2010 Geneva: AC Schnitzer X1 and 5-series GT

ACS 5-series GT press release:

Comfort meets Power: Grand Tour with the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer
“Gran Turismo“ means “Grand Tour”, and this is the principle behind the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer.

Driving comfort and performance at the highest level – that’s the promise from the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer – a promise which is guaranteed to be kept on the next “Grand Tour”.

Engine – Exhaust

The performance upgrade from 245 to 286 HP for the six-cylinder 530d already gives the standard car more pulling power and racing flair, which is demonstrated externally by the AC Schnitzer engine styling with capacity logo.

Yet the 5-series GT by AC Schnitzer doesn’t just bring a gleam to the eyes of BMW fans, but acoustically it delivers what the aesthetics promise at first glance. The AC Schnitzer twin sports rear silencer is the ideal tuning product for drivers with an appreciation of engine sound, to whom design elements such as the chromed “Sports Trim“ tailpipe trims and the chromed “Racing“ tailpipe trim are equally important.

The Suspension Technology

Impressive comfort in driving behaviour, even on dynamic driving on twisty roads, is achieved by the AC Schnitzer suspension spring set. The tuning by the Aachen specialists makes the 5-series GT convincing in every speed range thanks to its superb agility.


Two tonnes of unladen weight are irrelevant when the car is glued to the tarmac by the AC Schnitzer front and rear spoilers.

Bonnet Vents with chromed center web combine individual design with sophisticated engineering. The side lines are subtly emphasized by the AC Schnitzer side skirts, and the flowing dynamics of the coupé-like roof line are further enhanced by the AC Schnitzer rear skirt.


The comfort of the Gran Turismo took priority in the fundamental architecture of the BMW 5-series GT. So the specialists at AC Schnitzer completed the stylish elegance of the interior with a cover for the i-Drive System Controller, foot rest and pedal set in aluminum. Behind the frameless doors, velours footmats and boot mat welcome the driver.


To enjoy a “Grand Tour”, the passengers must be well supported, so the silver AC Schnitzer wheels Type IV in 19″ or the BiColor Version in 19″ and 20″ provide the perfect conditions technically and visually for an extraordinary trip. With the AC Schnitzer wheels Type VII in silver and BiColor in 22″ and the alloy forged wheels in Type V in 20″ and 22″, the drive is even more firmly planted. Another ideal choice is the brand-new Type VIII rims in 19″ or the racing forged alloys Type VIII in 22″. The new wheel with its double spokes in BiColor Finish is an evolution of the well-known Type VI wheel. All wheels are available with suitable tires.

you have to differ between ugly and reaally ugly

I think the 5er GT looks better than stock since it`s lowered and the rear spoiler hides some of the ugliness of the stock Prius like rear

Like the exhaust on x1

It is much better looking than the serial one on 1.8d or 2.0d. 3.0i exhaust looks quite nice, though not interested in a petrol engine. Other staff is not nice at all.

We should really blame BMW for even making the X1 and the GT. That's the beginning of the fail. ACS, like Obi Wan, made the failure complete.
