Each AC Schnitzer aerodynamic component begins in the mind of Head Designer Michele Viandante, a true Italian artist. Concepts are then modeled on a computer and clay mock ups are built. A rigorous testing program is applied including wind-tunnel trials and safety assessments to ensure compliance with German road safety standards. The result is a component whose form follows its function, whose beauty is also its utility.

Every AC Schnitzer carbon fiber component is handmade using the best materials and processes available. Plastic components are molded from PU-RIM just like original equipment. The resulting products are of unsurpassed quality and functionality.

The rear racing wing for the M4 generates up to 68kg of downforce. The i8 with AC Schnitzer lowering and aerodynamics package was crowned the fastest i8 around the Nordschleife with a time of 08:19.80.
