AC Schnitzer has revealed its ACS5 M5 Tuning Package ahead of its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow next week. The ACS5 package features both cosmetic and performance enhancements.

The F10 M5's already potent S63Tu motor receives a power increase (via ECU tune) to 620hp / 790Nm (582lb-ft) torque. The sounds coming from the M5 is enhanced via the AC Schnitzer twin sports silencer with valve control, with its chrome tailpipes.

The M5 is lowered on AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit and wheel options are the Type VIII racing and forged alloy rims in 21 inch, Type V forged alloy wheels in 20 inch and Type IV BiColor rims in the same size.

The ACS5 is covered in a matte blue color they call "Magic Blue" and extra bodywork includes a carbon front spoiler, chrome front center grille, rear roof spoiler, rear trunk spoiler and carbon rear diffusor. The interior features trim and steering wheel

Interior trims and steering wheel spokes have been finished in matching Magic Blue color to match the exterior color.

PRESS RELEASE + Expand
Consequent sporting and even more uncompromising - The BMW M5 Saloon by AC Schnitzer

It celebrated its world premiere at the IAA 2011. There the BMW M5 Saloon was launched and one thing was immediately clear: if you insist on a saloon but still want sporting driving, this is the car for you. With the AC Schnitzer special equipment presented at the International Motor Show in Geneva, the M5 Saloon is now even more powerful and sporting.

The tuning experts from Aachen have increased the performance of this Power Five-Series to 456 kW / 620 HP with an extra control unit. With its top speed of 305 km/h and a maximum torque of 790 Nm, you can't pass this vehicle by - in every sense of the phrase! A glance under the bonnet at the AC Schnitzer engine and engine bay styling shows why: this is where the specialists have been at work. Acoustically too, the M5 is convincing with its AC Schnitzer twin sports silencer with valve control, visually crowned with the chromed "Sports Trim“ tailpipes.

Fans of sporting driving will be well served by the M5 by AC Schnitzer. Developed on the race track and built for daily use, this vehicle combines high performance with maximum suitability for everyday use. With the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit, the Aachen-based tuning experts have ensured that precision and control take priority even in physically exceptional driving situations. Motorsport feeling is further reinforced by the AC Schnitzer wheel and tyre sets. Options are the Type VIII racing and forged alloy rims in 21 inch, Type V forged alloy wheels in 20 inch and Type IV BiColor rims in the same size. Fitted with corresponding tyres, every start is a leap onto the winner's podium.

Aerodynamic components are an essential element of a sporting vehicle. With the AC Schnitzer carbon front spoiler, chromed front grille, rear roof spoiler, rear spoiler and carbon rear diffusor, the M5 offers maximum driving dynamics and agility and would cut a fine figure even on the North Loop of the Nürburgring. The "Magic Blue“ and silver livery, the AC Schnitzer badges for the side and the AC Schnitzer logo "ACS5 Sport“ visually complete the aerodynamic power pack.

The driver also enjoys an elegant racing atmosphere in the interior of the ACS5 Sport. Interior trims and steering wheel spokes have been finished in "Magic Blue“ to match. The AC Schnitzer "Black Line“ aluminium cover for the "i-Drive" system controller and the aluminium pedals with matching foot rest, and floor mats in velours, ensure that the extraordinarily sporting character of this car is maintained systematically through to the interior.

So if you want to be at the forefront in terms of elegance and sports performance, check out the new BMW M5 Saloon. But if that's not enough, you'll have absolutely no competition in the AC Schnitzer ACS5 Sport Saloon.

Looks vulgar, cheap and unattractive. This design miraculously looks worse than a stock M5. Is that a Batman, Star Wars or Wolverine engine bay? Not to my taste at all, but performance figures are nice and glad to see those.

Not feeling it, at all. That center grill intake below the kidneys looks rather ridiculous.

Looks alright, like the front and rear lip spoilers. Should've used different exhaust tips and changed black out the kidneys and fender grills. I'm sure it'll be one hell of a ride.

Every modification they did other than the tune makes the car less desirable than stock. Complete fail.

Somehow they managed to make the M5 look like a regular 5er...(why would you change the exhaust to make it look like a 550i? LOL) Too many different design elements, looks like a mess.
