AC Schnitzer BMW i8

BMW tuner extraordinaire AC Schnitzer has taken a shine to the German automaker’s most powerful plug-in hybrid, the i8. The powertrain goes untampered with, but there are plenty of other changes that bring out even more performance from this eco-friendly coupe.

It starts with the aerodynamics as the i8 is lowered 25mm in the front and 20mm in the back, and when you factor in a plethora of carbon fiber, a new front spoiler, side skirts, and a carbon rear wing, you get a strong sense that the driving dynamics will be quite different. The i8’s wheelset also gets a major upgrade with new AC1 forged alloys from AC Schnitzer with a two-tone color scheme and a reinterpretation of the classic double-spoke wheel design. The interior features an aluminum pedal set, aluminum root rest and velour floor mats. [Purchase]
