Teased: AC Schnitzer 99d

The 2011 Geneva Motor Show is a venue not just for automakers and manufactures to show off their latest new models, but it's also become a venue where serious tuning firms come to showcase their projects and aftermarket kits. An example of one is AC Schnizer, the well known BMW tuner, who is set to bring to Geneva its take on the BMW Z4 320d it calls the AC Schnitzer 99d. The 99d benefits from modifications that have enabled its 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel to develop 190-horsepower.

The tuner also turned its attention towards ridding the Z4 320d of excess weight which has resulted in the 99d to be 507 lbs lighter than the stock. This allows the vehicle to go from 0 to 62 mph in 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 146 mph. The AC Schnitzer 99d is also more efficient since it has undergone an "Efficient Performance" upgrade as well. The starting from for this greener BMW is $204,979.
