AC Schnitzer Thinks It Made The New BMW M2 Even Better
AC Schnitzer is also developing an engine upgrade for the BMW M2 and a set of fully-adjustable suspension components
AC Schnitzer has unveiled a series of upgraded components for the G87-generation BMW M2, aimed at improving its performance and making it an even more thrilling car to drive.
The new parts launched by AC Schnitzer start on the suspension front, where there are new front springs that drop the ride by 20-25 mm (0.78 – 0.98 inches) and rear springs that drop it by 15-20 mm (0.59 – 0.78 inches). The tuner notes that these springs lower the car’s center of gravity and that they were tested extensively on the Nurburgring to ensure that they are up to the task.
Elsewhere, the German tuner has introduced a set of AC4 Lightweight forged wheels for the sports car with a gold finish and offered in 20×10-inch forms both front and rear as well as larger 21×10 for the rear. These wheels are wrapped in 285/30 front and 295/30 rear tires, or 295/25 rubber for the 21-inch wheels.
A series of aerodynamic improvements have also been introduced for the M2. These start with a small 2-piece rear spoiler sitting above the rear window, a carbon fiber lip spoiler on the trunk, and a large fixed carbon rear wing perfect for track use. A number of other parts are being developed but haven’t been introduced just yet. These include a new front grille, front splitter, canards, side skirts, front air inlets, and a rear diffuser.
