AC Schnitzer tunes the 2012 BMW 650i Coupe to make 540-hp

A new tuning kit for the 2012 BMW 650i Coupe is being released by AC Schnitzer at the 2011 Essen Motor Show this week the tuning house is calling the ACS6 5.0i.

AC Schnitzer added fender trim, a front apron with a chrome grille, boot lid spoiler and a rear apron housing a new diffuser. The lowered suspension leaves room for a set of 21-inch wheels that weight 25.3 lbs. A set of breaks have also been included in the kit with 8-piston calipers.

Interior mods include aluminum pedals, upgraded trim, and a sports steering wheel.

Power gets a significant boost up to 540-hp, up from the 4.4-liter V8’s stock output of 407hp.

Overall, this is a solid effort from the German tuner, with a nice power upgrade and an attractive styling package.
