BMW i8 gets AC Schnitzer tuning treatment
AC Schnitzer has decided to make the eco-friendly supercar stand out even with their carbon fiber bits and pieces. Starting at the front, a bumper add-on lends the electrified car a more aggressive appearance enhanced by the wings dipped in carbon fiber mounted on the sides of the bumper.
The beefy side skirts take advantage of the same lightweight composition, as do the mirror caps and even the door handles. Moving at the back, a fixed wing and a three-piece diffuser complete the carbon fiber treatment on the outside.
AC Schnitzer has removed the i8’s standard wheels to make room for a custom set measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the back wrapped in 245/35 R21 and 285/30 R21 tires, respectively. These new shoes can be optionally painted in just about any color you can think of and save a total of 4.4 kilograms over the set provided by BMW.
