AC Schnitzer’s Body Kit Suits The BMW M550i, But We’d Skip The Rear Wing

Short of an M5 or an M5 Competition, the M550i xDrive is the quickest BMW 5-Series version you can buy today, thanks to its 4.4-liter twin turbocharger V8 engine.

It pushes down 462 PS (456 HP) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque to all four wheels, and can accelerate BMW’s saloon to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4 seconds flat. This means it’s actually quicker than the old M5, and just 0.6 seconds slower than the latest M5.

If, however, you want your M550i to stand out from other 5-Series, you can always ring a well-known tuner. Someone like AC Schnitzer, for instance, who offers a body kit with extra carbon fiber parts which give the car a more aggressive look.

Mods include a custom front spoiler with carbon fiber inserts, a carbon fiber ‘Racing’ rear wing, side skirts and new wheels, while the interior remains a little more conservative, with a classy combination of brown leather and white contrast stitching, plus wood inserts on the dashboard, center console and door panels.

A few months ago, we saw this very same kit on an M5 Competition, which had additional carbon fiber above the rear diffuser. That car was also commissioned through BMW Abu Dhabi, and featured a red exterior and an all-black interior.
