The AC Schnitzer X6 Falcon follows the styling features of its X5-based sibling while building upon the inherent performance dynamics of the new BMW X6.

The already impressive handling of the X6 has been further improved with countless laps around the North Circuit of the Nürburgring by chassis developers and engineering director Manfred Wollgarten.
