The X4 only seems silly until you fire up the engine and go for a drive. In the 5.3-second xDrive35i trim, this crossover is sportier and more fun to drive than you would ever believe.
So how to make the exterior match the rapid and playful dynamics? How about a few of these all-new goodies from AC Schnitzer, and a power bump up to 360-horsepower via a 30-minute ECU reflash you can perform in your driveway? A medium UPS box from AC Schnitzer Germany might be your favorite Christmas present this year.
Yep. Your X4 is no longer a crossover between a truck and a car, but an SUV and an M3!
AC Schnitzer BMW X4
Press Release No. 13/2014
Page 1/2 November 2014
World Premiere at the Auto Car Show in Zürich
The look of a winner: AC Schnitzer presents the BMW X4 in an outstandingly athletic version AC Schnitzer presents a world first at the “Auto Car Show“ in Zürich in November 2014. From 6 to 9.11.2014, the Aachen-based tuning experts present their own typically unique and outstandingly athletic version of the BMW X4.
Athletes are judged by their performance – and the BMW X4 by AC Schnitzer doesn’t disappoint in this area. The Aachen tuners let the BMW X4 20i (export version) loose on the road with 245 hp.
The BMW X4 28i delivers a mighty 294 hp, and the BMW X4 35i will even impress world championship judges with its 360 hp. Equally impressive is the casual way in which the X4 by
AC Schnitzer powers forward from any speed.
And the diesel version is just as good: with performance upgrades to 220 hp (in preparation) for the 20d, 309 hp for the 30d and 360 hp for the 35d,
the diesel variants perform brilliantly in the race and – like the petrol-engined versions – stand out thanks to the AC Schnitzer engine styling
options. Naturally all performance upgrades were developed on AC Schnitzer’s principle of “Efficient Performance“, which means that although
the engine power is increased, the CO2 emissions remain the same. So the CO2 value per hp falls.
The X4 by AC Schnitzer demonstrates its power and speed with a sound which raises the hairs on the back of your neck, thanks to the AC Schnitze
r stainless steel silencer and twin silencer with two “Racing“ tailpipes (in right/left combination).
At the same time, the exhaust gas extraction is optimized, so the vehicle engine can work more efficiently and “breathe” more easily. This has a
further positive influence on the engine characteristics.
But performance must also be seen, and here the out ward signs are provided by the AC Schnitzer
silencer with 2 chromed “Sport“ tailpipes in right/left combination. A purely aesthetic solution is
available in the form of the chromed AC Schnitzer “Racing Evo“ or “Racing“ tailpipe trims.
The athletes’ agility comes from the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kits which provide lowering
by 20 – 35 mm on the front and rear, ensuring an optimum stance on the track and allowing the
various X4 versions to race light-footedly through the corners.
Style is combined with aerodynamics in the BMW X4 by AC Schnitzer with tuning elements for the
bodywork. Front spoiler elements and rear diffuser (both for vehicles with M-Technik pack) show
what this vehicle can deliver. The AC Schnitzer carbon mirror covers and rear skirt film complete
