AC Schnitzer has built a package for the 6-Series that will make its debut at the Essen Motor Show. AC Schnitzer has recently unveiled its work on the BMW 1-Series F20. This latest tuning kit dubbed ASC6 Coupe comes with an ECU remap and a rear silencer that has a chrome finish for the 650i. The power of the V8 unit is raised from 407 to 540 hp.
Notably, the M5 offers 560hp, enabling the coupe to sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds.
Its braking system includes eight-pistons for the front axle. Buyers have a wide array of lightweight alloy rims to choose from. AC Schnitzer made sure that the exterior revisions are subtle.
AC Schnitzer offers a front lip spoiler, a chrome finish for the kidney grille, and a reworked rear bumper. The interior of the ASC6 Coupe features a sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, a Black Line aluminum cover for the i-Drive controller, and branded floor mats.
The new BMW 6-Series Coupe ushers the entry of an exclusive and exceptionally sporty 2+2-seater in the top-class coupes segment. This new model is longer and wider compared to its predecessor model and its height is 5 millimeters lower, thereby giving a powerful and strikingly low-set appearance.
The BMW 6-Series Coupe’s new interpretation of the traditional coupe proportions is enhanced by lines and surfaces that are inspired by waves. The flowing lines and smooth, graceful curves give the new two-door BMW a sense of athletic grace. These are further complemented by stunning and classy design features that highlight the car’s opulent character and sleek appearance.
The new car also boasts an expressive front end, with a large and slightly forward-leaning BMW kidney grille. The grille, with its broad and flat design, showcases the vehicle’s athletic pedigree, as well as creates a visual connection with the engine that’s nestled behind it. The kidney grille’s slats are slightly angled upward, lending extra emphasis to the “shark nose” character of the front end.
Moreover, the bonnet sports contour lines meet and form a V-shape towards the kidney grille and continue towards the headlights, kidney and wide air intake to exude a road-focused appearance. The car’s muscular wheel arches are emphasized by its high-quality chrome elements as well as by the optional foglamps with LED units.
Adaptive LED Headlights for High Visibility
The new BMW 6-Series Coupe has standard bi-xenon headlights. It also has an accent trim element cutting across the top of the hallmark BMW twin round headlights that produce the signature BMW intent look. There is also the optional Adaptive LED Headlights both for low and high beam. These contain LED light rings for both daytime running lights and parking lights and are leveled off at the lower edge as well as overlapped at the top edge by accent lights that are also equipped with LED. These result to a striking and distinctively BMW display of innovative light technology.
The Adaptive LED Headlights generate the low beam and high beam light from the two light rings. The light is from horizontal LED ribs that are positioned in the center of the light rings. BMW’s signature twin round headlight look is expressed more strikingly both when the daytime running lights are activated as well as when the headlights are switched on in the dark.
