2014 Geneva: AC Schnitzer ACS5 5.0d based on BMW X5 (F15) M50d

Article by Christian A., on March 3, 2014

AC Schnitzer revealed today its customized BMW X5 (F15) M50d and announced that it will bring the new high-performance SUV at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new tuning program includes a front skirts, new side sills, exterior mirror caps painted in gray and a new rear skirt with integrated exhaust system and air diffuser.

The exterior design is completed by the five-spoke 21-inch Type IV BiColor alloy wheels. Ac Schnitzer also added new suspension components that improve driving comfort, dynamics and safety. Inside, we find a new set of AC Schnitzer aluminum pedals and footrest, an AC Schnitzer keyholder and new velour floor mats.

Under the hood, we find the 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line diesel engine that comes with three-stage turbocharging and common rail direct injection. If the standard version of the engine delivers 381 hp (280 kW) and 740 Nm of torque, thanks to AC Schnitzer the powerplant now generates 430 hp (316 kW).

Despite the power increase, the CO2 emissions remain constant, which means that the CO2 value per hp has fallen. As we said, AC Schnitzer also added a new stainless steel exhaust system that features two "Racing“ tailpipe trims (in right/left combination).

At the same time, the exhaust gas flow has been optimised, so the vehicle's engine can work more efficiently and "breathe" properly.
