Just like the regular carmakers worldwide, tuners too will officially introduce their special rides at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which opens its gates next week. AC Schnitzer German house will release their specially-modified BMW i8 with Carbon Aerodynamic Accessories.
As you can predict, we are looking here at carbon fiber accessories and some fine mechanics which make the i8 extremely appealing and more aggressive. The model is now coming with carbon fiber front spoiler and side skirts, carbon Racing rear wing which increase the car`s aerodynamics, as well as the new lowering springs which lower its ride height by 25 mm and 20 mm front and rear, respectively.
Other fine features also refer to the carbon fiber middle front spoiler, carbon fiber bonnet top with middle strut, carbon front side wing and more carbon fiber air outlets at both front and rear for a sportier look and greater stance.
We should also mention the carbon fiber skirts on both sides, with three-piece carbon rear diffuser providing the i8 with more downforce and better pressure distribution, adding as well carbon fiber door handle recesses and mirror covers, and new logos.
The impressive carbon fiber aero kit is complemented with the tuner`s special and lightweight AC1 Forged Alloy Wheels in BiColor or Anthracite which perfectly complement the Red Chrome exterior wrap. They are sized 21 x 8.5J and 21 x 9.5J front and rear, respectively, and are also built to increase the car`s impressive dynamics.
The cabin also comes with new touches, like aluminum pedal set, aluminum footrest and floor mats which bring a sportier feel and cozy look. In the engine department, the model remains stock. We should find out full prices next week in Geneva.
