AC Schnitzer Takes The BMW X3 M Competition Up To 600 Horsepower

    2020 BMW X3 M by AC Schnitzer

    A standard BMW X3 M Competition is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six engine that delivers a total of 503 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Not bad numbers for an SUV that goes from 0 to 60 mph in about 4 seconds and up to a top speed of 177 mph.

    AC Schnitzer believed that the X3 M Competition can do more and came with a performance upgrade that increases the power up to 592 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque – or about 89 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque more than the standard car.

    Also, AC Schnitzer is offering a new suspension kit incl that lowers the car’s ride by 20 mm upfront and 25 mm in the back. This ensures maximum control and road holding despite the increased ground clearance typical of SUVs.

    The exterior was also modified, with changes including a new AC Schnitzer front splitter, a rear roof wing which is fitted into the rear roof spoiler, the rear skirt protection film and AC Schnitzer emblems (400 mm, left-right). Whereby the aerodynamic elements mentioned first are of course not only responsible for an “optically fast ride”, but above all improve downforce on the front and rear axle.

    For the interior, AC Schnitzer relies on high-quality, easy-grip aluminium accessories: a pedal set with matching footrest, a keyholder and the aluminium Cover Black Line for the iDrive Controller and the aluminium shift paddle set are on the parts list.
