2012 BMW M5 by AC Schnitzer Revealed Ahead of Geneva

The acclaimed tuning outfit will be bringing their personalization and power enhancement program to Geneva next week.

Aachen-based tuning expert AC Schnitzer has just released details and pictures of their F10M M5 ACS5 Sport ahead of the car's world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. The program includes performance upgrades as well as exterior and interior refinements. Performance numbers of the new M5 F10 increase to 620hp and 583lb-ft of torque, resulting in a new top speed of 190mph and a new century sprint time of 4.1 seconds (a decrease of 0.2 seconds).

Plenty of work has been done to squeeze more horses from the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 such as adding engine optics and engine compartment optics.To enhance acoustics an AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer with valve control and chromed Sports Trim tailpipes has been fitted. Ride and handling has been improved thanks to a suspension spring lowering kit that brings the car 25mm closer to the tarmac, and a choice of 20- and 21-inch forged alloys wrapped in performance tires. Magic Blue and silvery livery combine well with AC Schnitzer badges and logo.

Other exterior upgrades include a carbon-fiber front spoiler, chromed front grille, rear roof spoiler, rear spoiler and carbon-fiber rear diffuser. Inside, trims and steering wheel spokes have been finished in matching Magic Blue with other interior refinements including Black Line aluminum cover for the i-Drive system controller, aluminum pedals with matching foot rest and velour floor mats.
