And the upgrades are available now.
German tuning house AC Schnitzer is well known for taking BMWs and making them even faster. The company also works on MINIs, and has now turned its sights on the recently revealed 2019 LCI Hardtop and Convertible. AC Schnitzer's performance upgrades come with an assembly guarantee with parts such as silencer systems, tailpipes, intercoolers, spring kits, rims and wheel sets, front splitters, and accessories for the interior, all enhancing the looks and performance of the latest F55, F56, and F57 LCI MINI models.
Customers can order various part combinations to create their perfect MINI. AC Schnitzer recommends a power increase from 189 horsepower up to 235, and an increase from 207 lb-ft of torque to 258. Power is upped through a combination of an air intercooler and a silencer system with sound tube and sport tailpipes in chrome or anodized black. Alternatively, customers can opt for the new sport carbon tailpipes. The look is capped off with AC Schnitzer AC1 wheels painted in a two-tone or anthracite color with 215/35 R 19 tires. The interior features "Black Line" cover for the iDrive system controller, an aluminum gear knob, aluminum pedal set and footrest, and velour floor mats.
MINI already offers an insane amount of customization options, but AC Schnitzer takes it up to the next level. With this tuning kit, the MINI Cooper S becomes more powerful than the standard John Cooper Works model. Clearly AC Schnitzer is the right place to make your MINI even better.
