AC Schnitzer Tension : From Concept to Street Version

Remember the "bugs bunny" toothed AC Schnitzer Tension Concept of the 2005 IAA (Frankfurt Motor Show) that put all Bangle creations to shame (see the yellow colored 6 Series) ? Well, its no concept anymore as BMW specialist, AC Schnitzer decided to put this wacky looking version of the BMW 6 Series in production.

On the other hand, we should feel lucky that no more than 50 examples will be built. The conversion work will be performed exclusively by AC Schnitzer in Aachen. The only exceptions are the USA and Japan, where trained specialists perform the vehicle conversion locally.
