oshkosh HEMTT army eight-wheeler and a Ford F-450 trailer towing three other cars.

Tuner Brabus made an obscenely expensive and unique custom car based on the Mercedes 190 E (W201) back in the late 1980s, and a mere replica of it is now on sale for €100,000. Not to worry, though: it is more authentic than the original. Look, just read on.

How does one go about packing eight cylinders inside a tiny two-seater? Easy! Just put four cylinders under the hood and the other four into the trunk. What do you mean, “crazy”?
