AC Schnitzer ACL2 Laps Nurburgring in 7:29.44, Faster than the Porsche 911 GT3

Aachen-based tuner AC Schnitzer has released a video showcasing that their “Green Beast” has passed Nurburgring in stunning 7:29.44. That’s a little slower than Lamborghini Huracan (7:28), but faster than Porsche 911 GT3 (991) (7:32), Pagani Zonda F supercar (7:33) and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 (2017) – (7:29)

Based on the BMW M 235i Coupe, the AC Schnitzer ACL2 under the hood features a modified version of M3/M4’s S55 3.0-liter inline-six, instead of the of the stock N55 3.0-liter turbo straight-six unit. The tuner also increased the power output to 570 hp, which is a 197 hp more over the standard M2’s 3.0-liter. That has been achieved thanks to a long list of upgrades such as an optimized carbon intake, a Drexler locking differential, a new ECU and a full custom sports exhaust. The car also has been fitted with fully adjustable suspension, while the greatest possible deceleration ensures Carbon-ceramic brake discs.

The ACL2 also has a wide-body makeover that includes new bumpers with larger air intakes, side sills, aggressive diffuser and huge fixed wing at the rear as well as a wider fenders, which adds 5.5 inches to the coupe’s width.
AC Schnitzer says that for now the ACL2 remains as concept vehicle and is not for sale. The car only serves for the company’s product development. However, the tuner claims that outfitted with all of these parts the coupe would cost around €149,000.00.
