AC Schnitzer BMW X5 Falcon
If we are to believe AC Schnitzer, then the Aachen-based tuner’s new wide-bodykit for the BMW X5 was inspired from a falcon. Last time we checked though, falcons actually look like prey birds and not like overstuffed chickens but we guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Leaving our personal sense of aesthetics aside, the AC Schnitzer’s Falcon widening kit includes front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts, fender flairs, a roof spoiler and two triangular air intakes on the bonnet which are complemented by 22-inch alloy wheels and a set of chromed tailpipes. -Continued
The German tuner also offers sport suspension upgrades and a power kit for the BMW X5's 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine which raises output from the standard 286 HP to 310 HP. Maximum torque is also increased from 580 to 680 Nm.
