AC Schnitzer Transforms BMW M2 with Upgrades

Upgrades for Suspension, Exhaust, & Wheels

The impressive and renowned AC Schnitzer have recently shifted their focus to the all-new BMW M2, exhibiting an exotic aerodynamic kit along with other modifications to the model built in Mexico.

Not only is the revised design aesthetically pleasing, but it also improves performance. Just take a look at the front splitter as an example, it boosts downforce on the Bimmer’s front axle by 132 pounds which adds a small sense of intimidation to the car’s face. The new canards and wings that are situated within the intake slots perfectly complement the retouched hood with its black graphic embellishment that illustrates the M2’s impressive potency.

Side skirts, also clothed in black, connect the front and back of the M2. To complete the rear fascia, it has been incorporated with a carbon fibre race wing increasing the rear downforce by 121lbs. If you’re seeking higher speed stability, AC Schnitzer provides an included gurney flap amassing up to 176lbs of rear downforce.

The AC4 Lightweight Forged design, replacing the conventional body kit, is an asset in terms of functionality. It can reduce unsprung mass up to 35%, compared to regular M2 wheels, and it is also more light-weight in construction. Consequently, this feature should lead to a boost in acceleration and braking through its lighter massiness. As suggested by AC Schnitzer, this new design will help to refine the already optimal driving dynamics.

The tuner has introduced a distinctive staggered wheel and tire pack, consisting of 285/30 R20 tires up front, coupled with 295/25 R21s at the rear. An all-around 20-inch wheel and tire arrangement is also available. Techgold and glossy black are among the finishes provided.

No engines upgrades are available just yet, as AC Schnitzer is still in the process of crafting its own in-house tunes. This is no issue, however, as the stock turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six providing 453 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque is more than satisfactory. Power is then sent to the rear axles using either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.

Modifications have been done to the M2’s suspension, and there is a novel exhaust system for the S58 engine to facilitate air ventilation.

The M2, enhanced with the AC Schnitzer RS coilover suspension, has become an incredibly precise driving machine. Additionally, customers can customize the ride height – thanks to a full adjustability of both rebound and compression damping. According to the tuner, this results in a lowering capacity of between 0.98 and 1.37 inches at the front, and 0.78 and 1.18 inches at the rear.

Regarding the exhaust, the M2 is equipped with an AC Schnitzer system that features Carbon Sport accents on the 4.33-inch tailpipes. The “flap control” system allows drivers to adjust the sound level, enabling them to enjoy the full experience on a racetrack but not disturb their neighbours when they get back home.

At long last, we’ve reached the inner chamber. Replacing the watstock steering wheel is an Alcantara/Nappa leather-wrapped AC Schnitzer wheel spotlighted by unobtrusive gray stitching and decorated with specific grips crafted for the motorist’s thumbs. Additionally, larger aluminum shift paddle controls and other aluminium interior detailing are included in the arrangement.
