BMW X6 Gets The AC Schnitzer Falcon Treatment
The latest BMW tuned vehicle from AC Schnitzer is a worthy bearer of the name X6 FALCON. With performance upgrades from 306 to 360 hp for the X6 35i, from 450 to 525 hp for the X6 50i, and from 575 to an incredible 650 hp for the BMW X6 M, the speed of the petrol-engined models has been significantly increased. But in FALCON form, the BMW X6 30d and 40d – delivering 309 instead of 258 hp and 360 instead of 313 hp respectively – also leave the competition far behind. And any vehicle displaying such speed shouldn’t do it silently: so the X6 FALCON announces its presence with a range of AC Schnitzer silencer options with “Racing” tailpipes.
For the X6 M, there are other variants of the AC Schnitzer silencer with flap control and two “Carbon Evo”, “Sport”, “Sport Black” and “Carbon Evo” tailpipes available. With export version silencers, the FALCON X6 M explores the auditive boundaries abroad beyond the standard. There’s also a new diesel sound for the X6: The AC Schnitzer sound module set for diesel vehicles consists of a twin silencer with “Racing tailpipes” and a sound module which, via remote control, offers seven different exhaust notes (6 + standard) to allow diesel variants of the X6 to deliver a characteristic sound even at low revs.
Everything in the X6 FALCON by AC Schnitzer is tailored to impressive speed: The powerful and beefy form of the brand-new, ten-piece AC Schnitzer FALCON widening kit for the front and rear wings, including FALCON emblem, gives the vehicle a masculine and powerful appearance even when stationary. And individual special developments, such as the AC Schnitzer front skirt, bonnet vents (with optional Chrome Design elements), carbon mirror cover (not for X6 M), rear wing in the export version, rear diffusor, carbon rear skirt insert (X6 M) and rear skirt film, all show that the FALCON is headed in the right direction.
The lowering of 15 – 20 mm front and rear thanks to the AC Schnitzer suspension spring sets provides the necessary precision and control for the chase.
Power paired with speed and elegance: the X6 FALCON by AC Schnitzer shows its colours in the inside too. The interior of this exceptional vehicle impresses with its aluminium pedal set and foot rest, AC Schnitzer keyholder and velours foot mats.
Elegance is again combined with masculine design in the re-interpreted classic double spoke AC1 wheels in BiColor or matt anthracite which, in 22 inch size, give the X6 FALCON the right sporting hybrid look.
Alternatively, when the X6 FALCON is rolling on the road, choose from Type VIII forged racing alloys in BiColor (22 inch), Type VIII rims in BiColor black or silver (20 inch), Type V forged alloys in BiColor or anthracite (22 inch), or Type IV wheels in BiColor black (20 inch), all with corresponding tyres.
