The aftermarket specialists from AC Schnitzer have officially pulled the wraps off their newest creation, the so-called ACZ4 5.0d, which is one crazy ride.
As you probably already figured it out, the brand new ACZ4 5.0d signed by AC Schnitzer is actually based on a BMW Z4. The model in question has been named a concept and it is using the Z4 sDrive23i version, adding several tweaks which are helping it stand out from a crowd, which include the carbon fiber roof, the carbon fiber front spoiler, the carbon fiber front fenders, carbon fiber rear skirt, carbon fiber boot lid, the ventilated hood which has “escaped” the lightweight material treatment, the 19-inch forged alloy wheels and several other tweaks which are definitely helping it stand out.
The new AC Schnitzer ACZ4 5.0d is also getting the lightweight sports exhaust system, the high performance brakes and the adjustable racing suspension. We also have to mention the same limited slip differential which was used on the M3 E92. The interior design of the car is basically carried over, except for the aluminum pedals, the carbon fiber racing seats and some trim. Power to this one-off model made by the tuning company is being provided by a 3.0 liter six-cylinder diesel engine, which has replaced the 2.5 six-cylinder unit. This is the tri-turbo found on the M50d models which is capable of putting down 430 HP (316 kW) and 840 Nm (619 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the ACZ4 5.0d needs just 4.5 seconds and top speed stands at more than 300 km/h (186 mph). Prices for it stand at 113,965 EUR, in its current configuration, but this isn’t offered for sale.
