Mention AC Schnitzer to almost any auto enthusiast, and you'll be bombarded by talks on souped-up or dressed-up BMWs. Synonymous to the Bavarian automaker, AC Schnitzer has built a reputation of making what are already good-looking (and equally fast) BMWs, even better.
Sure, they also have customization options for Mini, Land Rover, and Jaguar, but it is with BMW where they originally found success. But it looks like the company is looking at branching out to another brand: Toyota.
We weren't at all surprised by it, though, as the exact vehicle that they tinkered with is the all-new GR Supra. Essentially the twin to the new BMW Z4, the hardtop coupe from Toyota gets a plethora of exterior and interior upgrades, along with a slightly more powerful inline-six under the hood.
Starting with its exterior, a huge carbon fiber rear wing now makes its home at the back and provides additional downforce. There's also a new front splitter, as well as hood vents that are specifically made for the Supra. In addition, a shiny new set of forged alloy wheels give the coupe a sportier appearance. The two sets measure 20-inches and are available either in silver or bi-color finishes.
Inside, AC Schnitzer added some brightwork in dressing up the Supra. Serving as the shiny bits are the aluminum pedals, and the aluminum footrest. There's even an AC Schnitzer-specific key holder which can be placed on the cupholder for easy stowage.
Under the hood, the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six gets more horsepower thanks to an ECU upgrade. They did not mention any specifics but they did claim the Supra now produces 400 PS and 600 Nm of torque, eclipsing the stock figure of 335 PS with 500 Nm. Complementing the more powerful engine are new exhaust silencers that sweeten the inline-six's exhaust note. As an added touch, the exhaust tips can be had in either carbon black or anodized stainless steel for a sleeker look.
Want to make the Supra handle better? AC Schnitzer also made a fully adjustable coilover system which drops the ride height by 25mm. If you prefer something simpler, they are also offering a spring kit which can work alongside the adaptive dampers, and drops the ride by about 15mm.
