Is there anything that speaks against continuing a real success story? Many people have already asked themselves this question and answered the question with something like “never change a running system”. We see it the same way and are pleased that the model history of the MINI F56 / F57 continues with the new MINI LCI II. Accordingly, AC Schnitzer also relies on the tried and tested in its special developments for the MINI LCI II. Models: the JCW with 170 kW / 231 PS standard output comes with the AC Schnitzer performance upgrade with a sporty 195 kW / 265 PS. As always with AC Schnitzer, the performance upgrade is delivered including an assembly guarantee, which can be extended to the AC Schnitzer sports rear silencer made of stainless steel, which is also available.

When it comes to tailpipes, the customer can choose between three versions in chrome, black or carbon - all of them in the “sport” design and all of them are also available on their own as a purely tailpipe solution. The AC Schnitzer suspension spring kit enables improved cornering by lowering the vehicle's center of gravity by approx. 20 - 30 mm on the front and 25 - 35 mm on the rear axle.
In conjunction with AC1 light alloy wheels in BiColor, anthracite or optionally painted black, which are fitted with 215/35 R 19 tires, the driving dynamics of the MINI LCI II are noticeably optimized again. Of course, there have to be a few minor optimizations, and from AC Schnitzer's point of view, these are still needed even after the second facelift.
unmistakable AC Schnitzer front grill
The AC Schnitzer front grille is brand new and, in conjunction with the front splitter and the new decor set, gives the MINI LCI II a really complete, sporty look. In the interior, aluminum accessories set selective accents. If we get more information about the changes, there will of course be an update for this report. You will be informed of this if you simply our Feed subscribe to. Have fun watching the pictures and stay true to us!
