AC Schnitzer History


AC Schnitzer Automobile Technik is a third party tuning company based in Aachen, Germany specializing in BMW, MINI and Land Rover cars, as well as BMW motorcycles.

 Founded in 1987, Schnitzer has its headquarters in Aachen (licence plate code AC). It is one of the largest, most renowned vehicle customizers worldwide for the BMW brand. Although the firm has common roots with Schnitzer Motorsport, the famous racing team, it is a completely independent concern both commercially and legally. AC Schnitzer is part of the Kohl Group, which also counts Steinmetz as one of its associates.

 The range of AC Schnitzer includes individual components such as chassis, aerodynamic components, custom exhaust systems and light-alloy wheels (up to size 22 inch), as well as complete vehicles and performance tuning for petrol and diesel engines. AC Schnitzer also makes products for vehicle interiors using materials such as aluminium, leather or carbon fibre. The product range includes control elements such as steering wheels, pedals and hand-brake levers, or interior mouldings and cladding, as well as exclusive customer requirements. Most accessories can be obtained via official channels through BMW dealers.

AC Schnitzer demonstrates its expertise in the specialist press and at fairs with various vehicle projects. An example of this is the Tension based on a BMW M6, which achieved the title of “fastest street legal BMW in the world” in 2006 on the high-speed track at the Nardò Ring in Italy. The 552 hp Bolide reached speeds of 331.78 km/h in test runs. Now it is the second fastest BMW in the world, with the fastest BMW being the 720Hp M5 from G-Power.
