Widebody BMW X6 From AC Schnitzer Spotted in The UK
We’ve seen so many variants of BMW‘s X6 by now that we’re not even sure which one is our favorite anymore. But it’s clear that the aftermarket has really embraced BMW’s performance SUV despite its odd identity crisis. This time it’s AC Schnitzer with a widebody X6. Interestingly AC Schnitzer hasn’t officially released this kit yet, with the vehicle making its first appearance at the National BMW Festival out in the United Kingdom.
AC Schnitzer is well known for tuning BMWs and their styling has always been unique. Simply put, it’s hard to mistake AC Schnitzer’s body kits. Clearly what we can see on the X6 is a full body kit (front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, rear trunk and roof spoiler), alongside widebody arches that allows 11-inch wide wheels to look comfortably at home.
A set of traditional AC Schnitzer wheels also outfit the car. We found this X6 to be one of the cleaner yet more aggressive ones out of all the X6s we’ve seen, with the widebody fitting the style of the X6 quite nicely. As for the Aston Martin-inspired frong grille, well, we’ll pass on that.
We’re sure it’s just a matter of time before someone in the United States pops up with one for us to check out.
