BMW 640d Gran Coupe by AC Schnitzer

It looks like the 2013 Geneva Motor Show will bring together not only the most impressive supercars, but also a pretty impressive lineup of tuned cars. The latest announcement has been made by the German tuner AC Schnitzer, which will unveil a pretty impressive 640d Gran Coupe equipped with a M Performance package.

Under the hood, the tuner managed to increase the standard 313 horsepower to 360 horsepower. For this the tuner modified the ECU and installed a new exhaust system with twin sports rear silencer with chromed “Sports Trim” tailpipes.

For the exterior, the tuner prepared a pretty impressive aerodynamic kit that includes a carbon front spoiler and a carbon rear diffuser, a new front spoiler with optional chrome line set and a rear skirt extension. There is also a chromed front grille and bonnet vents, and a rear skirt protective film. The car will sit on a set of wheels sized 19 or 20 inches, depending on the customer’s wishes.

Helping drag the Bimmer to a halt is a set of eight-piston high-performance brake calipers.

For the interior, AC Schnitzer is offering a “Black Line” aluminum cover for the i-Drive system controller, aluminum footrests and pedals, and velour floor mats.
