430HP AC Schnitzer BMW ACZ4 5 Concept Revealed

CARPHOTO-3515

AC Schnitzer (ACS) submits this tiny amount of outside the box thinking to your approval: can you imagine if someone swapped a torquey diesel motor into a Z4 sDrive 23i? What would that look like? And exactly how capable will it behas done just that, plopping a built BMW N57S turbocharged 3.-liter inline-6 diesel into the engine compartment of any E89. The mill reportedly makes 430 horsepower along with a whopping 619.5 lb.-ft. of torque, and routed through a swapped 8-speed automatic gearbox with pedal sports shift and rear axle gear and limited slip differential from an E92 M3 could goup the BMW ACZ4 5 Concept, and the wonders don’t stop at the engine bay. Curb weight is reduced some 120 pounds even with a heavier power plant, thanks in part to lightweight components like the 19-inch Type III forged alloy rims, lightweight exhaust silencer and CFC roof and boot lid.

Head onwith a racing suspension, fully adjustable in both compression and rebound, and slows/stops via a lightweight high-performance braking system in the beginning. Aero tweaks include carbon front spoiler and two-piece rear spoiler, while bits like the vented fenders and bonnet vents assist to maximize engine efficiency. Cabin upgrades contain aluminum pedals and footrest, velour floor mats, orange trim elements and carbonThe ACZ4 5.0d is a concept vehicle instead of for sale – but if it was actually would fetch in the ballpark of $121,000 in its current form, as outlined by ACS. However, AC Schnitzer will be supplying the brakes, interior, suspension, wheel and body set as part of its mod package for the Z4, as this project car had been a product development exercise.Directly Profile Head lights illuminated
