2014 is now officially a significant year for BMW when AC Schnitzer decided to take the much celebrated BMW X5 F15 and gave it a facelift. The result is a vehicle whose equal is yet to be seen both in looks and performance. AC Schnitzer will be presenting it for the first time at the 84th Motor show in Geneva. More of what Schnitzer has done with car highlights its stylish appeal more and makes it even more enticing with noted changes in other parts except the looks.
Engine: The mammoth BMW X5 will be supporting 316 kW / 430 hp (standard 280 kW / 381 hp). With a legendary 386 kW / 525 hp (standard 330 kW / 450 hp), the X5 50i is one of the best Schnitzer product ever produced with the CO2 emissions remaining same. The engine really revs up and gives a nitro-boost-to-space feeling when you put the pedal to the floor, kudos to Schnitzer for making it so.
Exhaust: The high-performance exhaust speaks up with special thanks to the AC Schnitzer silencer of stainless steel with two “Racing“ tailpipe trims (in right/left combination). Also, the gas exhaust flow has been tuned up for functioning as a better quality respirator for the car with noted positive effects on the engine.
Suspension: Strong road grip with ease of driving is there because of the excellent AC Schnitzer Suspension Spring Kit which in turn gives lowering of 20mm for rear side and 30mm for the front side.
Wheels: BMW X5 F15 conquers the road with Type VIII forged racing rims wheel design in 21 or 22 inches, or in the Type VIII alloys in BiColor, Black or Silver in 20 inches. Type V forged alloys in BiColor or Anthracite in 22 inches also decorate the X5. Last but not least, Type IV rims in BiColor are available in 20 inches for the all-wheel drive.
Aerodynamics: The athletic look and feel of the All wheel drive is maintained with exterior modifications, notably, the front and rear skirt with an integrated rear diffuser which improves the air flow. It looks completed with the protective film in the rear.
Interior: Given luxury interior modification with high-quality seats, nothing but the best available with Schnitzer, raised seating position giving the occupant the best view of the road. Footrest and pedals are made up of high-quality aluminum paired with velours foot mats and AC Schnitzer keyholder.
