BMW X6 Gets “Falconized” by AC Schnitzer

BMW dedicated tuners AC Schnizer have just released their own interpretation of the X6 BMW which doesn't look half bad. It's rather cool actually. Outside of the interesting paint job, there are several other “enhancements” made by Schnitzer.

The wings of the car which extend further out than the base model are made out of PURIM, a high quality plastic that allows for more flexibility but also adds to the rigidity of the car. It performs better than other materials under stress and it also looks nicer too.

The overall dimensions of the X6 have been augmented, with a 70 mm wider front track and 80 mm extra on the rear track. These important modifications were made with serious testing on the Nurburgring, so there's no worry about quality here.

The suspension setup was also thoroughly tested until Schnitzer were satisfied with the results. The manufacturer now proudly states the car will grip the road even at high speeds. In this respect they also modified the aerodynamics of the car, to improve downforce, crucial for cornering at high speeds.

This includes a new front skirt with diagonal air intakes and repositioned fog lamps. In the rear, a solid skirt with an edge frame was mounted. The rear diffuser and the spoiler complete the overall look of the rear end.

To give this baby a new “voice”, Schnitzer gave it a new twin-flow exhaust system which isn't noisy but has a pleasant sound to it, thanks also to the Control Unit on the diesel engine. And speaking of engines, the horse power also got an enhancement, from 173 kW/ 235 hp to 200 kW/ 272 hp.

Other design features include a 3-spoke “EVO” steering wheel, and 22-inch rims Type VII. And to finish it all off, a coat of black and silver two-tone paint job. Just take a look at the pictures.
