AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupé Details:

  • AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupé based on BMW 428i
  • Designed as part of the "TUNE IT! SAFE!" initiative
  • Features a 2.8i engine, capable of 294hp and 310 lb-ft of torque

Gone are the days of the Crown Victoria – we are in an era where new innovative and stylish police cars are being designed regularly by tuning specialists. For example, as part of the "TUNE IT! SAFE!" initiative, AC Schnitzer, in conjunction with the Association of German Vehicle Tuners (VDAT) recently introduced the "ACS4 2.8i Coupé" concept based on the BMW 428i.

The AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupé boasts a modified 2.8i engine, which is capable of producing 294hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The police car can sprint from 0-62mph in 5.7sec, but keeping with the theme of safe tuning, its speed is electronically limited to 155mph.

Additionally, the AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer is stainless steel with the new chromed "Evo Racing" tailpipe trims.

The modified 428i sits on the latest AC Schnitzer Type VIII forged wheels in 9.0J x 21" fitted with Hankook Ventus S1 Evo tires in 245/30 ZR 21 91Y from TUNE IT! SAFE! chief sponsor Hankook.

The vehicle’s low stance and racing suspension is made possible by AC Schnitzer, and the rebound stages, from the Aachen company. Front spoiler, rear diffuser, rear spoiler and rear roof spoiler complete the conversion.

The interior features aluminum pedals, foot rest and "Black Line" handbrake handle, and the new key holder. Velour floor mats complete the interior.

Not only does the AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupé contribute to the fight against illegal and unsafe tuning and counterfeiting, it also brings a fresh and inspiring new look to the otherwise dull police cars we’re so used to seeing. Speeders beware.
