Video: First look at the AC Schnitzer ACS8.0 at the Essen Motor Show

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
At Essen Motor Show we managed to get some close up time with AC Schnitzers latest model, based on the M850i xDrive. The ACS 8.0 gives us a preview of the upcoming M8 with its tuned N63 4.4L Twin Turbo V8 having similar power outputs as the S63 in the F90 M5.

We also took a quick look at the ACS5 Sport. The base car being an F90 M5 Competition before being fettled with to squeeze a a 7:29 Nurburgring lap out of the super saloon.

Thanks to AC Schnitzer for letting us take a closer look at these two cars.

I absolutely love this car, the color is awesome and all the details are done right IMO
Just not sure about the rear wing. Lol

It really didn't need changing to start with.

Very beautiful car. I wish the rear seats had more room and will be a more attractive vehicle.
Not digging the side and rear wings, otherwise very nice. The lip is perfect.

This is the first ACS car I've seen in a long time that didn't make me want to vomit a little. I think it looks great minus the wing.

It is an improvement on AC Schnitzer designing team.
I've been selling their products for the past 5 years, it is not everyone's taste.
It does gets better though, especially their muffler. It has been the best sport sounding muffler and good price point.

I like almost everything. Would delete the canards, and choose different, non-ACS wheels. Everything else is fire

Someone mentioned this in one of the M8 threads, but the M850i looks miles better than the M version. Can't remember ever thinking that before

I don't, but you could probably ring up Bobby Rahal and ask him
