German tuner AC Schnitzer bring their own version of the BMW 1M to the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The complete package includes both visual and power upgrades.

Under the vented bonnet, AC Schnitzer gives the 1M a significant power upgrade from 340 to 400 horsepower. It also gets AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer with chromed "Racing" tailpipe that increases the acoustics.

To cope with the added power, AC has fitted the car with a high performance brake system with 6piston caliper at front and 4piston caliper at the rear. It also gets fully adjustable AC Schnitzer racing suspension.

The exterior design gets a makeover as well. The aggressive body kit consist of carbon front spoiler, chromed front grille, carbon rear diffuser and a trunk lid spoiler. As with all the previous offerings, the company offers a wide range of 19 and 20-inch wheels to choose from: Type VIII and Type V forged alloy wheels in BiColor, Type VIII and Type IV wheels in BiColor and Type IV in silver.

The interior is painted with the same Valencia Orange color as seen on the outside, including the center console. The gear knob, iDrive and pedals also get the AC Schnitzer treatment.

Mein Auto: waiting for the M4!
I think that would be an incredible car. Already a big fan of the 1M.
