AC Schnitzer is renowned for tuning BMW cars and now they have worked on their first-ever Toyota project. The vehicle in question is Toyota GR Supra which is not surprising considering Supra shares its components with BMW Z4 M40i. Even though AC Schnitzer is the last tuning companies to work on GR Supra, but we have to commend them for a terrific job they did with it and deserves our accolades. The first aspect we have to talk about is the Supra’s BMW-sourced 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six engine. Stock version of Toyota GR Supra offers 335hp and 500 Nm of torque. AC Schnitzer massaged the engine to increase the output to 394hp and 600 Nm of torque. The change might not be significant when compared to other tuners work, but German based tuner played it safe. They are offering warranty up to 36 months for this power and torque upgrade.
The aftermarket tuner didn’t disclose performance specs but we expect the kit to improve the acceleration ad top speed of the Toyota GR Supra. Apart from working on the engine, AC Schnitzer also improved the appearance and sound by adding a sports rear silencer. Customers can opt for two round tailpipes in carbon or black anodized stainless steel. Chassis also receives RS coilover suspension with multiple height, rebound and compression adjustments to give it a perfect setup. Hence, Toyota GR Supra is closer to the ground by 1-inch for lower center of gravity and enhanced cornering abilities. The tuner claims the RS coilover suspension offers good driving comfort with help from high residual spring travel. Buyers looking to opt for lower kit only, AC Schnitzer is offering suspension spring to lower the vehicle by 0.6-inch.
Supra can be fitted with 20-inch AC1 Light Alloy Rims in BiColor or Anthracite or 20-inch AC3 Lightweight Forged Wheels in Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite/Silver. With respect to body kit, it includes matte black add-on front splitter made from ASA (Acrylnitril-Styrol-Acrylester), carbon “Racing” rear wing with optional Gurney flap and aluminum mounts, triangular carbon bonnet vents, and front license plate holder. Cabin consist of an aluminum upgrade: the shift paddles, pedal set with matching footrest, key holder, and cover for the iDrive System Controller.
