AC Schnitzer tunes the F06 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

AC Schnitzer F06 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

Sexy style with some added performance.

The latest entry into the “four-door coupe” market is the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, joining the likes of the Mercedes-Benz CLS, Audi A7, Aston Martin Rapide, Volkswagen CC, and more. The niche is growing, and BMW is looking to get a piece of the pie, along with the team at AC Schnitzer.

The new AC Schnitzer F06 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe tuning package is designed for both the 640d and 640i models. Both the 3.0-liter inline-six engines gain a few extra horses through ECU upgrades, and benefit from twin Sports rear mufflers with chrome tailpipes. The diesel engine goes from a 313 horsepower output to 360 horses while the gasoline engine goes from 320 to 360 horsepower. Of course, the engine optics package also adds a few ponies because of its styling enhancement.

AC Schnitzer focused on a light engine upgrade in the BMW F06 tuning program and put the spotlight on the four-door coupe’s styling. The sleek and muscular lines of the 6 Series Gran Coupe are complemented with an aerodynamic front spoiler and a bolder front grille with chrome bars and chrome frame. The rear sports a new skirt extension with special protection foil to emphasize the additional power driving the rear wheels.

A full range of AC Schnitzer cast and forged wheels are available on the new 6 Series Gran Coupe. The Type IV BiColor, Type IV Silver, and Type VIII BiColor cast wheels are available in 19- and 20-inch diameters, while the lightweight forged Type VIII BiColor wheels are featured in 9.0 x 21 front and 10.0 x 21 rear sizes with 255/30 R21 and 295/25R21 performance tires. Behind the front wheels sit eight-piston fixed brake calipers with performance pads for extra stopping power. A new AC Schnitzer spring kit helps to reduce the center of gravity and provide dynamic handling in the corners for the 6 Series Gran Coupe.

Customers also have the option of restyling the interior in the AC Schnitzer F06 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe. A special “Black Line” aluminum trim was designed specifically for the i-Drive controller while traditional aluminum pedals and foot rest offer a more engaging and aesthetic appearance. A new, sportier “Evo” airbag steering wheel faces the driver and offers more control. The interior is then finished off with a set of new velour floor mats.

The AC Schnitzer F06 BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe isn’t the ultimate horsepower upgrade program with big spoilers and widebody upgrades, but is the perfect styling and performance complement to the car’s original design. Pricing for the entire package has not been released and customers can order individual upgrades or the entire program.
