Cool AC Schnitzer 6 Series Gran Coupe

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I was interested in this tune up until I got the price from my dealer $20821 Well I guess my car is going to be one hell of an expensive 640i GC .

Tuning to Perfection
Infinitely good: The 6-series Gran Coupé by AC Schnitzer


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.

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

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

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, which is continued in the interior with the AC Schnitzer "Evo" sports 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 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.

Perfectionism is defined as striving for perfection. This is the goal of the experts at AC Schnitzer, and the 6-series Gran Coupé demonstrates that even good things can actually be improved further.

Engine: AC Schnitzer performance upgrades
for BMW 640d from 230 kW/313 HP to 264 kW/360 HP

This particular Gran Coupe looks HOT - when it's moving and a bit blurry...

Still the logo size is massive on that rear door, the front lip looks like it's injected with some gel hollywood stars use a lot, and the rims when stationary belong on an AMG SUV.

I can't figure out how these guys are in business after all these years.Who are their clients?

One would think the point of a tuning company is to improve on the original, but they almost never do that!

The value added component of this tuning company is limited (they produce bolt on parts that fit over the original, so it's a low cost process at the very least), yet I know that parts they produce cost a LOT. What gives?!

I gotta give to them though - they are consistent at least. Consistent at delivering a result that looks good - when blurry, that is.

I'd say AC Schnitzer has been conservative compared to before, which gives the car a cleaner look, I'll give them that. But still not a fan of those chrome grills.
