2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 Interior. The interior of 2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 consist of BiColor leather interior (green and perforated Nappa leather) in combination with black suede with green stitching, and interior trim strips in matt Classic Racing Green, continue the extreme performance of the ACL2 in the interior. AC Schnitzer Carbon racing bucket seats in BiColor, with black/green Nappa leather and carbon look leather with ACL2 logo, the AC Schnitzer “Evo” 3-spoke sports airbag steering wheel in Nappa and perforated leather, green suede indicator, and carbon door handles and centre console, show that design and aesthetics are another key area of competence for the AC Schnitzer experts.
2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 has control display, showing e.g. oil temperature, intake air temperature, boost pressure etc., and an AC Schnitzer combi-instrument with speed display up to 330 km/h (in preparation) visually disclose the technical finesse of the concept vehicle in the interior. Naturally, the familiar but extraordinary tuning components for the interior are not lacking: AC Schnitzer keyholder, aluminium pedal set, aluminium foot rests with illuminated AC Schnitzer logo, “Black Line” aluminium gear knob and “Black Line” aluminium handbrake handle, together with velours foot mats with AC Schnitzer logo, are supplemented in the ACL2 with door sill strips showing the ACL2 logo.
2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 Exterior. 2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 wheelarch extensions on the front, with air outlet openings in the wheelarch and three air deflector wings on each side also enhance the powerful look. This is further reinforced by the AC Schnitzer rear wheelarch extensions with air inlet opening and two air outlet openings on the wheelarch, together with two air deflector wings on each side. These conversions add 140 mm to the width of the standard vehicle, 70 mm on each side.
2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL carbon bonnet with Bonnet Vents in black, and special features such as the special paintwork in Classic Racing Green and the AC Schnitzer special “Racing” sports mirrors, visually complete the extensive tuning package for the bodywork. The standard axles and carbon strut braces are also borrowed from the M4, and work with the height adjustable AC Schnitzer Clubsport suspension and support bearings for optimal handling.
The sportingly set suspension is supported aerodynamically by a skirt to optimise air flow, with AC Schnitzer carbon front spoiler elements, AC Schnitzer front splitter and carbon front side wings (two per side). The rear of the ACL2 also appears beyond the M-standard: AC Schnitzer carbon rear diffuser, carbon “Racing“ rear wing with Gurney flap and special fixing feet (250 mm clear of the boot) demonstrate that less weight really can be more – without having to sacrifice impressive aesthetics.
2016 AC Schnitzer BMW M 235i ACL2 Engines and Transmission. The speedo needle of this exceptional vehicle can be held safely in check thanks to 6-pot fixed caliper brakes on the front with 400 x 38 mm carbon ceramic brake discs (drilled) and 4-pot brakes on the rear with 380 x 28 mm carbon ceramic discs (drilled).
More power under the bonnet is also ensured by the AC Schnitzer downpipe, which further boosts power and torque. The AC Schnitzer sports exhaust system with special catalytic converter (200 cpsi) combined with AC Schnitzer “Racing EVO Carbon” tailpipes in right/left combination provides breath-taking acoustic performance – not only at the Geneva International Motor Show.
The replacement of the standard axles on the M 235i and the upgrade to M4 technology, together with the fully height-adjustable AC Schnitzer Clubsport suspension which also offers full adjustment of compression and rebound stages, mean that you can sense the thrust of the ACL2 even at a standstill. AC Schnitzer support bearings and the bodywork-stiffening M4 carbon strut braces bring motorsport uncompromisingly onto the road.
