AC Schnitzer’s 562bhp BMW M235i Looks Angry

Check out this really angry M235i which is tuned by AC Schnitzer. It is now the ACL2, and with more power than a standard-issue M5, it’s a mean little thing.

Engine is replaced by the 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder you’ll find in the BMW M4, packed with AC Schnitzer’s performance upgrade. This includes a new ECU, an optimised carbon intake, a lightweight battery, a Drexler locking differential, and a full AC Schnitzer sports exhaust. The result? A full 562bhp. As much as the original Ferrari 458 Italia had…

Again, another hack from its M4 big brother. It gets the axles of that bigger coupe, along with height-adjustable AC Schnitzer Clubsport suspension. Then come new support bearings, as well as the M4’s carbon strut braces.

You might have spotted a new set of kicks for the HulkBeemer. There are Schnitzer’s forged AC1 alloys in anodized red, wearing 20in Michelin PSS tyres.

Now for the important numbers: 0-62mph takes just 3.9 seconds – putting it way ahead of the M4. The real eye-opener however, is the car’s top speed: thanks to a delete of the limiter, this little monster will run on to 205mph. Yup. 205mph. From a 2-Series.

You can thank the new air optimized front skirt with carbon spoiler elements, a carbon rear diffuser, flared arches, a carbon bonnet and some rather exceptional mirrors.

Hulk green has invaded the cabin, with green leather, green stitching over black suede, carbon bucket seats with green inserts, a new Schnitzer control display, along with aluminium pedals, foot rests and gear top.

It’s only a technology demonstrator, to better represent the company’s capability. This beast will cost you around €149,000.
