Looking forward to the 2012 BMW M5? Well, you can watch this short teaser of the model here, or you can just check out AC Schnitzer’s stand at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. At the show, AC Schnitzer is showing the ACS5 Sport S Saloon (sedan), which is obviously based on the 5-Series sedan.
The AC Schnitzer ACS5 is a concept vehicle that has been upgraded from 407-hp to a whopping 540-hp. That allows 0 to 62 mph to come in just 4.5 seconds with a top speed of around 198.8 mph.
Performance upgrades by AC Schnitzer include a limited slip differential with up to 75% effect, AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer with chromed ‘Sports Trim’ tail pipe trims left and right, 8-piston fixed calipers left and right, and an 8-piece kit of brake pads and calipers on the front axle and the AC Schnitzer racing suspension.
There have been some aerodynamic upgrades made as well including a front spoiler, chromed front grille, a new carbon front spoiler center part, carbon air ducts for the brakes left and right, carbon side skirts, engine bay ventilated by the bonnet vents, an AC Schnitzer rear roof spoiler, an AC Schnitzer sports wings left and right with Chromline Set and a carbon rear diffusor.
The high-res gallery has been added after the jump for your viewing pleasure.
