AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupe reaches 288.7 km/h

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

AC Schnitzer never tires of receiving awards. Very recently, the carmaker got a third world record for Aachen after having gone to Nardo in southern Italy.

Historically, many records are set in the high-speed circuit. Each year in southern Italy, in collaboration with the AUTO BILD sportscars' editors and under the aegis of Continental AG, the top vehicle tuners compete.

This year, it was on Oct. 18-19, 2009. The record for the fastest road-legal diesel car was broken by the AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupe with a speed of more than 8.7 km/h.288.7 km/h. 

This was the figure on the display of the GPS speedometer system on the 13 km long high-speed circuit after the lap of the AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupe.

The record that was broken had been that of 2006 with the TENSION as the fastest road-legal BMW. The record had held in 2007 when the GP3.10 GAS POWERED entered to represent gas-powered vehicles.

AC Schnitzer cited its power upgrade as the reason for its success. The tuner had also cited its extensive AC Schnitzer special accessory range available for all vehicles based on the 3.5d engine.

This package is TUV-approved and available from BMW dealers. Another vehicle that stood out in Nardo came from the AC Schnitzer ACS4 3.5 turbo, which is based on the BMW Z4 sdrive 35i.

A speed of 303.1 km/h is a big deal only because it had come from a Roadster. Furthermore, the Z4 was also running with the commercial version of the AC Schnitzer performance upgrade for 3.5i engines.
