AC SCHNITZER Program for the F07 5 Series GT

Comfort meets Power: Grand Tour with the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer

"Gran Turismo" means "Grand Tour", and this is the principle behind the 5-series GT by
AC Schnitzer. Driving comfort and performance at the highest level - that's the promise from the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer - a promise which is guaranteed to be kept on the next "Grand Tour"

Performance Upgrades
Engine tuning and performance upgrades have a long tradition at AC Schnitzer. To be on the safe side however, we prefer not to extract the maximum possible power but instead ensure greater robustness, which means a longer life of the engine. Many of our diesel performance upgrades are therefore designed for an increase in torque rather than an increase in horsepower. Because torque is what you feel when for example you're "pressed back in the seat" on pulling away. Yet the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer doesn't just bring a gleam to the eyes of BMW fans, but acoustically it delivers what the aesthetics promise at first glance. The AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer is the ideal tuning product for drivers with an appreciation of engine sound, to whom design elements such as the chromed "Sports Trim" tailpipe trims and the chromed "Racing" tailpipe trim are equally important.

Suspension
Impressive comfort in driving behavior, even on dynamic driving on twisty roads, is achieved by the AC Schnitzer suspension spring set. The tuning by the Aachen specialists makes the 5-series GT convincing in every speed range thanks to its superb agility.

The Bodywork
Two tons of weight are irrelevant when the car is glued to the tarmac by the AC Schnitzer front and rear spoilers. Bonnet Vents with chromed center web combine individual design with sophisticated engineering. The side lines are subtly emphasized by the AC Schnitzer side skirts, and the flowing dynamics of the coupe-like roof line are further enhanced by the AC Schnitzer rear skirt.

Interior
The comfort of the Gran Turismo took priority in the fundamental architecture of the BMW 5-series GT. So the specialists at AC Schnitzer completed the stylish elegance of the interior with a cover for the i-Drive System Controller, foot rest and pedal set in aluminum. Behind the frameless doors, velor floor mats and trunk mat welcome the driver.

The Wheels
To enjoy a "Grand Tour", the passengers must be well supported, so the silver AC Schnitzer wheels Type IV in 19" or the BiColor Version in 19" and 20" provide the perfect conditions technically and visually for an extraordinary trip. With the AC Schnitzer wheels Type VII in silver and BiColor in 22" and the alloy forged wheels in Type V in 20" and 22", the drive is even more firmly planted. Another ideal choice is the brand-new Type VIII rims in 19" or the racing forged alloys Type VIII in 22". The new wheel with its double spokes in BiColor Finish is an evolution of the well-known Type VI wheel. All wheels are available with suitable tires.

I see you have a 535iGT - can you offer some general impressions of your car?
I never had the opportunity of driving a 535iGT but I loved the engine in my 335i vert. I would suspect a 535iGT is a very sweet balanced ride.
