AC Schnitzer Creates Bolt-on Tuning Kit for the MINI Coupé

German tuning outfit AC Schnitzer has created a series of bolt-on performance mods for the already high-performing MINI Coupé. Touching everything from the transmission to the brakes, they’ve put their spin on the new hard top two-seater.

MINI Coupe owners can start to improve the already competent handling even more with AC Schnitzers limited slip differential, height-adjustable racing suspension, aluminium strut tower brace and rear axle antiroll bar.

With improved handling a high performance brake system is also needed. 4-piston fixed calipers with slotted discs, upgraded brake pads, caliper holder and braided steel brake lines can be supplied while AC Schnitzer’s Mi2 BiColor wheels in 18 inches or the Mi1 silver wheels in 17 inch can complete the suspension upgrades.

Other components available include the AC Schnitzer complete sport exhaust system with chromed racing tailpipe trim from the MINI Cooper S and the John Cooper Works Coupe, “Technology & Design” sticker set, gear knob with digital gear display, aluminium pedal set, foot rests, handbrake handle and velours foot mats.

Apparently there’s an exterior design package in the works as well, which should make for a more exciting photo gallery. In the mean time, you can see the current car here.

    I love the way that stock Cooper bumper looks when the gap is gone from the wheel arches.  That picture makes it look like you don’t even need the JCW aero kit when with out the lowered suspension I would never even think about ordering a car without it!
