AC Schnitzer’s Takes on Mini Cooper coupe
The company is working on performance upgrades for both the diesel- and gasoline-powered cars, starting with a front limited-slip differential. The AC Schnitzer diff can lock up to 75 percent, making corner exits both faster and more accurate.
Schnitzer offers a high-performance brake system with four-piston calipers, slotted discs, new brake pads, new caliper holder and steel flexible brake lines. Elsewhere underneath, a height-adjustable racing suspension is offered, or just a spring kit. The company also will have an aluminum strut brace and antiroll bar to keep the coupe even more planted in the corners.
Exterior and interior upgrades are available. Schnitzer offers a décor set with different designs. They come with a sticker reading, “Technology & Design.” Inside, the company will upgrade the pedals, gearshift, foot rests and floormats with brushed versions or versions with logos applied. Bigger wheels are also available with corresponding tires.
