‘An ideal symbiosis of technical sophistication and aesthetic magnificence’, says Schnitzer. With 750hp…

It could be straightforward to know among the better-known BMW tuners passing up the chance to fettle the XM. It’s rather a lot, in each respect, and specializing in the extra conventional M automobiles whereas these are nonetheless round appears wise. However seemingly they’ll’t get sufficient; there’s already been the Thor upgrades from Manhart, plus fairly a couple of others, and now AC Schnitzer has turned its hand to the BMW SUV everybody likes to hate.

Merely known as XM by AC Schnitzer, it takes the usual automotive as much as Label Crimson ranges of energy. So which means what was 653hp and 590lb ft turns into 751hp and 664lb ft.

It polarises, is absolute luxurious class and an actual assertion.’ They know this isn’t going to enchantment to all people, however increasingly more that looks like precisely the purpose of the XM. So don’t be stunned if a couple of extra observe Schnitzer’s lead…
