AC Schnitzer Mini Cooper Coupe
A really sporting example recently celebrated its premiere: the standard model of the MINI Cooper Coupé. But the MINI tuning experts at AC Schnitzer are working "Beyond the standard", as demonstrated by some impressive tuning highlights for the agile two-seater.
Performance upgrades for the MINI Cooper SD Coupé and S Coupé are currently in development and planning respectively. Balanced handling on the exit from tight corners is already guaranteed by the AC Schnitzer limited slip differential for the MINI Cooper S Coupé with locking up to 75%.
The perfect driving experience is enhanced by the acoustic qualities of the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer of stainless steel with chromed Racing tailpipe trim for the MINI Cooper S and the John Cooper Works Coupé. The AC Schnitzer sports exhaust system optimally balances the complete exhaust system to the demands of higher power and tuned engines.
The promises made by a sporting engine are backed up by the AC Schnitzer high performance brake system. The 4-piston fixed caliper brakes (left/right) with slotted discs (left/right), the set of brake pads, caliper holder and steel flexible brake lines, hold the thoroughbred two-seater in check.
Like every athlete, the MINI Cooper Coupé needs high performance "movement gear“. In the case of the MINI Cooper Coupé by AC Schnitzer, this includes a height-adjustable racing suspension or the AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit, an aluminium strut brace and special antiroll bar for the rear axle which further reinforce the Go-kart-like driving sensation so characteristic of the MINI.
Its extravagant body style identifies the MINI Cooper Coupé as an absolute athlete. But to demonstrate that AC Schnitzer know-how has also been applied to your MINI, you can opt for the AC Schnitzer decor set available in various designs, together with the rear "Technology & Design“ sticker.
In the interior too, the MINI Cooper Coupé by AC Schnitzer is a whole length ahead of the standard model. The standard premium comfort can be enhanced by the AC Schnitzer gear knob with digital gear display, aluminium pedal set, foot rests, "Black Line" handbrake handle and velours foot mats.
A sporting stance on the road is provided by the AC Schnitzer Mi2 BiColor wheels in 18 inch or the Mi 1 silver wheels in 17 inch with corresponding tires.
In this guise, the MINI Cooper Coupé is guaranteed a place on the top step of the podium. Last but not least, competitors will be most impressed by the chromed AC Schnitzer exhaust trim. Because successful race cars are usually only viewed from one perspective: behind.
