AC Schnitzer Transforms The Electric Mini

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Not bad for a golf cart.

The Mini Cooper is one of the automotive world's all-time greats. Not only is this car still a practical and reliable run around, but it still draws the attention of the aftermarket tuning scene and the racing crowd. Mini, as with so many other brands, has been delving into the world of electric vehicles, and its 2021 Mini Cooper SE, the brand's first all-electric car, has proven to be rather popular. The Mini SE has caught the attention of legendary German tuner AC Schnitzer, which has released a range of exciting parts for the little zoom bug, and we have to admit: they look sick.

The exterior of the SE gets treated to an easy-to-fit black front splitter, and is constructed from high-quality polymer ASA. At the back, protection film has been added to the rear skirt to protect against scratches on the loading edge of the boot. The electric Mini SE naturally weighs a bit more than its gas-powered counterparts, so AC Schnitzer has a specially developed suspension spring kit. The kit lowers the car by approximately 25-35 mm in the front, and 20-30mm in the rear. Along with the drop in ride height comes a set of super sexy 19-inch AC Schnitzer AC1 rims wrapped in 215/35 R19 tires.

The interior of the Mini Cooper SE is a naturally stylish place to be, but AC Schnitzer decided to add a bit of spice in the form of a set of AC Schnitzer aluminum pedals, while the controller for the iDrive system can also be covered in an aluminum "Black Line" housing. This isn't exactly a hot hatch; with a zero to sixty sprint time of 7.3 seconds, and a top speed of 93.2 mph, many SUVs will kill it in a friendly pull, but the AC Schnitzer kit gives it some much deserved attitude. Those interested will have to pop the tuner an email regarding availability and pricing in the US.
