"Only serious and safe tuning will bring the driving fun you want!" Under this motto, the Association of German Vehicle Tuners (VDAT) launches a special concept car every year. In 2013, BMW AG is a partner in the Association’s "TUNE IT! SAFE!" initiative, which is supported by the Police and the Federal Ministry for Transport, Construction and Road Development. This year, at the 2013 Essen Motor Show, AC Schnitzer will unveil the special concept.
As many of you may have read, the Aachen-based tuner will come with a special version of the 2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe. After a few tricks, the German model is delivering 294 horsepower and 420 Nm peak of torque. Under these conditions, the sprint from stand still to 100 km/h is done in 5.7 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
Furthermore, the German model features 21 inch alloy wheels wrapped in Hankook 245/30 ZR 21 Ventus S1evo tires and a special aerodynamic package. It includes unique front and rear spoilers, a special air diffuser and a rear roof spoiler.
To make the BMW visually into a "true" police car, TUNE IT! SAFE! partner FOLIATEC provided the official film decor, and Hella the special signalling system RTK 7.
The TUNE IT! SAFE! campaign vehicle makes an essential contribution to the fight against illegal and unsafe tuning and counterfeiting. It will be presented for the first time at the Essen Motor Show on the VDAT stand No. F 104 in Hall 10 from 29th November to 8th December 2013. After that, it can be seen at many other shows, exhibitions and events throughout Germany.
