AC Schnitzer BMW 1M Details Announced Ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show Debut

AC Schnitzer has officially revealed details of its tuning program for BMW's new 1M Coupe, and is set to officially debut the car at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show next month. AC Schnitzer's take on the BMW 1M (at least initially) has a focus on aesthetics, brakes and suspension, leaving the powerplant untouched. It's only a matter of time before a power package is released.

First off are the new upgraded brakes that AC Schnitzer is offering for the 1M. Featuring internally-vented brake discs, the upgrade also features 6-piston calipers in the front and 4-piston calipers in the rear. And while it's not much, there is a weight saving of about 9-lbs compared to the standard brakes.

For suspension, 1M owners can lower their vehicles about 0.4-inch to 0.8-inch depending on their preference. While not shown in the photos, there is an aerodynamic package that will be unveiled soon (at the Frankfurt show presumably) featuring a new front lip, rear diffuser and roof spoiler. And naturally, AC Schnitzer will have their wheel collection available with 1M fitments.

For the inside, AC Schnitzer's huge variety of interior upgrades are now available for the 1M from leather shift knob to pedals and a cover for the i-Drive system controller.
