AC Schnitzer releases the X6 Falcon

AC Schnitzer X6 fq

It was only a matter of time before AC Schnitzer turned its hand to the X6, and the result has just been released as the BMW X6 Falcon.

Using the X5 Falcon as styling inspiration, the X6 variant gets the same stretched out body work, allowing it a 70mm wider track in the front and an additional 80mm in the rear. According to AC, extensive testing was done on the Nurburgring to refine the Falcon’s high-speed capability, helped by a new front lip, air intakes, repositioned fog lamps, side skirts and rear wing. Black or silver 22-inch Type VII wheels fill the arches.

As for power, the only models to benefit from engine tweaks are the X6 3.0d and 3.5d, boosting power to 272 hp (from 235 hp) and 310 hp (from 286 hp), respectively. AC will also be selling custom chrome tailpipes, aluminum interior trim, pedals and floor mats emblazoned with its logo.
