AC Schnitzer launches ACZ4 5.0d

German tuner AC Schnitzer has taken the wraps off the ACZ4 5.0d based on the BMW Z4. They used the sDrive 23i version to turn it into a one-off concept which unlike the standard car has replaced the six-cylinder 2.5-liter engine with a tri-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbodiesel sourced from the M50d. It generates an impressive 430 HP (316 kW) and 619 lb-ft (840 Nm) torque which is enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 186 mph (300 km/h). It also boasts an adjustable racing suspension, lightweight exhaust system, high-performance brakes and carbon fiber race seats.

The ACZ4 5.0d gets the limited slip differential from the M3 E92 and has also received an eight-speed automatic transmission. It rides on 19-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels and benefits from a carbon fiber spoiler and a ventilated hood. AC Schnitzer has also installed a carbon fiber boot lid, rear skirt, roof, along with aluminum pedals and painted trim for the inside.

Although it’s billed as a concept, the tuner says an identical configuration would set you back €113,965.
