BMW M3 Competition owners will be pleased to learn that AC Schnitzer has created a series of performance enhancements for the G80 model. New features including more power, aerodynamic aspects, and suspension components should help you get picking up speed.

The tuner has firstly used its magic wand on the straight-six motor of the BMW M3 Competition to increase power from 503 hp (510 PS/375 kW) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque to 582 hp (590 PS/434 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm). All of this is backed by a four-year warranty.

There are two carbon "Sport" tailpipes on either side of the back of the AC Schnitzer, hinting at increased power. They work better as a team since they can increase both the flow and the sound at about the same moment. The M3 Competition's front may be lowered by up to 20 mm. Compression and rebound are independently adjustable thanks to the RS coilovers' suspension spring kit.

When it comes to suspension, AC Schnitzer says their credo is "better quick than hard," which is a powerful motto. Up to 40 kg (88 lbs) of additional downforce can be obtained at 200 km/h (124 mph) by installing a front splitter. BMW M3's aerodynamics continue on the front fenders with a four-piece deflector set that is matched by styling cues on the hood.

A roof spoiler offers an additional 20 kg (44 lbs) of downforce towards the rear. As a result, you'll have an additional 70 kg (154 lbs) of downforce thanks to the rear diffusor and new Carbon Racing rear wing, which also features a gurney flap.

The AC3 Lightweight Forged Wheels, which come in Silver/Anthracite or Anthracite/Silver and size 10.0 J x 20 inches, keep unsprung weight low. The front wheels can have 285/30 R 20 tires, while the rear wheels can have 295/30 R 20 tires.

A black Nappa leather and black Alcantara-covered steering wheel, developed exclusively by AC Schnitzer, can be found within. Drivers will appreciate recessed grips since they provide a more comfortable location to relax their thumbs. To give the BMW M3 inside a sportier appearance, aluminum pedals, footrests, a keyholder, and the iDrive Controller cover are all included.
