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.

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.
