Whenever German tuner AC Schnitzer pops-up on the web with one of its latest customizations it has to be a special one, especially if we are used to seeing special BMW models wearing its signature.
This time however, it`s not a BMW model wrapped with a hefty dosage of upgrades, both at the exterior and underneath the skin, the tuner now turning their attention to the hot MINI John Cooper Works. All versions, the Hatch, Clubman and Cabriolet can now be had with significant upgrades at the exterior as well as under the hood.
In case you own a MINI JCW and want to look hot and more powerful, then AC Schnitzer is the right choice for you. You will get a nice wrap, along with some hot aerodynamics.
Amongst the top amenities, there is the standout front splitter or the new exhaust system with the “Track Mode” valve control”, which provides a wilder soundtrack. Other goodies refer to the new suspension system or the AC1 BiColor or Anthracite 19-inch alloy wheels.
Additionally, you can also have your JCW with the AC Schnitzer “Sport” or “Sport Black” tailpipe, rear “Technology & Design” badge and so on.
As you might all expected, the car`s main highlight is the power kit under the hood, which makes it quite a standout. We are dealing with an ECU remapping, turning the 231 horsepower to 265 horsepower. In case you own the less expensive Cooper S, then you can also have the right package, which will raise the power from 192 horsepower to a good 235 horsepower.
