The AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupe, that won the TUNE IT! SAFE! award at the Essen Motor Show last year, was tested on a racetrack in Barcelona. The car was in DTM driver Bruno Spengler's hands, who lapped it under wet conditions.

As we have already mentioned, the BMW 428i Coupe-based police car has a 294 HP (216 kW), 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo engine under the hood. The AC Schnitzer ACS4 2.8i Coupe can reach 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds. The 50-112 mph (80-180 km/h) sprint is done in 12.7 seconds, while the electronically-limited max speed reaches 155 mph (250 km/h).

The perfect car to match the Association of German Vehicle Tuners' (VDAT) motto - “only serious and safe tuning will bring the driving fun you want”, right?
