Ravaging through the archives at AC Schnitzer tuning we find that they’ve got quite the brochure to talk about when it comes to the X6 SAV.
The M division prepped version is also a big hit with the specialist tuner so it is pretty much impossible to ignore. The basic cars may be related, but the AC Schnitzer makeovers seem to be completely different.
There’s a generally familiar look but the details are much more focused on this version. The X6 M doesn’t have the Falcon’s compromised exterior.
Everything here is styled as form dictates in order to achieve the best type of performance and aerodynamic efficiency. The paint and alloy wheels sum up what you can specify in terms of looks.
AC Schnitzer have setup the car for a blistering performance by revising the aerodynamics, the suspension setups and so on yet they aren’t ready to tell us what’s in store with the engine.
The S63 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine has been out for quite a while now and we thought they had sufficient time to produce a remarkably fast car by now.
We’re willing to cut them some slack because of the recent performance they managed in the 2012 DTM season but as that’s over now they should chop to it.
It’s not like the X6 is an unpopular car and it’s certainly not that the X6 M is the sort of car that rich punters don’t want to have one that’s faster and more aggressive looking.
