There are certain modifications that make no sense and then there are some that really just do, like this! AC Schnitzer have installed an S55 engine from the BMW M4 into a ‘normal’ 235i, and taken power up to a mere 570PS and 740Nm in the process.

It may not look like any standard 2 Series, but the ACL2 is clearly something quite extraordinary, built as a one-off. Afterwards we head to take a look in the workshop at the ACS2 Sport, an M2 package that includes cosmetic modifications as well as a 60PS bump to 430PS.

Thank you to AC Schnitzer for hosting my visit, hopefully next time there will be less snow around and we can take some cars out for drives!
