BMW Z4 E89
The Z4 Roadster by AC Schnitzer
We are delighted to welcome the latest member of the BMW family and with its extensive product range the BMW Z4 by AC Schnitzer is ready for its world premiere. The Aachen-based tuning specialist has further optimized the brand-new classic from BMW, which has already received extensive accolades from the trade press. In the second generation Z4, BMW has moved away from the classic Roadster top. The new BMW Z4 to be launched in May 2009 – instead of its “soft cap” – has a folding hard top, making it a Roadster and Coupe in one.
Engine tuning and performance upgrades have a long tradition at AC Schnitzer. To be on the safe side however, we prefer not to extract the maximum possible power but instead ensure greater robustness, which means a longer life of the engine. Many of our diesel performance upgrades are therefore designed for an increase in torque rather than an increase in horsepower. Because torque is what you feel when for example you’re “pressed back in the seat” on pulling away. The driving experience is enhanced acoustically and visually by the stainless steel sports rear silencer and the chromed Racing tailpipe trims.
Equally sporting is the AC Schnitzer suspension variant in the Z4. Thanks to a new spring kit, the transverse acceleration appears to bypass the conventional laws of nature.
The aerodynamic pack for the new BMW Z4 consists of a chrome front grille and front spoiler, where both components combine to give a more muscular look to the long bonnet lines. New sports fenders, consisting of wheel arches with integral air outlets for improved cooling of the front brakes and chromed deflectors, optimize the side lines of the roadster. Finally, the two-piece rear spoiler gives the rear of the BMW Z4 by AC Schnitzer an impressive look; because of the performance of the car, this is probably the aspect which will be seen most by other drivers!
In the inside, both driver and passenger enjoy an impressive interior. The aluminum cover for the i-Drive System Controller, the aluminum foot rests and pedal set, are just a few of the ergonomically perfect controls which give the vehicle elegance and enhance the sporting ambience.
The BMW Z4 program by AC Schnitzer is ready for its world premiere. The Aachen-based tuning specialist has further optimised the brand-new classic from BMW, which has already received extensive accolades from the trade press. This vehicle is for enthusiastic drivers who can never have enough power. Still, AC Schnitzer upgrades the Z4 3.5i Turbo to 286 km/h. With a power of 360 HP and a weight of 1485 kg, the open-top roadster from BMW accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. Even the most demanding driver will be delighted with this performance.
