For this year’s Geneva show, AC Schnitzer has ripped off the BMW M235i Coupe’s original engine to replace it with the one found in the M4.

It’s called the ACL2 and uses an uprated S55 unit from the M4 as instead of the stock 431 PS (317 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm), the engine generates a massive 570 PS (411 kW) and 546 lb-ft (740 Nm.)

“The Hulk” as we like to call it also ditches the electronic top speed limiter and will top out at 205 mph (330 kph.) This will happen after running the sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in just 3.9 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 kph) in 10.9 seconds.

It tips the scales at 3,196 pounds (1,450 kilograms) and benefits from numerous other upgrades, including an optimized carbon air intake, rear axle limited slip differential, and a custom exhaust system. Braking power is provided by carbon ceramic discs paired with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers stopping those 20-inch red wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

AC Schnitzer also installed the M4’s suspension and developed a comprehensive aerodynamic body kit that makes the M235i Coupe a lot wider. Several carbon fiber bits and pieces have been added, along with a vented hood and a large rear wing boosting downforce at the rear axle.

A lot of work was also done inside the cabin where you won’t find the rear seats as these were eliminated to shave off weight. Green & black Nappa leather upholstery was applied on those racing seats while a 330-kph speedometer will also be offered.

Rounding off the list of interior changes are the velour floor mats, aluminum pedal set and an extra screen replacing the center-left vent to show oil temperature, boost pressure, intake air temperature, and other info.

The AC Schnitzer ACL2 currently being showcased in Geneva has an estimated value of €149,000, but the tuner mentions it’s not for sale.
