On the way to the perfectly tuned M5 from AC Schnitzer's point of view, we have already broken two records with our version and thanks to the support of the globally successful touring car pilot, Jörg Müller: The M5 by AC Schnitzer is with 1:31.71 min. the fastest sedan on the Sachsenring and also on the Nürburgring Nordschleife the time driven of 7:29.50 min. is the fastest ever achieved with an M5.




Of course we are happy about the success but above all we have used the knowledge from these race track applications to further perfect our developments for the BMW M5. Now we are finished and present the coherent overall concept of the M5 by AC Schnitzer.
 
 
 

 
It is a finely tuned composition of engine power, an optimised exhaust situation and carbon aerodynamics designed for downforce, in conjunction with the AC Schnitzer lightweight wheel/tyre combination in 21 inch and the suspension technology used. But one after the other.




In the AC Schnitzer version, the M5 delivers 515 kW/700 HP and 850 Nm, instead of the standard 441 kW/600 HP and 750 Nm. The M5 Competition will also soon have a performance upgrade, with targets similar to those of the M5. Both performance upgrades have a parts certificate and are therefore registrable. And, of course, both also include the AC Schnitzer mandatory 5-year assembly guarantee in their scope of delivery.
 
 
 

 
To improve the exhaust situation and the sound, various expansion stages of the AC Schnitzer silencers, including flap control, have been developed. First a homologated version and a second, a non-homologated version is available for many export markets. The latter can be extended with a sound tube.




All silencers are equipped with two AC Schnitzer exhaust tailpipes each side in a right/left combination. There is a choice of three versions: "Carbon Sport", "Sport black" or "Sport" chromed. The tailpipes are also available as a solo solution for purely optical finishing.
 
 
 

 
The lightweight aerodynamics, which have been consistently developed to increase downforce, have already proven their effectiveness during the record runs. The range consists of carbon front spoiler elements, which can optionally be supplemented with a front splitter in two different versions. The side skirts make the car look more stretched and also visually connect the front and rear sections.




At the rear a rear roof spoiler, a rear spoiler or alternatively the carbon "Racing" rear wing and the carbon rear diffuser provide aerodynamic downforce. We offer the carbon rear diffuser in our export markets as a variant with integrated brake light (in preparation).




The various AC Schnitzer light alloy and lightweight forged wheels, which are available in various designs and sizes for the BMW M5, are also super light and highly technical.
 
 
 

 
The highlight of AC Schnitzer rim technology and the exclusive new development for the BMW M5 represents the final development stage of the AC3 Lightweight Forged "Evo" Wheels with central locking optic. In the 10J x 21" offset 22 size, the AC3 "Evo" rim is fitted with 275/30 R21 tyres on the front axle and 285/30 R21 tyres on the rear axle.




Even though the new Lightweight Forged Wheels in 21 inch clearly belong to the AC3 design family, their appearance is particularly technical due to the central locking nut and the fact that the wheel bolts that are no longer visible. They "disappear" under a special aluminium cover that is screwed together with the additional central lock. In addition to their sporty appearance both together also serve as anti-theft devices, which is why a special key is included in the scope of delivery.
 
 
 


 
The AC3 Lightweight Forged Rims "Evo" are available in the colour variants BiColor silver/anthracite or BiColor anthracite/silver. Depending on how extravagant or discreet the customer wishes his wheel set to be, he can choose between grey or gold for the colour of the central locking nut.




Furthermore, the AC Schnitzer Lightweight Forged Wheels Type VIII in 21" are available for the BMW M5. We also offer our AC3 Lightweight Forged Rims and AC1 Light Alloy Wheels in BiColor or anthracite in 20 inch sizes.




The KW coilover suspension "V4" was developed in close cooperation with the AC Schnitzer suspension team. The suspension offered by KW, which is adjustable in compression and rebound as well as infinitely variable height adjustment, ensures a noticeable increase in driving dynamics and cornering handling.
 
 
 

 
The AC Schnitzer spring kit is available for lowering the vehicle's centre of gravity. This lowers the M5 on the front axle by approx. 20 - 25 mm and on the rear axle by 10 - 15 mm, which makes an emotional and varied driving experience possible.





The M5 by AC Schnitzer gets its finishing touch from the aluminium accessories for the interior. Here, for example, aluminium shift paddle sets are available which are larger than the standard pendants, ensuring even better and safer operability.




An aluminium pedal set, a matching footrest, a cover for the BMW i-Drive System Controller and the aluminium key holder round off the AC Schnitzer range for the BMW M5.
