Cool AC Schnitzer builds the world's fastest Diesel car. The ACS3 35d.

As reported on E90post Homepage.

AC Schnitzer re-visited the nardo testing track in Italy and came away with a new world record for a diesel powered car. The new world record stands at 288.7km/h (or 179.4 mph).

AC Schnitzer says the power upgrades made to the record breaking car are actually availble for anyone to purchase as part of their upgrade packages.

Another impressive performance came out of the Z4 based ACS4 3.5turbo based on the sdrive35. Although not a world record, the top speed of 303.1 km/h is very impressive for a roadster!

More information will be forthcoming in Auto Bild magazine.

PRESS RELEASE:

AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupé reaches 288.7 km/h in Nardò

Third World Record in Succession: AC Schnitzer builds fastest diesel car


It's a hat-trick: for the third time, AC Schnitzer has gone to Nardò in southern Italy and brought home a third world record for Aachen.

The legendary high-speed circuit has already been the setting for so many records. Once a year in southern Italy, under the aegis of "CONTINENTAL AG" and in collaboration with the editors of "AUTO BILD sportscars", the 'creme de la crème' of vehicle tuners go head to head - this year on 18th and 19th October 2009.

The AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupé succeeded in breaking the world record from 2006 for the fastest road-legal diesel car by over 8.7 km/h.

288.7 km/h

was the figure on the display of the GPS speedometer system on the 13 km long high-speed circuit - which is in principle a giant oversized circle - after the fast lap of the AC Schnitzer ACS3 3.5d Coupé.

After the records from 2006 with the TENSION as the fastest road-legal BMW, the world record still held by the GP3.10 GAS POWERED from 2007 for gas-powered vehicles, the ACS3 3.5d Coupé (based on the BMW 335d) has continued the success story.

Naturally the power upgrade which took the latest world record holder to success is part of the extensive AC Schnitzer special accessory range and available for all vehicles based on the 3.5d engine. It is TÜV-approved and available from BMW dealers.

Another impressive performance in Nardò came from the AC Schnitzer ACS4 3.5 turbo (based on the BMW Z4 sdrive 35i). At 303.1 km/h, this was not a new world, but such a high speed is almost unheard of for a Roadster. The Z4 was also running with the commercial version of the AC Schnitzer performance upgrade for 3.5i engines. Quickly, as we found out.

I like whats under the hood but I don't like how they dressed up the exterior (with the exception of the mufflers).

Props to ACS for continuing ground-breaking development though.

Probably not much better than stock. Diesels don't shine on the 0-60 test, which really isn't real world anyway.

are you kidding me?

Diesels have so much torque that if you get the power on the street you`ll blow away any similar powered petrol car on short sprints

I'm not a big fan of Audi anymore, but props where props are due. That's one sick machine.

exactly, so a rolling 5-60 would be incredible. my previous statement of 0-60 not being real world still stands.

I would much rather have a smoking 50km/h - 150 km/h time as that is more useful to me than stoplight racing.

BTW, the 325 loved cruising home today at 150km/h in the snow
