Fra null til 100 på 6,9 sekunder, en toppfart på 235 km/t, 190 hk/140 kW rå kraft og bare 99g/km av CO2 - er dette mulig? Dynamikk og maksimal kjøreglede sammen med mindre utslipp er noe alle BMWer kan tilby for tiden. Dette er en reell utfordring
om den kjente tuneren AC Schnitzer har taklet meget
bra med sin konseptbil 99d.
Som alltid, var utfordringen å "bygge på" en høy grad av sportslighet, men denne gangen var det en ting til som fikk minst like mye prioritet: Å vise ansvar for miljøet og gi en kort presentasjon på hvordan man tror trender kanskje vil utvikle seg over de neste tiårene.
AC Schnitzer 99d BMW bruker den mest effektive dieselmotoren som stammer fra 320d EfficientDynamics Edition. De Aachen-baserte tunerne har ganske enkelt modifisert litt og økt antall hestekrefter fra 163 til 190 hk.
Intelligent weight reduction
The vehicle is an incredible 230 kg lighter – all thanks to a systematic lightweight construction concept. A lithium-ion battery and materials such as carbon, magnesium and titanium have all helped to achieve this dramatic weight reduction. No other BMW series features a lighter vehicle!
Revolutionary weight reduction
A full 35 kg has also been saved when it comes to the parts attached directly to the tires. Materials from the aerospace industry as well as custom products such as the AC Schnitzer four-piston, high-performance, lightweight braking equipment with retraction system for the front axle and the one-part, high-strength, type VIII forged wheel rims with titanium wheel bolts ensure both low weight and maximum agility.
Conti on board too
The Continental BLUECO is a special concept development for the AC Schnitzer 99d. This ContiSportContact 5P upgrade ensures optimum rolling resistance, high cornering capability and a ZR speed rating for over 240 km/h.
Improved aerodynamics, reduced weight, less friction – and yet no compromise on the driving pleasure that customers of AC Schnitzer have come to value for more than 20 years. The challenge was taken up and the goals have been achieved! And the results were so successful that AC Schnitzer had to create a new name for this groundbreaking concept: "Efficient Performance".
Focusing on the essentials without compromising on extras: Of course, the 99d is equipped with everything from safety modules such as airbags and ESC to multimedia interfaces (e.g. for linking the on-board computer and iPhone).
3.8 liter diesel engine over 100 kilometers. Hard to believe, but that's all it is. It's just a shame that this dream has only been realized as a one-off because the concept car was developed as a technology showcase and is not for sale.
