The German based AC Schnitzer tuner has prepared a special BMW 1-Series for a show-off at the 2015 Essen Motor Show, which is currently taking place in Germany.
We are dealing here with a heavily modified BMW 1-Series, which has received an upgraded M550d tri-turbo engine, found on the high-end M550d.
The 3.0-liter flat-six M550d engine is packing a good 400 horsepower and impressive 800 Nm of torque, which is enough to make it sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. The sprint from 80 to 180 km/h is also done in 7.9 seconds.
The BMW 1-Series by Schnitzer is also equipped with a new aero kit, consisting of a custom front apron, roof-mounted rear spoiler, side mirror caps from carbon fiber and the 18- or the 20-inch alloy wheels, with the 235-mm and 300mm rubbers front and rear.
The new set of wheels go hand in hand with the new suspension lowering springs or custom exhaust tips, which make the little 1-Series more spectacular and more aggressive. The cabin has also received metallic accents, aluminum pedals, as well as new gear knob and floor mats.
