AC Schitzer is usually a BMW tuner, but it also shares a connection with the British brand that was formerly under Bavarian patronage – Land Rover. The 84th Geneva Motor Show premiered the extensively modified Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6.
This is the tuner’s first ever customizations package for the tuner so, naturally, they treated it with the utmost seriousness, featuring an extensive array of upgrades – new aerodynamic and design elements, new ally wheels, upgraded interior trim, suspension modifications or new sports stainless exhaust systems (two “Sports Trim“ tailpipes or four “Sport“ tailpipes).
The aerodynamic elements include new front and rear skirts with integrated rear diffuser, while the suspension setup lowers the ride height by up to 50 mm. While for the moment limited to the Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6 diesel model, the tuner is promising an extension of the packages to the other versions in the Sport line-up.
The engine was also tweaked, with the usual setup 215 kW / 292 hp / 600 Nm upgraded via the performance kit to a new level: 250 kW / 340 hp / 720 Nm. While any performance details have not been released by the tuner, AC Schnitzer proudly says that its upgrade has actually improved the CO2 emissions – which are lower per hp.
