AC Schnitzer Modifies BMW i8

JUN 27 2015 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 2

AC Schnitzer has introduced its aero program for the BMW i8. The styling package designed by AC Schnitzer includes a carbon fiber front spoiler, carbon fiber side skirts and a carbon fiber rear wing.

To enhance the driving dynamics, a lowering kit was applied to the i8 which reduces the ride height by 25mm front and 20mm at the rear. The i8 also sits now on 21-inch AC1 forged alloy wheels that are approximately 30% lighter than the standard wheels. The company says they are 4kg or 9 lbs lighter than the stock wheels.

With the ground clearance of a snake, look out for speed bumps.
The wheels should be 4kg lighter as there is not much to them.
