AC Schnitzer’s ACS3 Sport Convertible based on the BMW M3

“The sun shines, the wind’s in your hair and the engine note in your ears: almost no other vehicle on the road evokes such untrammelled emotions.” That’s how AC Schnitzer describes the 2008 BMW M3 Convertible. The tuning firm today released its own package for the new M3 Convertible that will eventually let so much wind in your hair that you’ll go bald and an engine sound that will make you go deaf.

So far AC Schnitzer engineers have yet to mess around with the 420-hp V8 but will get around to it at a later date. For now they through in a AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer with chromed tailpipes in ‘Racing’ design.

Visually and in order to increase aerodynamics, AC Schnitzer has added a new front skirt with rectangular chromed grille inserts, a carbon lip spoiler, its own hood vents and a new side skirt which emphasizes the wheelarches.

AC Schnitzer also added its own touch to the interior and gave the 2008 M3 Convertible 20-inch Type VI silver wheels with a black finish.
