The German tuning firm shows off two tuned examples of BMW's most popular models.
German tuning firm AC Schnitzer wasted no time in getting their hands on a pair of BMW's latest models: the M5 and the newly redesigned 3-Series. Called the ASC5 Sport, their tuned M5 sedan boasts a total of 620hp and 583lb-ft of torque from its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. In addition, they've given it a new sport suspension system, 21-inch forged wheels and an aerodynamic kit consisting of a carbon fiber front spoiler and diffuser, chrome grille, and a rear spoiler.
Painted in a matte blue paint, we think it's a simple yet elegant interpretation of what's already the world's finest super sports sedan. In addition to the ASC5 Sport, AC Schnitzer also brought along their upgraded 3-Series. Starting with the base 328i, the tuner did a performance upgrade to its 2.0-liter I4, bringing output up to 295hp and 302lb-ft of torque. Other enhancements include chrome ‘racing' tailpipes, a suspension spring kit, and upgraded 20-inch rims. The interior features aluminum pedals, handbrake, and footrest. All told, the tuner claims they wanted to give the 328i more dynamism and sportiness.
