German aftermarket specialist AC Schnitzer's intepretation of Range Rover's sporty SUV at the Geneva Show was unveiled and they've made some serious mods to it.
Starting from a Range Rover Sport 3.0L SD V6 Diesel, AC Schnitzer added a new aerodynamic kit including redesigned front and rear bumpers, a rear diffuser, gloss black details as well as Type VIII forged racing rims in 10.0J x 22 inch shod with 275/40 R 22 tires.
AC Schnitzer also offers 10.5J x 23 inch alloys with 305/30 R 23 tires. On the inside, AC Schnitzer added a keyholder and velour foot-mats in sophisticated design.
The most significant changes have been made under the hood. AC Schintzer upgraded the 3.0 liter diesel V6 engine from 288 hp and 600 Nm to 335 hp and 720 Nm of torque. The tuner says the CO2 emissions of the Range Rover remain constant, meaning the CO2 emissions per horsepower have in fact fallen.
Other upgrades include an AC Schnitzer stainless steel twin silencer with two “Sports Trim” tailpipes or four “Sport” tailpipes, as well as a suspension lowering module that brings the Range Rover Sport closer to the ground by up to 35mm.
