Lightbulb 2012 Geneva: AC Schnitzer F30 328i

2012 Geneva: AC Schnitzer F30 328i

The BMW 328i Saloon by AC Schnitzer

It's still quite new on the market but already has many admirers: In February, the new BMW 3- series was launched officially. Now the smart, energetic Bavarian is winning even more hearts at the international Motor Show in Geneva - helped by the tuning specialists at AC Schnitzer.

The Aachen-based experts from AC Schnitzer help the 3-series make an even more impressive appearance with a performance upgrade for the BMW 328i. An extra control unit allows it to deliver 217 kW/ 295 HP and a maximum torque of 410 Nm onto the asphalt, and with its governed top speed of 250 km/h the 3-series by AC Schnitzer tightens the bonds to its driver. As appearances are also important, these inner values are reflected in the AC Schnitzer engine styling.

The saloon makes itself heard with the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer with two chromed "Racing“ tailpipes in right/left combination.

In the 328i by AC Schnitzer, you ride out life's ups and downs on the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit. In combination with lowering, this ensures that you can never lose ground adhesion even on turbulent, twisty events. This is guaranteed with the AC Schnitzer wheels Type IV BiColor and silver, Type VI and Type VIII in 18 to 20 inch, which form a solid yet sporting and elegant basis for the wheelarches.

A new addition to the AC Schnitzer range is the Type VIII wheel in BiColor silver. This comes in 18, 19 and 20 inch and impresses with its sporting elegance. The colouring - lacquered silver with bright turned aluminium accents - makes it appear even larger.

The ACS3 reveals its inner values with the AC Schnitzer "Black Line“ aluminium cover for the BMW "i-Drive“ system controller, the "Black Line“ aluminium handbrake handle, the aluminium pedal set, foot rests and floot mats in velours. But that's not all:

The aerodynamic components from AC Schnitzer make the already excellent standard model into a vehicle with even more dynamism and sporting ambitions. The AC Schnitzer front spoiler, chromed front grille, rear roof spoiler, rear spoiler and rear skirt extension, complemented by designer stripes, can already be admired in Geneva but will only be available commercially from summer 2012. This delay will certainly not harm the perfect partner for "driving life" for many fans: after all, you don't give everything away on the first date!

The gains look great, but the styling is the opposite...
