The i4 arrives without a combustion engine and exhaust system. Nevertheless, AC Schnitzer finds enough starting points to increase its driving dynamics potential.
Classic tuners are making their business more and more difficult for electric cars. Where there is no combustion engine under the hood, none can be optimized. The missing exhaust cannot be modified either. A car with an electric drive can also be presented as more dynamic and visually sporty. BMW specialist AC Schnitzer has poured all of its experience into a package for the new BMW i4. ,
Shorter suspension springs, which lower the body of the electric BMW by 20 to 25 millimeters on both axles, promise a lower center of gravity and thus more agility and precision in steering behavior. The wheel arches can be filled with various rims from the Schnitzer range. The AC1 version is available in 19 and 20 inch diameters. The AC4 wheel is fitted in the 20-inch dimension with tires measuring 255/35 at the front and 265/35 at the rear. Optionally, the track on both axles can be widened by ten millimeters with additional plates. Then the rims are also fuller in the wheel houses. ,
At AC Schnitzer, the optics of the BMW i4 have also been reworked, provided that it is equipped with an M package ex works. The front apron is enhanced by a new front spoiler with an additional splitter. In addition, side wings on the skirt flanks increase the downforce on the front axle. A roof edge spoiler and a small spoiler lip on the trunk lid ensure the aerodynamic balance at the rear. Like the spoiler at the front, this is supplemented with additional side wings. The flanks of the i4 are enhanced by small additional wings over the gill elements.
The interior is also refilled. If desired, the driver's feet step over an aluminum pedal set with footrest, while the eye is pleased with the darkened controls of the Black Line. ,
More engine power and more sound are difficult for tuners to achieve in an e-car. That leaves the areas of optics and chassis. AC Schnitzer limits itself to precisely this with the purely electrically powered BMW i4.
