AC Schnitzer’s Takes on Mini Cooper coupe

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Mini Cooper  coupe is still fresh–it hasn’t been out for more than a year. Now, German tuner  AC Schnitzer has taken it into the shop for some upgrades.

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.
