AC Schnitzer want to offer something different for potential BMW 1-Series owner. The German tuner successfully installed a triple-turbocharged 3.0 Liter straight-six sourced from BMW 550d. The new engine is not being left in standard specs. AC Schnitzer have tuned the engine to produce 400 hp (from 380 hp).

The front bumper also have been redesigned to fit larger air dams that is going to cool the engine, new side skirts, light weight carbon fiber mirror caps, roof mounted spoiler and a new set of 20-inch wheels.
