AC Schnitzer has crafted yet another impressive Bimmer, this time using the BMW 1 Series as the base. And although it doesn’t look much different than the car it’s based on, it’s actually a 400 horsepower car that uses a diesel engine.

They’re officially calling it the ACS1 5.0d concept, and using the combination of BMW’s most powerful diesel engine to date and throwing it in their smallest model as the major selling point. It uses a 3.0-liter triple-turbocharged engine, with Schnitzer upping the output to hit 400 hp. The engine helps the concept car hit 0-62 in just 4.5 seconds. The car also has 18″, 19″ or 20″ wheel options with the choice of Type VIII forged alloys in BiColor Black, Type VIII rims in BiColor Black, Type IV wheels. The result is a sportier, slightly more aggressive-looking hatchback that has all the power you could possibly want.
