Range Rover Sport by AC Schnitzer

AC Schnitzer is back, but not in black. The tuner has prepared a Range Rover Sport and presented it last March at the Geneva Motor Show, but now the innovative technical and aesthetic tuning solutions are available for order from Land Rover dealers at 20 locations across the world.

There’s more power, and that’s always a good thing. The 3.0L SD V6 engine now develops 340 hp (250 kW) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque, although the standard fuel consumption and CO2 emissions remain the same. From a visual point of view, the new exhaust pipes give the Range Rover striking final look. Customers may also opt out for two “Sports Trim” tailpipes or four “Sport” tailpipes, both in right/left combination.

This Range Rover Sport rides closer to the ground, either by 30 or 35 mm, due to the addition of lowering module, on a set of Type VIII forged racing alloys in either 10.0J x 22 inch or 11.0J x 23 inch configuration. There is an option of Type V forged alloys in BiColor or anthracite in 10.0J x 22 inch with 275/40 R 22 tyres.

AC Schnitzer also added new front and rear skirt with integral diffuser, while inside the cabin there’s new key-holder and velours foot mats.
