AC Schnitzer fa un’altra magia: arrivano la BMW Serie 3 LCI berlina e Touring.

Più scelta, più potenza
Gli esperti della AC Schnitzer stavolta “se la sono presa” con la serie 3 berlina e Touring, aumentandone la potenza. Le due versioni diesel 316d e 335d sono passate rispettivamente a 139 CV e a 360 CV mentre le versioni a benzina toccano quota 204 CV per la 316i e 360 CV per la 335i. Gli upgrade per le nuove 330i e 340i invece sono ancora in fase di sviluppo. Tutte queste elaborazioni, che trasformano la serie 3 standard in una vera bomba, hanno una garanzia di 2 anni.

Esperienza e fiducia
Non paga di aver aumentato la potenza, la Schitzer ha messo mano anche al resto. Tanto per cominciare lo scarico doppio è stato migliorato ed è disponibile nelle varianti Racing Evo, Sport o Sport Black.

Per la serie 3 la Schnitzer offre le sospensioni AC Schnitzer Racing, che abbassano l’assetto di 30-40 mm, o quelle sportive ad assetto variabile (che abbassano l’assetto di 25-30 mm davanti e di 20-25 dietro). Entrambe le versioni garantiscono il massimo del grip e prestazioni ottimali su qualunque superficie stradale.

A livello di cerchi la scelta è tra:

  • cerchi in lega  bicolore o antracite da 18, 19 e 20 pollici
  • cerchi Type VIII da 18, 19, 20 e 21 pollici
  • cerchi Type IV bicolore

Profondi valori interni
La Schnitzer non ha trascurato l’abitacolo, impreziosito dall’allestimento “Black Line” con finiture in alluminio e che comprende:

  • sistema di controllo BMW “i-Drive”
  • nuovo pomello del cambio
  • leva del freno a mano in alluminio
  • pedaliera in alluminio
  • tappetini in velluto

Ancora più aerodinamica, ancora più dinamica
La serie 3 firmata da Schitzer è ancora più aerodinamica e sportiva. Ma siccome anche l’occhio vuole la sua parte gli specialisti tedeschi sono intervenuti anche con sapienti dettagli estetici:

  • spoiler frontale
  • spoiler posteriore
  • calotta specchietti in carbonio
  • strisce sulla carrozzeria
  • pellicola protettiva per la minigonna posteriore

The new 3-series LCI Saloon and Touring models are now here to complete
the 3-series product range.

The Aachen-based experts at AC Schnitzer have helped uprate the diesel power plants of the
316d – 335d, depending on base engine, to 139 hp (316d) and 360 hp (335d).
The performance upgrades for the petrol-engined models of the 316i – 335i deliver between 204 hp (316i) and 360 hp (335i), while the upgrades for the new 330i and 340i power units are in development.

One thing is certain: all performance upgrades make the 3-series even more impressive and come with a 2-year warranty. And once again, the readers of “sport auto” magazine have voted AC Schnitzer currently the best engine tuner across marques, confirming the company’s position
as a competent partner for performance tuning. A high power chargecooler and sports catalyst complete the performance product range. But since appearances also count, the core values are again reflected in the AC Schnitzer engine styling.

The 3-series LCI models create an appropriate sound with the AC Schnitzer silencers in twin tailpipe variants in “Racing Evo”, “Sport” or “Sport Black” design. For a purely visual conversion, the tailpipe trims are also available individually. In the 3-series by AC Schnitzer automotive life is experienced either with the fully height adjustable AC Schnitzer Racing suspension with its adjustable compression and rebound settings, which lowers the 3-series by around 3 -40 mm, or the sports suspension which draws the body closer to the tarmac by 25-30 mm at the front and around 20-25 mm at the rear. Conversion with the suspension spring kit ensures you never lose grip even on turbulent, twisty
events.

Ground adhesion is improved above all with a combination of suspension components and the AC Schnitzer wheel and tyre sets. To achieve the perfect look, there is a choice of wheel designs which make up the wide range of wheel sets for the 3-series models. The new AC1 alloys in BiColor or anthracite are available in 18, 19 and 20 inch. The same size range is also offered in the Type VIII design in black and silver, and the Type IV rims in BiColor. The latter also come in silver (18 inch only), while the Type VIII BiColor forged alloys can be fitted in sizes up to 21 inch.

The ACS3 shows its inner values with the AC Schnitzer “Black Line” aluminum cover for the BMW “i-Drive” system controller, a choice of gear knobs, the “Black line” aluminum handbrake handle, the redesigned aluminum pedal set and footrest, and velour foot mats.
Not only that:
The aerodynamic components from AC Schnitzer make the ambitious standard model into a vehicle with even more dynamism and sporting performance. AC Schnitzer front spoiler elements – also available in carbon as an option -, carbon mirror cover, rear roof spoiler and rear spoiler,
together with design stripes and rear skirt protective film, are also available for the 3-series LCI Saloon and Touring.
