AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupe is the 2013 Tune It! Safe! car

Article by Anita Panait, on December 2, 2013

The Association of German Vehicle Tuners (VDAT), in cooperation with BMW AG, will launch a special concept car this year, in line with its "TUNE IT! SAFE!" initiative. The initiative is supported by the Police and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Construction and Road Development. Just like previous editions, VDAT is launching a specially modified vehicle, which this year is based on the BMW 428i Coupé, as mostly tuned by BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer. The result is the AC Schnitzer "ACS4 2.8i Coupé." AC Schnitzer tuned the 2.8i engine to 216 kW/294 HP and 420 Nm, allowing police vehicle to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds. It features a AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer made of stainless steel with the chromed "Evo Racing" tailpipe trims.

The ACS4 2.8i Coupé also features the AC Schnitzer Type VIII Lightweight Forged Wheels in 9.0J x 21" donning "Ventus S1evo" tyres in 245/30 ZR 21 91Y from TUNE IT! SAFE! chief sponsor Hankook. Ensuring the police car’s low, safe road position is AC Schnitzer’s racing suspension that is adjustable in compression and rebound stages. The police car also features other aerodynamic elements like front spoiler, rear diffuser, rear spoiler and rear roof spoiler.

Moving inside the cabin, driving policemen are treated to aluminum pedals, foot rest and "Black Line" handbrake handle as well as a new key holder. Completing cabin’s looks are Velours floor mats.  To turn the BMW visually into a "true" police car, TUNE IT! SAFE! partner FOLIATEC provided the official film decor, with Hella providing the special signalling system RTK 7. The TUNE IT! SAFE! campaign vehicle will be unveiled at the Essen Motor Show on the VDAT stand No. F 104 in Hall 10 from November 29 to December 8, 2013. After that, it will be showcased in other shows across Germany.
