AC Schnitzer Range Rover Sport
AC Schnitzer has tuned the Range Rover Sport with an extensive range of technical and aesthetic tuning products.
This is the first time that the Aachen specialists have had a Range Rover in the workshop for a complete facelift. AC Schnitzer has been tuning some models from the Land Rover marque since 2002, but until now has only offered performance kits. Tuning fans amongst Range Rover drivers can now rejoice at this world premiere.
One goal of Aachen-based tuning expert AC Schnitzer was to expand the limits of the Range Rover Sport. This has been achieved amongst others by more diesel thrust for higher acceleration and perceptibly more torque. The Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer with performance kit has been upgraded from 215 kW / 292 hp / 600 Nm to a stunning 250 kW / 340 hp / 720 Nm.
Despite the extra power, the CO2 emissions of the Range Rover remain constant; i.e. the CO2 emissions per hp have fallen. That’s “Efficient Performance by AC Schnitzer“.
The exhaust gas flow of the Range Rover Sport is improved by the fitting of the AC Schnitzer twin silencer of stainless steel, with two “Sports Trim“ tailpipes or with four “Sport“ tailpipes (both in right/left combination). Visually too, the exhaust system is a striking highlight.
The all-wheel drive vehicle becomes more agile and responsive thanks to the AC Schnitzer lowering module, which steplessly lowers the Range Rover Sport by up to 50 mm.
A powerful, sporting presence with a striking silhouette is achieved by aerodynamic elements such as the AC Schnitzer front and rear skirts with integrated rear diffuser.
In the cockpit, drivers find the AC Schnitzer keyholder and velours footmats in sophisticated design.
The Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer will run on Type VIII forged racing rims in 10.0 x 22 inch, or 10.5J x 23 inch, and of course corresponding tyres (275/40 R 22 or 305/30 R 23 all round) for the world premiere in Geneva.
