AC Schnitzer has unveiled its performance skin for the new generation BMW 7 Series, injecting an aggressive attitude into the luxury sedan.
Despite only subtle visual modifications, the overall effect is rather dramatic, fulfilling the performance gap left by the lack of an M-division model.
In Sports Trim, the new 7 Series by AC Schnitzer adds a rather imposing new front bumper with an elongated lip gives the car a faster look, together with new side skirts which emphasise the car’s wheelbase and lengthen it visually.
“The new model is certainly the most dynamic 7-series ever, so we’ve only made subtle changes to the outline,” explains AC Schnitzer Chief Designer Michele Viandante. His philosophy: “Our accessories set important accents and emphasise the sporting characteristics of the saloon in a targeted manner.”
Toward the rear, the familiar features of the standard 7 Series have been lifted and widened to give the car a more muscular look.
This includes new AC Schnitzer dual exhaust outlets which produce a far more rewarding sound from any engine in the 7 Series range, encased in a diffuser-style rear apron.
The final touches are down to customer taste, with a choice of countless wheel designs of a very suitable 22-inch variety.
