AC Schnitzer Upgrades BMW M8

BMW M8 Gran Coupe By AC Schnitzer 19

Own a BMW M8 Competition but feel it's a little too ordinary? Head to AC Schnitzer who will take it another level.

You'd think 460 kW and 750 Nm from a twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine would be sufficient for most, but if not, you can take your BMW M8 Competition to the folks at AC Schnitzer who offers a visual and performance overhaul. 

The tuning upgrades takes outputs up to 530 kW and 850 Nm, and the good news is the exhaust has been modified with an AC Schnitzer sports exhaust so you can now hear that engine sing its glorious song. It's not exactly quiet in its standard M8 form but the crew at Schnitzer have found ways to make it more productive - at least aurally.

AC Schnitzer also offers a suspension lowering kit that makes the car sit 20 mm lower at the front and 15 mm lower at the rear, giving it quite a stance and a bit of rake.

Visually, you can opt for different coloured exhaust tips, carbon side skirts, front splitter, carbon rear spoiler as well as 21-inch custom wheels.

AC Schnitzer offers the above services not just for the M8 Competition Coupe either and you can get the upgrades for the Cabriolet and Gran Coupe, as well as the non-Competition model.
