AC Schniter E89 Z4 Unveiled

Coinciding with the Frankfurt IAA show, AC Schnitzer has revealed their full package for the E89 Z4. They had previously shown their Z4 with ACS Wheels, but this car now has the complete body kit and other accessories and represents the final product. Here is the breakdown on the specs:

Attached is the Datasheet including all the wheels specs with offsets and sizes and the available parts of the AC Schnitzer kit

Official Press Release
Quote:
Ready for its world premiere: the extensive product range for the BMW Z4 by AC Schnitzer. The
Aachen-based tuning specialist has further optimised the brand-new classic from BMW, which
has already received extensive accolades from the trade press.

The BMW Z4 as standard is far from under-powered. But as is well known, enthusiastic drivers
can never have enough power. Sufficient reason then for AC Schnitzer to upgrade the Z4 3.5i
Turbo to 286 km/h. With a power of 360 HP and an unladen weight of 1485 kg, the open-top
roadster from BMW accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. Even the
most demanding driver will be delighted with this performance.

The driving experience is enhanced acoustically and visually by the stainless steel sports rear
silencer and the chromed Racing tailpipe trims.

Equally sporting is the AC Schnitzer suspension variant in the Z4. Thanks to a new spring kit, the
transverse acceleration appears to bypass the conventional laws of nature.

This impression is certainly partly supported by the aerodynamic components made of PU-Rim, a
high quality flexible plastic. The aerodynamic pack for the new BMW Z4 consists of a chrome
front grille and front spoiler, where both components combine to give a more muscular look to the
long bonnet lines.

New sports fenders, consisting of wheel arches with integral air outlets for improved cooling of the
front brakes and chromed deflectors, optimise the side lines of the roadster.
Finally, the two-piece rear spoiler gives the rear of the BMW Z4 by AC Schnitzer an impressive
look; because of the performance of the car, this is probably the aspect which will be seen most
by other drivers!

In the inside, both driver and passenger enjoy an impressive interior. The aluminium cover for the
i-Drive System Controller, the aluminium foot rests and pedal set, are just a few of the
ergonomically perfect controls which give the vehicle elegance and enhance the sporting
ambience.

Standing on AC Schnitzer Type IV in 18 or Type VI wheels in 18, 19 or 20 inch, the BMW Z4
takes to the stage for its world premiere. A striking entrance from the Aachen specialist, which will
certainly not be forgotten in a hurry

Nice touches! I like the front lip spoiler especially. Seems to flow well with the stock bumper design. Would look great molded.

front looks great, fenders are OK but not too crazy about them. rear spoiler is heinous

front resembles an aston martin with the lip.

actually i like the rear spoiler ! not too fond of the side panel ... looking really forward for the totally chrome grills instead of silver sprayed 35i ones.

ANY IDEA ABOUT THE PRICES ????

Looks awesome - as does everything from AC Schnizter.

Title is spelled incorrectly, might want to fix it for search purposes.

I agree. I like the wheels. Im equivocal on the front lip vs. the standard front. But the rest, I think is useless. The Z4 is very nicely styled out of the box and doesn't need this stuff.

They state:
"With a power of 360 HP and an unladen weight of 1485 kg, the open-top
roadster from BMW accelerates from a standing start to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. Even the most demanding driver will be delighted with this performance"

An unmidified 35i already accelerates 0-60 in 4.8 sec according to the Road & Track road test. So 0-62 (100/km/h) must be 4.85 - 4.9 seconds. The realistic figure this additional 60 hp must be getting this figure down to, is 4.6 seconds or so.

The 35i weighs 3483 lbs / 1580 kg. Where are they getting 3273 lbs /1485 kg from? Their 4 wheels can't possibly be a combined 210 lbs lighter than the factory wheels.

Note they say "and an unladen weight of 1485 kg" - doesn't BMW spec the weight including a driver and half a tank of gas? May not account for 210 lbs, however.

The BMW figure in the Z4 brochure is 3450 lbs. This is the unladen or curb weight. They factor in a tank of fuel into the curb weight. They do not factor in driver weight.

Road & Track lists the Z4 curb weight as 3460 (off by 10 lbs from the BMW brochure, so probably a misprint) and a test weight of 3615, because they had a 155 lb driver test driving it.

R & T ran a 4.8 second 0-60 with their 155 lb lightweight of a test driver. So what's slowing me down about .05 seconds is the extra 45 lbs of body weight I have on the test driver. Easy modification - eat less, exercise more.

I like!

The fenders have a similar design to the very popular TENSION SV, based on the E63. The front spoiler is very ACS. Flow formed, perfectly scaled to the contours of the bonnet.

Thanks for posting!
